So, we spent Wednesday on the road making my way down to Wesleyan Potters in Middletown, CT to pick up a few pots which had been around a while. It happens, somehow, they had just not found a home. The trek however, was a case of multi-tasking as I was also to deliver a dinnerware commission along the way just in time for the holidays and saving me the effort of packing it all up and shipping it out by UPS. As usual, the trip took us close enough to Guilford that we had lunch at Nick's, yes cheeseburgers with well done onion rings and then a stop at a wine store we used to frequent and lastly a cannoli run. Our last stop in the area was to Meriano's Bake Shoppe ("leave the gun, take the cannoli") where we picked up a box of cannoli for the holidays. These cannoli remind me of the old style care and attention from a bakery like where I grew up, Danny's Bakery in Plattsburgh (NY), friends of the family. All in all, a nice trip on a sunny and sometimes partly cloudy day that serves to be the last of my pottery business prior to Christmas. It was a good way to spend a day.
