My block here on Capital Hill had its annual Block Party today. We block off the street and socialize for a few hours with each other. It was well attended, and of course I shocked some people on the block when I told them I have been living in my house for 11 years. (Well .. I travel a lot, and I use the back entrance, I say every time). So it was nice to make new acquaintances and renew old ones. I learned that the husband of a couple on the corner is from Australia. He survived adjusting to the Seattle weather, and they still travel to Australia regularly. He noted that Qantas hands out pyjamas to their first class and business class passengers .. which prompted me to search for it online. (It’s gray with a black Qantas kangeroo on). And I found a report from the Australian Herald Sun about a couple in first class that held up a Qantas A380 flight from Los Angeles : there were no extra-large pyjamas available for them. They got off the airplane and went out on a flight the following day. The pyjamas are designed by Akira Isogawa, one of Australia’s most prominent contemporary fashion designers. Got to have ’em!
