There was some good news today though. Barack Obama was inaugurated for a second term. The first and second families looked good. I'm still waiting to see the ball gown.
It looks like Seattle will be getting an NBA team back - good news for us is bad news for Sacramento.
I had lunch with old teacher friends - yes, both old as in long time friends, and old and in "old", like me.
Tom and I spent the rest of the afternoon looking at houses for sale with Jill and Corey and the kids. The house they were hoping for has been turned over to another bank, and the short sale stuff may have to start all over again. Not good news. Very discouraging.
And now the other part of our Saturday outing - lots of photos of a great place to get relief from the fog, the Volunteer Park Conservatory.
Outside the glass house, we strolled around the wonderful old park.
There was no view of the space Needle through the sculpture over the reservoir today.
The Museum of Asian Art.
The water tower.
Stately homes surround the park.
Wonderful old trees fill the park.
Tom is always on the lookout for cones off exotic trees.
Looks like we'll keep the fog until the rain comes on Wednesday. I may need to go sit in the green house. :)
