    July 1  Saw “Napoli, Brooklyn” by Meghan Kennedy at the Laura Pels Theatre. It is based upon a real-life disaster, the surprise staging of which, is mind shattering! However, the story line has a surfeit of themes added; religious brain-washing, the effect of a bullying husband and father and lesbian freedom. None of these is fully convincing in spite of the excellent acting of the cast.

Seattle and Portland – part three

After our lunch at the Chihuly “Collections” cafe, Bonnie and Kirstyn took us on the monorail to the fish markets in downtown Seattle. We hoped to get pictures of the fish-throwing activities there (After a customer selects a fish, the fishmonger throws it Quarterback style to the fillet people at the back). There was not enough light, though, to catch the action.

Finally, Nancy invited me to visit the Printing Office where she works. I had a wonderfully nostalgic time among familiar machines of my youth and, also, was amazed at the light-years of progress made in some of the operations I remembered.

On the last morning, Bonnie drove us to the Tacoma Amtrak station and saw us off to Portland!














Many of the collected pieces were shown under the glass of the tables where we ate
