We had fun in her kitchen mirror.
Trying to get both our faces into the picture.We had homemade raspberry rhubarb crisp and store-bought key lime pie for lunch...can't do that every day, but it sure tasted good!
In the afternoon I went to the University of Washington and sat in on a Modern Greek class. It is intensive Greek, and while I am not a student in the class, I am expected to participate when I visit. My Greek is very rusty, as I haven't exercised it much since 1983 (my last trip to Greece) but I tried to do my best. The class was about an elephant named Mitsos who, having flown to Greece from Africa with his mistress, was too big to fit into a taxi to go to the hotel.

After class I had time to kill before my board meeting for the Seattle Book Arts Guild, so I wandered around campus taking pictures.
First, I went into Allen Library and took pictures of the installation, "Raven Brings Light to the House of Stories." This tells the story of Raven doing this, and there is a book, and there are various nooks around the library that have Ravens installed in them. This is part of the main installation in the library lobby:
And this is the Book:
There was a descriptive sign on the Mezzanine:
Then I went on to grab a snack for dinner in Suzzalo Library.

|This baseball player is one of the sports gargoyles|
|This commemorates the Navy|
|This is Arithmetic.|
The gargoyles have always amused and fascinated me. I used to look at them every time I passed the building.
Nest, I wandered over toward the library where the board meeting was to be held, and saw a sign advertising the anthropological museum on campus.

Here are a few of the letters, close up:
These signs are made of enameled metal,
and there were pictures on both sides. I particularly enjoyed the winged Mammoth.
So I photographed him again without the wings.
It got a bit dark to take more pictures, so I went into the library to wait. When the other board members arrived, we held our meeting. It lasted about two hours, but we got a lot done, so it was time well spent.
