Pat's View: “Night Visitors”

by Pat Cashman

Some years ago, the doorbell rang. It was nighttime, so I did a quick glance at the calendar to make sure it wasn’t Halloween. It wasn’t.

At the door, were two girls in their late teens. “What can I do for you?” I asked.

One of the two spoke in a vaguely Israeli accent. “We are students going to art school in Jerusalem---and we are selling some paintings we’ve done to make money so we can return to school next semester.”
If they were looking for a sucker, they’d come to the right place.

“Come on in, “I said, in vintage rube fashion. “Let’s see what you’ve got.”
My wife started rolling her eyes like a pair of roulette wheels.

“This is a scam,” she whispered to me. I whispered back, “Yea. That’s what you said about the guy who sold me the boat.” She whispered even louder, “You mean the boat that sank the next day?”

So using my canniest resolve, I wound up buying only one painting from the “students.” I bargained hard---and got it for a mere forty dollars.

Design a button for the 2015 Hi-Yu Festival

To all artists, designers and readers alike bring your ideas for a button design to be featured in the 2015 Hi-Yu Festival to the Hi-Yu meeting at the Admiral Congregational Church at 4320 S.W. Hill St. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. on Feb.2.
The theme this year is “Sound Respect”, with a focus on the history and individuality of the Puget Sound. A float designed around this theme for this year's festival features ferry boats, orca whales, salmon, streams, the Olympic Mountains, and numerous other iconography only found in this region.
The design should be drawn and colored within a button sized circle (2” across the center of a round button). A graphic designer will make the necessary adjustments to the selected design before printing.
The Hi-Yu festival is an annual event held in the West Seattle area throughout July. There are dozens of events kicking off with the Seattle Seafair Pirates landing on Alki Beach and culminating with the Seafair Torchlight Parade. In Chinook the term Hi-Yu means “much, plenty, abundance” and the festival has been a West Seattle staple since 1934.
