My focus for this page is like I said at the beginning, which is to talk about the comings and goings in my struggle to start a pottery gallery.  Ive let you down in this aspect. Well now it is officially two months until I get my first of two hips replaced again. This has caused me to step up production of products and try to get more sales.  I doubt that I can keep the store open while Im recovering from this.
