Dead Dads

My sweetie's dad died this week. He was 99 years old. What makes a good life? We are quite bad at death and dying in the U.S.A.

My dad made his transition to the other side last year. I am still amazed that I can't see him or speak with him. My dad died even though we all tried to keep him alive, with drugs, food, and whatever we could conjure. I still miss the guy.

A father's gift is complicated...How to be a man, a husband, a father. In some cases, how not to be, but the gift is the same. It's what they do or don't do that molds us.

Rest in peace, dear dads.

Prefab Building

I read about this in a Seattle magazine, the architect Ryan Grey Smith and his prefab sheds. Check this out. They look really fine and could be a great asset to anyone's casa.

Looking at Staged Real Estate

I looked at 7 condos downtown Seattle the other day. The first one I saw was incredibly beautiful. Why? Because the owner had really gorgeous funiture, and art, and when you walked in, it smelled nice, like some kind of exotic floral arrangement. There was no floral arrangement. Don't get me wrong. It did NOT smell like the artificial air fresheners that make me want to wash up, and blow my nose after viewing a house. Uck! You know what I mean, Glade would be one company that makes them. These are so gross. Uck. Another I looked at had something like a glade plug in freshener. It was a fine place, with no furniture, and a bad, bad, bad smell. Where would you rather live?

It's a rainy day in Seattle...weather forecast....and I thought of an amazing drawing I saw in a magazine that I cannot find!!!

It was a view through a winshield, water drops reflecting the tailights of the car in front.

Sister says it's easy to paint water. Hmmmmm

Who's ever heard of Trulia? Here we go, with listings posted on it, as of a couple of days ago... I s'pose someone might just find the home of their dreams online, and that could be where they find it. Who knows. The Seattle PI says this:
