Phyllis and Josh have a cool old fence in their new backyard.
Nice built-in seating.
I also really like this, oh what is it called -- the decoration at the top of a wall.
This company should add a parenthetical to their registered trademark "Comfort Where You Want It":
(ON YOUR ASS)
We text-message another friend who lives up here in the north end to see what he's up to. He writes back and says he's searching for his favorite edition of the Federalist Papers. But when we arrive at his house, we find evidence to suggest he'd actually been sitting on the couch watching "What Not to Wear."
Update: This party ended up being featured in this week's Stranger:
Phyllis Fletcher's housewarming party Saturday, August 18, had a sad subtext. When the KUOW reporter's colleagues gathered in her new Phinney Ridge home, most of the conversation was focused on the news that KUOW's longtime on-air host Ken Vincent quit on Friday afternoon after a heated argument with KUOW Program Director Jeff Hansen.
I briefly talked to Ken Vincent by the keg. I recognized his voice and asked him if he was a radio dude. In a not particularly nice way, he said something like "Not anymore." I couldn't figure this out because I knew for a fact that I recognized him from KUOW, so I just let it drop. But now I know why he didn't seem too happy to talk about his work at the station. I'm sad he left -- I liked him.
