Yesterday I drove to Portland, Maine to pick up my order of clay and a few other supplies to get me going. What should have been an easy hour and 7 minute drive (according to GPS) ended up taking a frustrating hour and 40 minutes! That GPS had me driving all over tarnation once I got into Portland. I was wanting to find Washington Avenue, but that road literally did not exist! So, I pulled into a gas station to fill up and ask for directions. It turned out that I was in South Portland and need to be in just plain Portland. I definitely plugged in just plain Portland into the GPS too, so I don’t know what it was doing. As helpful as GPS is, sometimes it really does have a mind of its own!
I realize I am going to have to make a few orders over the next month or so to afford what I need. In this order, however, I brought home 300 pounds of B-Mix clay, a dozen 12″ plastic bats, and standard calipers. I watched the guy, with a big smile on my face, as he loaded my clay into the back of my car! It was an exciting moment and I am hoping to sit down at my wheel for the first time this Thursday!
