match.com.....really???


This is a second marriage for both Bill and I and I think we got it right this time.  It's actually a 3rd for me, but the first one was just as a young 19 year old and it lasted less than a year soooo....technically it does count, but I was a REALLY YOUNG RISK TAKER back then!  What's great about our marriage is everything that we have in common.  One of the things that I loved about his personality was his love of all things artistic.  Meeting someone like him was a little more thought out this time....not a random meeting in the produce dept. at the grocery store (I hear that's how it happens sometimes to people that aren't me), but a planned meeting through match.com.  For all you single people out there who would like to have someone in your life, I would highly recommend it.  What I also recommend is that you do your homework on the topic prior to jumping into it.  Okay, there's a few true confessions.  I was really just going to mention the woodfiring, but sometimes my fingers type into another direction.  I'm a risk taker, so ....Why Not?....just go with it?  It takes less thinking that way!! 


I guess I'm not as much of a risk taker when it comes to firing a kiln.  Bill is.  There have been many trials and tribulations that revolve around that too.  I'm hoping that tomorrow, all of that experience (10 firings) gives him the results that he wants. He made the beads in the picture, I'm getting them glazed so that he can do all the grunt work to get the kiln ready.....He likes that kinda thing...wood, cutting, splitting, chopping, etc.  I like to plunk my butt down and know that the biggest pain in the butt will be getting those little guys to make "happy" with the bead wire that they are going get into the HEAT with!  So there you have it ....a match made on the internet over 5 years ago and a woodfiring from our country home tomorrow!  I think we have a good thing going!
