Greg's Christmas Window

gregs_tightest

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.

The window display looks super. I bet the store has every inch of space willed with goodies.

Sorry for having taken so much time to come back here, but my last weeks were awful…

Totally agree with you on the movie, Matt Damon and the novels by Robert Ludlum. Do you remember the TV mini-series of the same books starring Jacklyn Smith?
