oh, i forgot to tell you.
the last time i made little holes
was in 1969, six teapots in the kiln two days
before a show.
i forgot to clean the holes in all of them. not one
poured a drop. six beauties in the trash/smashed.
they would have all sold, 500 dollar mistake.
that was it. no more tiny holes.
just one big one.
and, that was in my head.

If your grandma was pouring tea in 1843, you must be REALLY OLD!!!!!!!!!

Not if his grandmother started pouring tea early, say aged ten, and had a
son quite late, say in 1873, who fathered Mel in his eighties. That could
make Mel under 60. Scandawegian stock you know, made to last. ;^)
