Joara Pottery Festival Sneak Peek : Platter

This 15" platter will be at the Joara Pottery Festival in Morganton, NC.

My father was huge into computers back when people thought computers were just a sci fi story feature.

Dad wanted me to "go into computers". I fought it a very long time.

"Computer robots will do the factory jobs better than humans." Dad said with enthusiam.
"But Dad," I said, "what will those people do for jobs?"
Startled, my father thought a moment, then said, "They could become programmers!"
I didn't argue, but I knew I didn't want to be a programmer.
