minnesota mel/ spiders/kaboom!

A very large planter (only thing in the kiln) exploded in the bisque,
I do mean exploded, it rocked the neighbourbood!
Now, Mel San has admitted to having trained spiders in my studio,
ready to go into action when I don't behave, this one was an
airbubble kiln spider.
Although I am pleased to know that it was no fault of mine that sent
my planter to smithereens heaven and I promised Mel I would not yell
at him. Now who could yell at Mel?
I did NOT say I would not warn clayarters to be good little potters
or who knows Mel's trained spiders could strike when you least expect
it! Gotta watch that man!
