A Leap Year Baby

The invitation came sometime back in November. We were invited to a surprise birthday party in upstate New York for Nancy the last weekend in February. I guess being a leap year baby not only keeps one young but also brings a measure of luck. Great weather led to clear roads all the way and Nancy didn't suspect a thing. She even brought some broken pieces to trade for replacments at the Tupperware party she thought she was attending. The real party theme was 'fifties' rock and roll, appropriate for Nancy's leapyear age of 15, so hum a few oldies and take a look at some pictures. You'll see grandchildren with poodle skirts or jeans and white t-shirts, lots of pink balloons, a record hop cake and a surprised and happy Nancy in her birthday present Sabres hockey jersey, autographed by Marty Biron and his teammates.

Back to the Sixties? Or Not

So one of the kids at the Center keeps telling me I'm tripping. And I'm thinking, what the heck is he talking about? Certainly I'm not doing any sixties style tripping, no acid no drugs and never did, so I can't imagine what he means. Finally I get smart and check it out on the web at urbandictionary.com. While I'm there I also check out the words gay and wac. And when I get to the Center on Monday I'll know what the fourth and fifth graders are talking about. Maybe.

Come on Down

It's coming down fast now. Not too soon, the old road and 'erector set' bridge will be memories.

Dwell on It

Pages 36-37 of the April/May issue of Dwell capture precisely why I like the magazine so much. Top left shows the Nissan Actic Concept Car the birthchild of a coupling between Nissan and Airstream, just the thing to keep my driving the USA in an Airstream trailer retirement plan alive. On the far right is a fabulous quilt by SushmaQuilts in East Palo Alto, whose colors and patterns will inspire my planned purchase of Flor rug tiles to lay under the dining room table. And best for last at bottom right is Le Pigeonner. NB: To actually get to the right place from this link, you must search by artist (in French, tri par artiste) for Matali Crasset. I must quibble with the assertion that it's the first-ever multifamily housing for pigeons, since we Trenton Street homeowners have been sharing our roofs and ledges with the birds for years. But if it works I want one, as long as I don't have to sacrifice a parking space to put it in.
