    Hi Jamie, if I knew a 10 year old interested in the subject, would it be ok if I brought them along? Right now, they have other plans, so if this sounds like a bad idea, I have other means of keeping them occupied.

      Definitely a big mark on a child's resume!

      Peter, the class is now sold out and we have a full house. Unfortunately I no longer have space for your child. I will let you know when I give this class again. See you later!

    I am very sorry that some of you can't make it. I may repeat this class in the near future and will definitely let you all know when this happens. Thank you all!

      I'd also like to see a repeat class. I have friends visiting when this class is being taught, so unfortunately I won't be able to make it.

      Me too, off on a Wine tasting trip and can not make it. But I got some concrete work I need to do and would love to see this as well.

    I cemented this on my schedule, which is usually set in stone. I'd give a concrete answer, but I'm plastered. If I think I may sandbag you, I'll mortar you a text.
