Well I lost that argument. So we drove 4 blocks to the Community Art center. You pick your battles. Anyway I got a nice bowl. They even washed it after. But later in the day I got hungry- I was finally putting in the new light fixtures in the garage, and had on my Carhartt work coat. So i went in and cleaned up, put my work coat back on and went for the supper sitting and met up with some friends.
I got another great bowl, this time I chose Chicken Noodle Soup (from Kennedy High School). A tad salty for my taste- but then Chicken Noodle usually is. But very good. Good thing I wore my working coat- one of the gals working the event passing out the bread and cookies said You look like you are a working man and found me a good sized roll to eat with my soup! It pays to advertise! Anyway- Good day- I got light in my garage, filled up on soup, and was able to support the Highline area food bank and the local art community. Guess that's more than a two-fer. Sounds like a three-fer to me. I even got some work done on a couple of items that will appear on my etsy shop! Any way, it looked like they were on their way to a sell out. The local potters donated 1006 bowls. That should come out to $10,060 raised! 90% will go to the food bank and 10% goes to fund children's programs at the art center!
Whenever I attend an event like this, I am always reminded of one of my favorite T- Shirts- "It will be a great day when the schools and libraries have all the money they need and the air force has to hold a bake sale to build a bomber!" I love productive days!
