A pretty varied week in these parts with two delicious sunny days as a surprise between rain storms…the Minto bike ride is delightful zooming through the falling leaves…

and, of course, there has to be coffee…

but this week there was also a surprise from the past.  When we visited the site of the old Arbor Cafe recently we wondered what ever happened to the nice booths made by local carpenter Tyko Groves…he even incised our logo into the decorative clover leaf sides…

…well, R spotted them in Clockworks coffeehouse on Liberty (formerly the Blue Pepper)…not all together in a row BUT…(here pardon the awful iPhone foto)

and then a visit from artist Rex and Diane Amos on the occasion of Rex depositing his life of journals, writings, letters, drawings in the Northwest Artists Archive at Willamette University…

…a very big moment.  The archive (under the direction of the capable archivist Mary McRobinson) will sort, index and catalog the material, and make it available for scholars of the future.  As R has discovered during his years of research, this sort of artist material often provides valuable information.

On my way to ukulele the other day I noticed this totally hilarious (though organized and “crafted”) Halloween display…it’s on Madison just east of 17th Street NE…check it out…

and don’t forget to look on the roof…
