friday!vacation!

i really dislike this particular piece of public art. council allowed this big ugly box of a hotel to be built smack dab at the busiest intersection and somehow it was supposed to be better b/c of this sculpture. never mind that the art does nothing to improve the skyline, or the view of the other 3 sides of the building.

anyway- that's my editorial comment for the day. i am glad that i live in a city that promotes public art, tho, and most of it is good, i just don't like this.






















anyway- sushi for gno! happy fish! (well, the fish may not have been, but we sure were!) it was sort of a challenge getting good rum with our sushi- it being talk like a pirate day & all- but the waitress rose to the occasion & went to the bar next door for us. we drank them out of appleton estate (one cocktail) and cockburn's (3 cocktails). someone didn't send the note about tlap day, evidently.....

i was going through photos for ideas and since i'm on this bird kick remembered these eagle shots from when we went to targhee this spring. there's something in here about junk and america, i'm sure....i loved the red bailing twine and the gray sky and the eagle and the phone lines and junk....



i have some sandhill crane photos, and assorted bird on a wire shots i could play with as well......

tomorrow, poop scoop 10-2, then an open house at steve's boss' place about an hour away, then maybe a snowmobile movie..... this is vacation? but nothing planned for sunday (except getting ready for class monday) i guess that's when vacation starts!

Oh, Man! Happy Fish...!?? How I miss those GNO Fridays. And on TLAP Day, too. I'm crying in my cocktail... but maybe we can make up for it next weekend?? Woohoo! :)

And BTW, I always hated that building, too.... ARRRRRRRR.....!
