Bocce in the Window

Marian Ferrer opened her pottery studio/shop in Dobbs Ferry a couple of years before Frank Scioscia opened his pre-riverrun bookstore. The Dobbs Ferry Bookstore was less than a block from Dobbs Ferry Pottery. The proprietors became friends.
There was a nice bocce court down the hill from both shops. Frank Scioscia was an enthusiastic player. He had been since childhood.
Marian fashioned some bocce players from clay. She gave them to Frank. They've been at riverrun ever since.
