Red No.5

Red No. 5

I do my best thinking while I sleep it seems because I frequently wake with an idea.  It happened again last night.  I was thinking about printing vintage photos that are not burned and burning them. It would not be an exact science and I might have problems putting out the fire and controlling it all. Then I remembered that I could wet the portion that I do not want to burn and burn off part of the image for use.  I will have to try it on a better weather day as I need to be outside for this task.  There is still some snow here and that would be a great extinguisher if needed.

Yesterday I left off telling you about the Bette Oceanview Diner.  I neglected to mention that my waitress could have been Michele Obama's sister.  Same face, shoulders, hair.  I told her so and she said she gets that a lot.  That led to a discussion on the politics of the day.  So sad to not have President Obama in office any longer.

Right after eating breakfast Monday at thiat diner I found a Japanese paper store on Fourth Street in Berkeley that I highly recommend.  It is called Miki's Paper.  OMG!  I did a hurried shopping so I could get off to CODEX, but I did some series damage to the wallet at this store.  I found some Thai papers that resemble lace.  They are absolutely wonderful.  Now to figure out how to use them.

Here is the link to Miki's.... http://www.mikispaper.com/     Don't miss this store if you are in Berkeley.  They do an online business, too.
