Greg's Christmas Window
I like shopping in this store, Greg's, on Hawthorne at SE 37th, directly across the street from the Bagdad Theatre. I took this photo while the car was stopped at the traffic signal. Greg's sells funky, personality-filled items and cards. It's a fun place to browse, too.
You can see the marquee reflected in the store window, with "Bourne Ultimatum" at 6 p.m. That's the movie I had just been to see with the young ones, Lamont, Lindsay and Leland. Years and years ago, I read those Bourne novels, mesmerized by every word. When I heard about the first movie, that Matt Damon would play Jason Bourne, skepticism at how he'd pull it off made me curious to see the movie. Now I can't imagine anyone else in the role on the big screen.
