Mixing Work and Pleasure in Yuma

Hard day in the office. I tagged along on someone’s errands into Yuma, AZ and managed to turn it into a work day. while my buddy was on a conference call, I explored the Yuma Quarter Masters Headquarters. This was good for two reasons: 1) I got another history lesson on the area, and 2) I made a contact at both the Headquarters and the BLM in Yuma. Seems like a small accomplishment, but there is nothing small making contacts who have been in the area for 20 years when you have been there for a week. These are useful people to know.

We also happened upon an artist with her shop open (almost nothing is open on Monday in Yuma – we did not know that). Since it was a lazy day she showed off her kiln, talked a bit about the firing process, and showed us some pieces in process. She was even nice enough to throw something for our cameras.

Check her out on Facebook – Colorado River Pottery. Vermonters will find her work familiar. She’s lived back east!
