this and that

Last night was the final show of CINDERELLA, and I finished my job at the playhouse, went down to the Ferry Landing to unwind and watch the Sunday Parade.

THe first boat had already gone by, but there were two more in the passage, so While I was waiting for them to come by, I watched the seagulls and shared a bag of Tim's Potato Chips with them.

There were a multitude of young seagulls, and a few of the adults hanging around. The babies were begging as all babies do, and I noticed that one particular Male Adult was just standing on the picnic table out of the way of the young ones. He would occaisionally hop over to the edge and back. Seagulls generally do not hop but waddle, so I looked closer, and this guy obviously was almost dinner for either a seal a sea Lion or an Orca. He was doing quite well though, and I tossed him a chip where the others did not see.

This is one of the castles I made for the Princess Tea center pieces. THey were a BITCH to make, and Judy and I spent hours trying to figure out the non-verbal directions given. JEEZ!!! They were cute though.

Now on to CHICAGO!

They look great. Chicago sounds like fun to do too.

You never stop.

I bet that seagull dines out on having one leg every half hour.

That gull looks like the one foot fella I was watching last weekend. He was perched on top of the dock pilings at Mukilteo, and we were on the ferry ready for our return to the island.

Keewee, must be lots of lucky seagulls out there!

What a sweet thing you did for the disabled seagull! The castle is great, you're very talented!
