First Boy of B.A.B.B., Gary

Oh Internet. You have shown me so many wonderful things. Things like Winnebago Man, the ginger hell bent on letting the world know that he has a soul (for the record, I believe him) and of course, there is Mr. Gary Edward Rith.

I was introduced to Gary after he did a post on my friend Becky. I saw his pottery with all the cute little critters. I commented on his blog. He commented on mine. After that we became facebook friends, then we started chatting. We became fast friends. Now when I have a problem I send him a message and he either helps me solve it or makes me laugh by cursing my troubles with me.

He is married to the world’s prettiest ninja. Her name is Maude and she will karate chop your ass if you try to take her cookies. I have spoken to both of them on the phone and, just as I suspected, the woman is sharp as a tack.

Gary is the pied piper of the pottery/art world. Who wouldn't want to be around him? Seems many people make a pilgrimage to his purple house. You just get sucked into his world of fun and want to be a part of it. It's a wonderful world to be a part of.

We have decided to gather a group of non-borings and form a sort of gang. We’re like the Bloods, Crips or the Latin Kings with a few less guns. (Just kidding. No way are we like the Latin Kings.) We are B.A.B.B.
This video here pretty much sums us up.

Done watching? Well wipe away those tears and go check out Gary. I could tell you more, but there are some things you need to experience for yourself.

If you don't believe me here are some more Gary testimonials.

Here's what another B.A.B.B. Lizzie has to say:
Gary: he's like Dr. Dolittle meets Joey Ramone, as written by Dr. Seuss. I read his blog every morning while drinking my elephant mug full of coffee. Occasionally he makes me spit my coffee when I laugh at his crazy antics. His pots are super fun, and best of all, through all of the silly antics, and robot/animal pots, one thing shines through to me most of all, his absolute devotion to his beautiful wife, and thier fuzzy kids.
He's my kind of people!

And here is what B.A.B.B. Becky has to say:
Last year, I got a new computer and started reading blogs. I semi-stalked Gary's blog for a while... reading the blog but never commenting because I was chicken. Finally I realized that Gary is a cool guy, so very laid back, and he wouldn't mind if I commented, right? Heck no, he loves comments on his blog! After we started chatting, I really realized what a great guy he is, not just to his blog friends, but his wife, his critters, his Chapterhouse friends too. On top of all that, he's a fantastically smart potter, who graciously takes the time to help me with all my pottery problems. Thanks Gary, you rock! :)

So there you have it. Gary!
