Today’s theme is “coffee”.

While waiting for a shop to open in my suburb, I stopped in at a new-ish local coffee shop, Boon Boona.  It’s East African.   I was glad to see it so full on a weekday morning.

I’ve given sketching with a ball point pen the old college try.  I don’t like it.  So I decided to use pencil.  It’s a Faber-Castell B I got in Germany… it has a fancy cap that includes a sharpener. This is a Stillman & Birn pocket Epsilon.

After my errand, I drove on to the Museum of Flight for a Member’s event: “Coffee with the Curator.”  They had scheduled it into a large room and it was nearly full! Perhaps because this was our first opportunity to meet the new curator, Matthew Burchette.   This issue of the Museum’s magazine, Aloft, has an article about him.  The topics included discussion of the planned “refresh” of the World War II gallery in the Personal Courage Wing to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII this year.  At this event there were also WWII artifacts on display from the archives.

And since it would have been my 4th cup this morning, I didn’t have any coffee with the Curator!

    Your drawing of the “curator” at the museum reminds me of Arlo Guthrie. Does he look like him or is it just your drawing??
