Well, spring has come and gone. It was two days long. Yesterday was almost too warm, and so, deluded, I dressed in my Spring Frock. However, today there is a chill wind, so I froze in my April attire. After my monthly lunch with my friend Eileen, I walked to Pike Place Market to do some seasonal shopping, i.e., assisting the Osterhäsin in her preparations. On the way, I met some interesting folk. This adorable grey person is named Blossom. She was so soft and sweet, and reminded me that an Irish wolfhound would fit nicely into my family. I’m sure Margaret would like a big sister. While walking about the Market, I kept hearing a rooster, but I thought it must be a mechanical creature
advertising something. Not so. It was real, and it had a wife. The Pike Place musicians were undeterred by the blustery weather, and were in fine form. This group is my favorite. They sing Gospel music and perform in front of the original Starbucks, which you can see a peek of behind them. You can hear them here, but they sound much better in person. In fact, they sound fabulous, and anyone listening to them cannot help but be a little happier.
