OT: My other 'Hobby'
Before I ever even thought about picking up a needle, I was a potter. Of course I am still a potter, "Once you get clay on your hands, you can never wash it off." but it's been a while since I've been at it. If you are curious here are some examples of my work:

Also if you would like to see who taught me the art of the potter, go to: www.pleasanthillpottery.com (Tom Rohr) May he rest in peace.

Wowzers! I was never good at pottery. So I envy those who are.

Clay? Oh, you're a clay potter.

Here I though you might be another Harry Potter fan.

Nothing wrong with clay though. I enjoyed the ceramics class I took at University.

Too bad I'm not on Facebook, I couldn't see your work. The Pleasant Hill Pottery site had excellent photographs in the galleries. As a one time yearbook photographic editor I was disappointed by the total absence of captions for the gallery photos.

Can we thump Jack for that bad pun? Or smack him with wet yarn... wool yarn?

What pun? I was speaking of the literary "Harry Potter."

igklico, doesn't seem to have an over abundance of hair (if the avatar is igklico).
