now my stuff is here am dressing proper - scruffy jeans, BI ferry timetable t-shirt and Mariners cap. was in elevator (lift, to me) this morn and it stopped at 2ne floor and in bounded fit cove in jogging gear. we exchanged curt greets and continued in silence, til he observed, "say, that's a mariner cap. you ever *been* to seattle?" i nodded."Spent a few months there." "cool, we should get together. I'm from Portland, ya know? Oregon?" I nod.
"A little south, as i recall"
Really! a few yards down the road and people claim some acquaintance.
