Amy and I are huge fans of the comedienne Kathy Griffith from Bravo's "My Life on the D-List" and "Suddenly Susan" fame. So we traveled by train to Portland on Saturday and in less than 24 hours, we managed to eat like queens at Pazzo's, attend her comedy show, ride the hotel elevator with the coach of the Denver Nuggets and have Sunday brunch with Mother. Here is Kathy during her show. We were up in the balcony so the optical zoom is maxed out. Lots of dish on celebrity encounters and insights on current events.
I must tell you that traveling by train is not too bad. The Tacoma/Olympia bit is amazingly picturesque. I do recommend it. It does take four hours to get to Portland but you can avoid all traffic, stand in no security lines, drink alcohol (if that's your bag), walk around, use the bathroom all you want and keep young children entertained. What's not to like?
So this is Amy & I at dinner. Lots of girl talk and relaxation on our quick getaway down south. Great to see Mom too, albeit brief. Good times.
