What do these people all have in common?

Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Doors, Eric Clapton, The Who, Ozzy Osbourne, and Graham. Well Graham is a great bass player but has never played with any of these bands. Though he has played bass with Linda Ronstadt’s brother Mike and cousins Bill and John. But that’s another story for another time. The common thing? Key Arena in Seattle. Site of the Washington State Exhibit during the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. Used as a concert hall, used by the Seattle Sonics, used by the Seattle University Redhawk basketball team and this year the SU 2009 commencement. Graham’s college graduation!

Graham will graduate top of his Mechanical Engineering department, Magna Cum Laude, with minors in Physics and Mathematics on June 14. That means he graduates wearing extra paraphernalia including an honors hood. He was so excited when he picked up his regalia last week that he took a cell phone picture of himself in the hood. So excuse the photo quality. We’ve been doing a major happy dance here.

I’m suffering from road lag so I didn’t pick up any knitting this weekend, not even to take a picture of the blocked and finished Maine Morning Mitts. In Noro Kureyon, you’ll just have to imagine them. I am slowly working through the blogs I read. Boy am I behind!

We got invited to a party, but since it’s this Thursday evening we have to turn down the invite. It would really be interesting to go to. Note that the suggested dress is Cocktail Formal 1940’s. I’d have to look that up.

Soooo tired. G’night!
