Just got back from a weekend with my old buddy, Joe, and his wife, Vic, over in Olympia, Washington. We were good buddies in high school and college, then for reasons no one can well identify, we drifted askance for the last twenty-four years. It was an absolute joy for my wife and I to spend the weekend with him and his wife and one of his daughters, Holly, and her family.
I created this sketch early one morning from Joe's Pier on the lake where he and his wife enjoy the commodities of a lake cabin. It sits straight across the road from their house.
"Taking Five" is more a reference to our traveling up to Seattle on Friday night to a Dave Brubeck concert than the usual and ordinary ref to just chillin' for a few minutes. If that has to be explained, you may be too young to appreciate most of my comments on this blog...just kidding.
