Market Messages

 Come on be happy says the Gum Wall to Seattle.

We all need a little personal space.

All you need is love.

The Gum Wall is under Pike Place Market and is a sweet smelling tourist attraction everyone should see.  Leave a message for all to see or least your DNA in a piece of bubble gum.

Seattle"s Finest on horseback for show.

Of course who could resist petting a horse, their noses are so soft.

And then we all have to check our iphones to make sure we got a good pic.

reflected light

 I love the Ferris Wheel, if it wasn't 13 dollars to go up I'd do it more often!  I have never been up at night I think the city lights would be spectacular form on top.

I can just fit in my wheelchair.

This why I think that the view from up top would be beautiful.  Every red splotch is the centre of the wheel.  All the green and blue are the arms radiating out.  I could do a big collection of photos studying reflected light.

I love Anarchy

I love Anarchy!
I think that is what that string of hearts means.
I love controlled chaos!

It was my b-day yesterday.  I went to a great restaurant called Stanfords at the North Gate Mall.  Such good food, I love a good chopped salad  Then we went a movie at Thorton Place theatres.  We saw Box Trolls,  a little too British for Americans.   I was deeply enthralled in the animation and the riot of colours.

Bixby in Seattle

Bixby is the dog in the tub,  He has ridden over 7000 miles in that tub.
His owner wanted him closer than in a trailer.  

There's a good luck chicken hanging off the back of the bike.
They are off to Portland, Oregon next.

International Creative Kids day

It was international get kids interested in something other than videos games day.  What better fun than a cardboard box.  The kids built a suspension bridge with Nessie in the background.   !20 cities around the globe participated this creative day.

The 12th kid is beating his head against his cardboard house.

 Maybe because his team lost in the 4th quarter.

Two in the Hand is Worth a Good Photo

I found this macaw in the Pike Place Garden.  The owner says the bird like the leash because she associates the leash with going outside.  Looks like she is taking herself out for a walk.

This is Phineas', and he is a working bird.  His owner taught him to do really funny tricks, like play dead and meow or bark.  If you see him around Pike Place drop a buck in his bucket.

Not Orange?

This is a yellow carrot.  Carrots in the beginning were yellow or red. According to local grower orange carrots were an American creation.  Orange cheese is also an American creation.

Nug Man

Meet Nug Man he hangs out n that park next to Pike Place.  He's got a jar of some juicy stuff and he's got some really good prices.  I go to Pike Place quite so often that people are getting really comfortable with me.  This guy almost demanded I take his picture.

Fat Bitch is Back

He's back with a new sign.  Not only does he want a fat bitch, this time he wants a really fat bitch.  What a gig, he ask for money to take his picture.  I'm creating a book about the market and he's so going in my book.

Hobby Lobby Opened....So What!

The protest over Hobby Lobby not paying for birth control was a failure.  I'm not sure it was even a protest.  There were 20 people with signs and 2 cops on bikes.  Hobby was supposed to open at 9 am on Friday, when that didn't happen everyone went home.  Hobby Opened at 3 pm with no protestors in sight.

Most of the protesters stayed around the pedestrian bridge on 130th and Aurora. These look like protestors from far away but when I zoomed in close this is what I saw.

 We love Hobby Lobby and yet you want to boycott it too?  I looked, I shopped, I bought something.  Not a bad store, A little too Christian for my taste.  What I did like about Hobby is they hired a lot of people, and starting wage was higher than the minimum.   Where the store is it used to be a Kmart and then it stayed vacant for a long time. Maybe a Christianish store will improve the feel of the neighborhood.
