Picasso – Picasso – Picasso
Once in the life time exhibit to Seattle. How could I resist ? A quick message on facebook and my plans are in motion. Sure, I knew Jeanne would be jealous if I told her. So I did. And she just said she didn’t care, she was going to search Utila for Robinson Crusoe . ( When someone is 10,000 miles away they have to concoct big stories to make up for not being where they really want to be )
Back to Seattle. Gaylene was the first and then Laurie and we were ready. We were pretty excited and so were 100’s of other people at SAM. ( Seattle Art Museum ) When you enter, there is a magnificent display of cars, hanging from the ceiling and lights shooting out like sparklers. There are some very amazing displays. I would tell you about them, but if you go on the first Thursday of each month, you get free entry. So you should try to go yourself.
It is the special exhibits that have a price, on every day. Picasso is leaving. So I will tell you about it. Lots of pictures. Very colorful.
The best part? I can say that I went to the Picasso Exhibit!
Test? Do you know when he died? Do you know if he got married? How many times? ( that is a tricky one ) Had kids?
Well, I took some photos – not of the exhibit, that is not permitted. We ran into my cousin and his wife. You might think that photo is of Picasso, but Fred is actually much better looking than Pablo, despite the poor quality photo.

The “M” word . You probably know what I am talking about – unless maybe you are under 40. Well, that is what happened for me today. I go to the Evergreen hospital since they are the closest place for me. And because they have a great gift and coffee shop. I figure, when I get out of there, I deserve a treat. One year I found some very fun shoes. Another year I bought a scarf for me and a mug for my sister. And I always have coffee and biscotti.
You usually have a 20 to 30 minute wait, so I brought along a hemming project. ( I came home Sunday and looked in the mirror and said “that dress is too long”. No, I don’t have cute legs, but ankle length is so last year – last century!) There was a video playing in the waiting room. The Sound of Music. Who knew I would be sewing along with “so a needle pulling thread” . Well, it was at least 30 minutes and my hem that must be at least two yards around, is done! (actually 90 inches )
Well, for some reason, I could not find anything in the gift shop. Cork clogs? No thank you. And I brought a piece of Nita’s banana bread with me – it was great! So my treats came later.
An orchid at Trader Joe’s, a musical Charlie Brown Christmas ornament at Bartell’s, and a PBP at the DQ.
Not a bad morning after all.
