I’m volenteering today at the old-timers picnic up at the zoo. I’m looking forward to it and hope that the weather holds out for us. It seems a bit overcast this morning and chilly. I’ll be helping out with setup and I think serving although I could be wrong about the latter. Yesterday I hung out for a bit at the barbeque it was really fun. There were some folks there that I got to know that seem real nice. One of them gave M and I a ride to Frites and then home. If you live in the Seattle area you must must must try Frites. Its a belgian fry place. The only thing he sells is frys however, he has somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 kinds of sauces. M and I will go there usually after the Cuff Sunday barbeque, fun. Wednesday this week I’m heading to see the Artistocrats with the Seattle Movie Bears and a friend of mine. Tuesday and Thursday I’m teaching several groupwise classes. I’m looking forward to it. I’m still really tired from the weekend, I did a lot and perhaps the weather changing. It is becoming much more fall like, no leaves yet of course but you can tell the trees are begining to look less shiny green and more dull lustless green. The weather has become distinctly cooler in the eveninig and the salty smell of the Puget Sound reaches my bedroom almost every morning now. its time for me to get showered and on my way I think. One last one, M and I watched 6 feet under last night, it was difficult to watch, Nates dead of course, and his sister went to visit his grave. She was having this whole conversation which almost completely mirrored the one I had with my mom when I finally got to visit her grave a few years ago. It was a rough and painful to have those feelings resurface. How can you have such strong feelings for someone you barely knew? That has always been one of the most difficult things about my mothers death. I was only 3, she was 24. Her death turned my small world upside down and I guess maybe thats were the feelings come from. It was a good episode taken all together.
