We drove to Lawyer Farms near Lacey, where mom wanted to get some new plants for her yard. They sell the plants in the form of bare branches with lots of roots. You have to go by the pictures above the bins to know what you are getting. We got two branches labeled forsythia, one labeled gingko biloba, and two others I can't remember.
When we got back from the Jubilee, a performance art piece was underway in the Courtyard. It's a dancing /musical/flashmobbish retelling of "The Red Shoes." It was a lot--I mean A LOT--louder than it seems from this photo.
We found this book at Barnes and Noble and had to get it. It's about identical twins and it's co-authored by identical twins. As Dr Johnson said, it is not done well, but one is astonished to see it done at all.
