I came home from the dealership a few weeks back and pulled into the garage. She was home at last. Shiny and new. Silver with red accents. It was all I could do to wait for Chuck to get home from work so he could share in my excitement!
As soon as the weekend arrived, we took her for a seven-hour test run. Following the owner’s manual, we only opened her up part way. We were getting a feel for all the features and figuring out what each button meant on the dash.
That one test run gave us the confidence to go out again the next day and fire her up. This time, a nine-hour adventure. A few days later, we opened her up all the way. It was a feeling of exhilaration but tempered with apprehension. We were still getting to know each other after all. But all went swimmingly. The results were fantastic and there were no accidents. Woohoo!
By now, a few weeks later, we are becoming the best of friends. She is performing beautifully and we take her out almost every weekend.
CatTail Studio Arts is now the proud owner of its very own electric kiln. It is so exciting!
