Let It Rip Not to Rest In Peace

One of those days not even sure what to post about. Still having connection trouble. But really wasn't going to do anything about it until September.
Technology sure take up time. Mostly when one has dial up.

Today there was a mobile food truck came up to Bonners Ferry. Actual not that many came. Not sure why such a low turn out.
It has nothing to do with income.
Confession time....Not sure the reason I'm standing in line is that I'm frugal or greedy.  At this time Murphy and I monthly income is $1,070 a month.
Yes, I know many of you don't think this is much of income. But like I said our utilities runs right around $200 a month.
There people who stood in line for food give away. Some of them I know get up and go to work.  Opinion time...I fine this total bull shit that a person goes to work and can't make a living wage that there standing in a food line....
Actual minimum wage should be $10.74 I make more then this but I don't get the hours. Some one make the federal minimum wage of $7.25 can get food stamps.....Statement time...How discussing.

I've got back casting my ceramics. Let see what have I've poured some thimble, Christmas-ornaments, and a statue of Jesus.
But then there some items sitting in the molds...more ornaments, clown napkin ring holder and plain ones. Not going to predict what will or won't come out.
I believe I came up a better way to improve the slip I've been pouring with.
Painting on sleeping clown

I got back to walking also.

Coffee is on



  1. I'm not even sure what to say in reference to the post. I know it can be tough and it's been a whiles since I've been in that particular position.

    I hope the ceramic casting goes well for you and not many burst in the kiln!

  2. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us! I agree that it must be frustrating to have job and still not being able to pay the bills. We have a proverb in Germany that goes along the lines: Everyone is its own luck's master. This means that if you want to reach your full potential it boils down to your very own driving force. This is why education for example if for free in Germany. The German culture believes that education is part of a human right and should not be determined by the thickness of your daddy's money pocket! Studying is for free too. If you want to become a doctor or a lawyer, this is your personally choice and you have to go through the effort to achieve your goals. I personally believe that we all can reach our full potential if we put all our energy and passion into what is really important to us. If you live your life more passionate, if you craft your arts with all the passion there is, then you will eventually master your arts and your life. This will then attract more people in your life who are passionate about arts and living life passionately. I wish you from the bottom of my heart that you will attract more of those people in your life. Money comes secondary then.
    Sending you good vibes from Down Under.

  3. my friend volunteers at the food bank and says chinese grocers take tons of food and some of the volunteers grab the best stuff for themselves.

    my lemon tomatoes are turning out quite good.

  4. I think I live pretty well on my 985 bucks a month, just have to learn how to be great at being a bum.

  5. It's hard all around but as Sonja says it's our choice to make lemonade from the lemons we are given. I hope your ceramics turn out well. take care.
