      Sorry for the personal nature of the posting, but I figured I ought
      to post an updated photo of my son Asa. He is now almost 8 months
      old and rules our household with a small iron fist. He is actually
      a dream baby and we are truly blessed to have him. Now, if I can
      just get him to start collecting pottery...

      Not much new to report on that front. A few interesting pieces on
      ebay, but mostly all is quiet. Went to many many antique shops in
      Atlanta, including two giant malls with several thousand vendors in
      each mall and found exactly zero Blanding pieces and only two Vernon
      pieces of any kind.

      For those interested in non-Blanding pottery, I did find some great
      pieces of the Anchor pattern by Tepco and Shenango that were used by
      the Navy in WWII while diving on Palmyra Atoll (about 1000 miles
      south of Hawaii). The atoll was basically turned into an aircraft
      carrier by the Navy and they stationed something like 6000 men there
      during the war. Lots of stuff just got bulldozed into the lagoon at
      the end of the war and I was amazed when I found numerous pieces of
      Tepco and Shenango in the sand (the jumbles of aircraft parts, other
      wreckage, and the 100 or so reef sharks made the dives quite
      interesting). All in all a great trip to an amazing place and to
      find pottery just made it all the more special.

      Aloha, Michael

        All children are future DB historians. Welcome to the small crowd of our children and grandchildren that have (or wil have) an appreciation for DB and all artists in general. My granddaughter graduates on June 11th from High School and other than the usual cahiers check, she requested a copy of one of my DB original black/white pieces. She really likes DB. I'm assuming that Asa's picture was posted on Cadia's site? Did Sawtelle show up? I was hoping you two would connect and he would look at the H.A.A and then decide to donate his DB collection there as I will.....tj
