A STAR-SPANGLED MORNING ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


It was a Star Spangled Holiday at 7th and Montana this morning as Award-Winning Vocalist-Saxophonist-Songwriter Curtis Stigers made the scene with his family. Stigers, in town from Idaho, surprised me with the news that he's been taking pictures for my blog. "I got a great one for you the other day," he said, "A woman walked by wearing a witch costume." I wasn't surprised. "Oh," I replied, trying not to burst his bubble, "I think she manages a clothing store on Montana." Moments later, as if on cue, "Barnacle Bess" -- the Local Loon who bears an unfortunate resemblance to Snow White's stepmother -- swooped-in. "What an adorable baby," she said to Curtis' wife, Amy, who was holding their nephew, Sean. "Then, again," she cackled, "I'd be adorable, too, if you held me on your lap and bounced me up and down." I hope her Magic Mirror is still under warranty ...!

Paula,better start packing your bags. Its called early morning fog or haze, since 7th and Montana is only "7" blocks plus from the beach, it appears we are still experiencing lots of June glum in July, and the fog and haze don't burn off till around noon. Basically, that is why 7th and Montana is "COOL".

That old lady "loon" is actually sharp as a tack. I've talked to her for a few minutes before. She doesn't live in the fast paced world we live in and doesn't seem to understand the concept of time. She can talk for hours about anything. But she's definitely not a loon.

On second thought, when a loon sees another loon, they just understand each other :)
