So, these are the berry bowls that were going to be fired. That one in the corner that looks intact? It isn't. Big hunk missing from the rim. There were a dozen. Plus a nice fern platter. Little boy started throwing up early this morning, so I'd called the swimming teacher to reschedule our lessons. The phone rang as I was walking out the door. I put the tray down on the shelf/ledge (normally wide and sturdy enough for the load), to get the phone, then I heard the crash. How nice to lose $250 and disappoint a half-dozen people in one second.
So my day's plans have changed somewhat. And it wasn't even the swimming teacher on the phone. I guess this is why we have answering machines?
