This year I wasn’t the only one unhappy around Rachel The Pig. However it was just as hard as last year to get my picture taken by this famous Seattle landmark located right by the World Famous Pike Place Fish Market. Many times you will see this exact location on television. But for some reason Rachel The Pig never seems to be in the picture. What is interest about this years photo other than the pouty girl on the right. Is that the photo was taken on Sunday. I’d had always heard that this day was a slower one for the Pike Place Market. I had hoped to avoid some of the aggravating crowds. No such luck – I had to fight just to get a few shots taken by Rachel The Pig. I also missed the yearly stare from the well known guy at the World Famous Pike Place Fish Market. Every year he gives me the look of what are you doing. I guess he takes Sunday off. Cheryl got to see him though when she went to the market on her own when I was attending the Gnomedex conference.
