Today we will join the a happy family during their visit to the observation deck of the Space Needle - the iconic tower built for Seattle's World's Fair. I call them "The Neat Family", because goshdarnit, they are pretty neat!
There's Bob, the patriarch; he's a VP at Nabisco, and is mighty proud of his four kids. Let's meet the two lovely daughters, Monica and Krista (Krista's rockin' that Peter Pan collar!), and two sons - Mark and young Sam (nicknamed "Scoot") - they are rascals. They all know how important it is to make a good first impression, and that means they always have clean, pressed clothing, combed hair, and never ever wear dungarees.They also know the importance of being polite to your elders. Say "Sir" and "Ma'am", "please" and "thank you". I think we could all learn a thing or two from The Neat Family.
Note how the family dressed to not only coordinate with each other, but to match the colors of the tower. Now that's neat!
There were only two photos from the Century 21 Expo, and this one was taken over in the amusement zone - the Gay Way. The little car ride is typical of the sort found at many a carnival or local fair, but I am not sure what purpose is served by the orange supports (that don't support anything?), or all of that other frippery. Maybe the thinking is that kids will especially love driving through a construction zone without proper restraints.
