Keith's my Superhero!

Now I can get back to work, thanks to Mike's dad. His kick-ass moves crushed that evil win32 worm that killed my computer yesterday morning. Thank you, thank you! Watch out Etsy, here I come (sure wish I had Keith's cool camera AND his photography skills)...You ROCK, Keith!

Happy 12th Birthday, Trey!!!

The cake is finished, gifts are wrapped and school was skipped today. But what's a birthday without PartyBoy Mike??! He and Justin have been delivering auction purchases all day...from Wilkesboro NC to Greenville, SC. Trey's excited about the Mario Bros. Question Mark Block cake that I made at his request. He's already opened a couple of presents that he got in the mail today. Thanks, Faye & HarHar for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2...it arrived on time! And for the card filled with cash money! He's been playing the new game all day, only getting up to admire the cake in the fridge every once in awhile. Will post drunken party pix later.

This Daniel Seagle 5 gallon jug....


....brought $10,000.00 yesterday at Tony McBride's antiques auction....and I'm the lucky one who held it up for the crowd while it was being auctioned. Can you believe Tony trusted me with this?? Woohoo! Daniel Seagle (1805-1867) was the first master potter of the Catawba River Valley. Read more about him at http://danielseagle.com/home. Be on the lookout for this at US 1 Flea, Mon Faye & HarHar!
