Spent some time reading glassist C.Morgan’s blog … besides loving her art, I appreciate her sense of humor. So, now … she has me intrigued with glass casting (absolutely love her statue ‘Shout’ – check it out!). Oh, soooo much to learn, supplies and equipment to gather … Uh Oh!
I also found a bit more on my [dream] goal of capturing images in glass (liquid light and Fuji emulsion film) … which means I have more research to do. Or, I could just start saving vacation days and money to attend a class on the west coast … Hmmm?!? Somehow I don’t think DH, the kids OR my pups will go for that …

Meanwhile, DH is happy. He’s got a new project going, one that will let him use his new toy – the car hoist. He’s purchased a beat up ‘63 Monterey convertible to rebuild/repair.
