Ho, Ho, Ho

Seen on Pike St.  I'm out of the hospital but I'm slow in getting started.  Its weird I don't really know what to do with myself.  I went out for Thanksgiving dinner the other day at McCormick and Schmitt on Lake Union.  The best food ever!  I had sole stuffed with dungeness crab, fingerling potatoes and asparagus.  It was my first time having dingeness crab, I want to have it again.   It was also my first vodka cocktail in a long time too.  I wasn't paying so when the server asked what shelf  I wanted my vodka from I almost said top shelf.  The middle is still smooth as silk.  The restaurant has been remodeled and its beautiful.  I want one of the wood lamps from upstairs.

Remember this building?

Remember this place?  Its now closed, its been closed for awhile.  I miss the funny words they had written every week on their marquee.  Indiana Jones and the temple of poon or 28 quarters later love comes in spurts those were a couple of my favorites.

Can you imagine being a janitor here?  I would ware a hazmat suit from the CDC before I enter one of those booths.

Out and About!

I went out looking for Christmas at Swanson's Nursery.  I love the nursery, we pet the camel, saw the reindeer and miniature donkey.  Then we looked at the model trains and the Christmas decorations for sale.  We also looked at the holiday plants, I love amaryllis and the different colors of poinsettias.
The camel is named curly and he is 5 years old.  His nose is incredibly soft and he loves people to scratch it.  Feeding times are 10 and 4.
It felt nice to get out.  We finished our outing with coffee and cookies at the nurseries cafe.  There is a coy pond in the cafe, the fish are so fat nobody is allowed to feed them.  I gave one fish a piece of peanut butter cookie.  I felt cold wet fish lips as it ate cookie from my hand.

From summer to winter

I'm home from the hospital, got home yesterday.  I was there for only two months but I was in for a shock when I got out.  There is Christmas shit everywhere, I haven't even eaten my turkey yet.  And prices in the grocery store have gone up twenty percent.  If it weren't for an EBT card I'd be eating Top Ramen and cheap mac n cheese, I can't live without my Kraft.  1183 passed, I wanted to vote no on that initiative.  People do not need more access to alcohol!  And a big chunk of the Via Duct came down.  I'm scared shitless at the thought of travelling in a tunnel to get to West Seattle. What if there is an accident or an earth quake, how do you get out?

that was off in the distance
and a sign saying we will vote!

red leaves

Outside my window
orange, red, yellow
it seemed
just green.
