Labor Day Showers

School children in the public system here in Seattle return to classes on Wednesday. This being the three day Labor Day holiday weekend, there are many sales luring parents into the shops for last minute items. I came across these rain boots in a display window at Retroactive Kids., which recently moved from West Seattle to the Columbia City neighborhood. If you look closely at the dots on the red pair atop the vintage Holly Hobby lunch box, you'll see little monkey sculls and cross bones. Ah, postmodern childhood. Meanwhile, Bumbershoot, the amazing 3 day music and arts festival, is luring thousands of all ages to Seattle Center for its last day, and they might need these, as showers are expected.

Here we go into Indian Summer. . .I hope! Happy Monday, and restful Labor Day to folks in the US.

Is that wrong that I could see myself wearing the red ones? So dangerous! ;)
