John Bowman was a potter who lived and worked in Boonsboro, Maryland, in the latter part of the 1800s. The Bowman family had emigrated from Germany in the late 1700s and settled in Southeastern Pennsylvania. One of the sons moved down into Washington County, Maryland. It is that son's son, John, who purchased this log home in 1868 and established Boonsboro Pottery. . . .

Let's talk hair! I just got my hair cut shorter last week because I can't stand it on my neck in this hot, humid weather. What compelled me to do it was I'd just seen a photo of myself, taken from the side, with my hair up in a bun (because of the heat) and decided I wasn't ready to look like a granny.....even though I was holding my newest grandchild. The photo also drove home the fact that I'll never look like I did in 1974 when I wore my hair the longest it's ever been, no matter how long I let my hair grow now. . . .
