Hellen Garriot pottery -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- My most used red book
Nuclear stress test and sonogram of my abdominal and kidney arteries.
I'll be needing a stent in my artery to the left kidney.
Congratulations to daughter, Karen!
She completed in Sunday's Houston Marathon Half Marathon race.

Last week I missed out on the homework of posting red books that we use in our homes. (Mary please this one time accept my late homework.) This is the one that I use most, The Teacher's Bible Commentary Edited by H. Franklin Paschall and Herschel H. Hobbs. It mentions every verse and chapter in the Bible, giving insight for Sunday school teachers.
It is fairly well used by a friend of mine, Sam L, who died this Fall. He had given it to me when they moved from their house to a multi-level-care facility. It is copyright in 1972. Sam was a man of love, I never heard him talk bad about anyone and whoever he was with at any time he treated as this person had the greatest value to him.
This Sun Jar, as we call it, was made by my friends wife, Helen Garriott. She had a little studio and kiln in Seabrook, Texas (link). We also have several of her Moon Jars--See picture below (link to Garriott family post).
Helen's husband was Astronaut Owen Garriott, a SkyLab astronaut. I did a lot of training with Owen for his first space mission when I was working at NASA in Houston as a Simulation and Training Engineer. He was a heads up-asking questions-fast learner.
Owen once came to deliver a speech at our Phi Beta Lambda (national college business club fraternity) state leadership conference. At that time and several years around I was the 'club' sponsor. That also involved taking students to the National Leadership Conference where they competed in competition about business subject areas with colleges all over the U.S. We took home many prizes and were always a top scoring 'club.'
The Moon Jar:
Have a terrific day. :)
That's a pretty sun jar you got there..love it! I now wonder what does the moon jar looks like. happy RT!

ps..oh mr. jim, i just love magical mystical teacher's little poem..that lady is a wonder!
The moon jar is quite interesting.
Aren't you a man of many skills and interests?
I also lie the way you set your priorities.
The worn Sunday School teacher's Bible first.
Then your daughter's achievements.
You are too modest when you talk about your past in NASA/Huston.
It must have been some exiting and memorable years.
Imagine to be a part of world history!
Also like the art you present, the moon jar in particular.
I wish you good luck with your health program. Seems you have to many blocked arteries. I've heard about stunt men, I fear you'll become the stent man. Do you become medicine to open the blocked arteries as well?
I hope so and pray for the best.
Hugs and blessings,
The sun jar and moon jar are wonderful pieces.
Your daughter is to be commended for her achievement - applause!
Prayers for your stent placement.
Have a great week Jim!
your book photo is beautifully composed
I will be thinking of you and your tests
as always Hope sends hugs to KP
Jim, I'll be praying for your health.
I absolutely LOVE your sun jar. It is beautiful.
I left a message for you at Doug's.
I love the pottery. It has a look all its own.
Will pray for you and your health problems.
