I am grieved to announce that on Monday night last., Peter Pugger apparently blew his brains out. It may have been depression from the loneliness he had been suffering this summer. With me working on the house instead of making pots, he hadn't been getting the attention he deserved. I failed in my attempts to revive him, attempting resuscitation by repeatedly hitting his reset button yet he showed no sign of life other than a glowing red STOP button mocking me as the vacuum pump tried to breathe life into him. I implored for his maker to intervene but the reply was that it would require the laying on of hands.. Therefore I have done basic dissection and am sending his head on a round trip to California for a full autopsy and probably a brain transplant. Your good wishes and the USPS will speed him on his way.
