Eva’s surprise haircut

Hudson decided to cut Eva’s hair and Eva “finished it”.


We had to take her to someone more experienced to fix it:


She thought when it was fixed it’d be long again.

Coffee + beer

Gay and I had coffee this morning with Paul Shipman, a co-founder of Red Hook Brewery, one of the first craft breweries in America. We met at Starbucks, the first business the other founder of Red Hook created.

I was reminded about one of my trips to Seattle visiting Microsoft in 1996… Before I left for the airport, I ran around Seattle looking for Red Hook’s Double Black Stout, a stout brewed with Starbucks coffee, a unique beer at the time. I found 2 bottles and carried them home on the plane (try that today!).

In other Starbucks news, we learned today why the owners of the building were so difficult to deal with during lease negotiations for our brewery months ago: they leased it to Starbucks for a huge local coffee roastery. There’s no shame losing to Starbucks.

Sounders vs Chicago

Preston’s dad got 4 tickets to the Sounders game tonight in the Seattle Bank suite and took Hudson and me. Sounders won, 2-1. Hudson and Preston spent most of the game playing with some girl.



First day of school

Havana starts 1st grade in Mrs. Belknap’s class and Hudson starts Kindergarten in Preethi’s class today. Havana jumped right in, Hudson was very shy.
