I haven't had much posting time this week: Jamie and Catherine have been here since Saturday and I've wanted visiting time when not at work. They had planned to camp this week, but it turns out that they do have "enough sense to come in out of the rain" after all. Today they are heading down to the California Redwoods as there appears to be a break in the weather.
Last night Catherine prepared us a feast of Indian dishes. And an apple pie.
For those in Oregon or who get OPB, I got an e-mail from Mark in Eugene yesterday:
"I thought you might like to know that Ken will be one of the featured artists on Oregon Art Beat on OPB tomorrow evening at 8:00 pm. Ken hasn't seen the footage yet himself, but he expects that Sweet Pea and Cosmos will be appropriately recognized as the capable studio assistants that they are."
Ken is a talented potter. Mark and Ken are owned by two Cardigans. Sweet Pea is a Stratus/Inca daughter and Cosmos is aHunter/Alice son.

Sculptor Kenneth Standhardt
- Kenneth Standhardt makes ceramic vessels that look like woven baskets – and he makes all his designs with a can opener. He spends hours making each tiny mark by hand – and the result looks perfect.

Here it is for those not fortunate enough to get OPB. To be Cardigan related: Cosmos has quite a bit of air time.
