Coffee in the San Francisco skyline mug, "Kathy's Waltz" by Dave Brubeck for music. Picked up a new fax machine last night. I wanted just a plain, basic fax--no frills, no other features--but the HP all-in-one (printer, scanner fax with phone) was $10 cheaper ($49) than the lowest plain fax at Office Depot. Got home with it just in time for an earthshaking thunderstorm. Mindful of the last two fax machines I lost to lightning, I am still waiting to set-it up--even though I was smart this time and got a surge protector that has input jacks for the phone lines as well as the electrical outlets so I should be safe. I *can* be trained.
Today I go back to Lori's and grind some more--I am clearly addicted. I am so addicted that I spent about an hour on HIS Glassworks drooling over lathes, grinding wheels, grinding pads, diamond points... Diamonds ARE a girl's best friend, some of us just prefer them plated to a wheel or a disc or a pad :-). They carry a couple of lathes designed by Steve Klein for Covington; one of which tempts me mightily.
Today is also the day I order Hang Your Glass components and prepare to venture into the realm of public installation. Fortunately I do not have to install the glass, all I have to do is mount the hanging hardware. The gallery that is in charge of the project will do all the display. I'll be back on a lathe or a wet-belt or somesuch.
Happy Friday, all.
