Taking Flight

On Saturday we took advantage of the Smithsonian's Museum Day with free passes to the Seattle Museum of Flight.

Several pictures were in the "red barn" where Boeing started, and I think it would have been a lovely place to work--all wood & light, very unlike the yucky steel & concrete & fluorescent of today.
I think Chick enjoyed people watching more than plane watching....

At one point I was near two elderly ladies who were talking about visiting a friend in another city. They were concerned about the "swarthy characters" at the bus station. Swarthy. I don't know that I've ever heard anyone use that word in a serious, normal conversation before.

Swarthy? Now that's a great word. Next time we're in Seattle we should take the the boys there. What a fun museum!

Looks fun. I love the swarthy comment. I am going to use that word today.
