Happy Independence Day, July 4, 2006

Last night Rudy came over to watch the fire works from my apartment. From my apartment we could see the Seattle Center’s, Gas Works Park’s, Bellevue’s, Madina’s and Kirkland’s firework display all at the same time. It was wild and very very colorful. The sky was lit up like a Xmas tree with the 5 different displays and the best part about it was it was free :P.
 
But before all the displays Rudy and I just hung out here while I Appreciated some Spacers and he played PS2. We chatted up a storm about a whole lotta nada but a few good things here and there. Since neither of us had s*** to do it was just right. His gf is New York right now, she watched the New York display from a party on a roof top in Brooklyn, trying out for some commercials. She gets back on Sunday and Rudy and I are really rooting for her. It would be so cool to know another person from TV. I know a weather guy on our local station, that is pretty sweet.
 
More about the 4th…hmmmm…I finally read the Declaration of Indpendence from start to finish. What a great document and its no surprise that it has been called one of the most important documents is human history. It is truely and art work but the verbage is a tad difficult to read. Totally different than the type of English I grew up on. And the all "S" look like a cursive "f". It took me a bit to figure that out.
 
I re added my Patriotic Photo Albumn but I am sorry to say that I have placed any new ones in for some time. There are some specatcular images floating around the net of the United States and for s***s and giggles here are some search terms that produce some good ones

If I could be any animal it would be a Bald Eagle. They kick ass, heck they would kick my ass. Standing roughly 4 feet tall with a 6 foot wings space and tallons that 4 inches long they virtually have no predators, unless you count man.

It would be so cool to be able to fly around and to look so noble doing it. I have see a lot of them in wild but one time stand out more than another others. I was 16 and was walking in the mountains on the Eastern slope of the Cascades when all of a sudden here she came. Flying through the valley about 25 feet from me she came soaring by in graceful flight. It was just amazing and it was totally one of those times where you are rooted in place.

I couldnt move, just watch. A perfect experience and one I will cherish for the rest of my life.

  7. Hi, Happy Spaces Appreciation,
    Yes I do remember us visiting each other, must be long ago now but I\’m glad to be back here seeing you too.
    Yes I made the tag at the top of my space, I didn\’t paint the actual fairy and moon, this I found in a graphics site, it was not so pretty, was purple colors, I changed it to match my space and and then added my own designs to it, as most do with tags I guess. 
    So oh my god this gemini horoscope is freaking me out! I never read them, but tonight I just read this and its exactly what was happening in my life today, I was telling myself i need to make an important final decsion about someone and them stick to it and then later I was telling someone I don\’t feel I\’m capable of making a real longterm commitment right now. Hmm facing the music could get tough, wish me luck;-)

     
    Happy 4th of July too, hope you had a great time celebrating and hope to catch up with you again soon.

  14. Hi Toby,
    What a great blog.Bald eagles are the best you are right. Here in Canada they are a protected species and no one is allowed to hunt or kill them. We have 2 of them in the area where we camp and I love seeing them every year. I just came in for space\’s appreciation week. Here\’s a little gift for you. Hope you like it.
