Terrell came over  before we went to bed last night. He had brought us a gift from Colorado. He got us a couple of boxes of tea from the Celestial Tea Factory Tour he took. We talked for a couple of hours drinking tea of course.
Got to bed later than planned.

 

Woke up today and started into the day.  Down to the shop. Dave and I got out of there later than planned. We went up to Smoky Point to remove more tools and material from the job. Back to the shop and unloaded. We were getting ready to make the second run when we got the call they weren’t ready for us so worked away at the shop in the mean time. Repaired cords and some Hilti Guns.

Went over to Thornton Place to see “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World?

I really thought it was shite and boring. The good side of it was that it made you think about life and I did like the very end.  

Home for a small dinner and dessert.

Relaxed the evening away. 

Woke up tired I think.

Slow but they are building the characters back up again. 

Up and headed down to work. 
Dave and I head down to bring the computer parts and printers down to the Recyclers.  Then stopped into “Two Tartes Cafe” for a chat. She offered me a coffee but I had me tea from home in me hand. Then she said I could double fist it. Then went on to say I bet you were double fisted before. I liked her humor. Dave got his treats and we wandered out after the chat.  
We headed up to Smoky Point to demobilize the job. Back to the shop and unloaded everything. Then off to Graham to pick up 40 to 50 televisions that someone had thrown into our dumpster. Talked with Sean there for a while. Saw his neg car. Death mobile. We loaded the tellies into the van and headed back to the Recycling place where we started our day. Unloaded the items of unlawfulness and back to the shop we go. 

Finished out the day and headed home. 

Brenda came by and we headed down to a concert in the WaMu. Stopped in and parked at the Pyramid Brewery for dinner .http://www.pyramidbrew.com/alehouses/seattle/ Salad and a bit o pizza. Ricky showed up later on. Chatted there for a couple of hours and then headed over to the concert. 

We missed the first band. The second up was a fellow I didn’t know. “Mayer Hawthorne”  http://mayerhawthorne.com/#!all  This fellow was actually really good. Had a good sound and got the audience into it. 

Duff was in the crowd so I went over for a wee chat.

Talked about being Irish and proud, the meeting at CBGB’s and being there with his kids. His health and a bit more blah blah blah. 

Next up was the band we were there to see. “Foster The People” http://www.fosterthepeople.com/us/home

They came out and put the heart thumping sound into the audience for the entire show. Got the crowd going as well. A quick encore after one break and then ended up the night with their bigger song. Pumped Up Kicks. 

Headed home and to bed late. 

 

Woke up and rested for an hour on the bed. 

Up and ready. Off to the office.

Everything seemed to be working well and ache free so I jumped out of bed and all was grand shur. 

Had the breakfast after a while. Lazed around for another while. Natasha took the chairs for the parade downtown and I relaxed some more. Then I got ready and headed out to go downtown myself. I took off walking. I headed down Roosevelt, Eastlake and Fairview. Then over to 4th between Cedar and Vine. It was a 6.86 mile trek. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/192524144
