Now I know the wonder and beauty of a tropical paradise. I also know that if I lived there I'd need a 55 gallon drum of Bag Balm. Talk about muggy. The water is so wonderfully warm, it's nearly like bath water. I actually went swimming in the ocean for the first time since JAWS came out. A guy at the hotel suggested we try the pool, to which I responded," I didn't come here to try the chlorine". I mean really. My favorite things were the road side fruit stands and "Shrimp Trucks" If you ever go there I highly suggest a day @ the Polynesian Cultural Center.

FACT: The slide or steel guitar was originated in the Hawaiian Islands and at some point toured and displayed in Nashville, and the rest is Country Western history. Sorry Tex.

Commisioned Art

Tuesday, October 07, 2008

A while back the DW and myself ventured to Boise Idaho for the annual "Art in the Park" with the intent to purchase an article of cool craftiness. You see instead of buying one another anniversary gifts, we agree on something we both like. I've blogged about this before but hey , that was a year ago. Anyhow we found the pot we both loved,(ceramic, not cannabis) and opted to come back for it instead of luggin' it all over the park. Well when Noelle went back to purchase our prized art, some other person of no doubt awesome taste in pottery, had come along and bought it and 4 other pots out from under us. BUMMER. But not for the potter.

The DW looked for a pot that might be cool enough to be our "Versary" art but nothing else would do. The artist/seller informed the DW that they would be at "Salmon Daze" in Issaquack in a few weeks and that they would try to make a pot matching the description of OUR pot they mistakenly sold to the guy with the fist full of cash. Well we tracked them down at "Salmon Daze" but we didn't find one like OUR pot. There were a few cool but smaller ones, so we resigned ourselves to be children of a lesser pot. But when the DW gave the pottery gal her debit card to purchase our consolation pot she joyfully exclaimed"Oh I recognize your name Mrs Mac, I called you this morning to let you know we made a pot just for you."

Talk about fortunate, the Art Angels must have been lookin' after us. It is ever so snappy, don't you think??Our first "commisioned work" Who could say it isn't lovely.
