Event at Perkins Coie

Joe Ruben with Funding Post asked a few of us in the early stage investing arena to talk about the start-up environment.  The event was sponsored by Perkins Coie and held at their downtown Seattle office. 

Lucinda Stewart and Bill Bryant were volleying questions frmo the audience 
and gave polar opposite answers which had the room in stitches. 

Yes even in this dire recession, we made it as fun as we 
could (what else can we do) as we shared frank stories of defeat and triumph.

Wiffling the afternoon away

We're hanging at the Schembre's house (fairly frequent occurrence) and got the wiffle bat out.

Bases are loaded and Lucy hit's one out of the park.  

Simone on 2nd base and pitcher Drew is ready with a "you can hit it" ball.

I'm ready Drew! - Naomi

Did I hit it? - Naomi

Josie Schembre channeling Josephine Baker & Isadora Duncan

When my daughter Naomi refers to Josie, she says, "My good friend Josie" never just "Josie".  It goes like this. "My good friend Josie likes to build things just like I like to build things" or "Mom did you know that my good friend Josie likes to dance?" Does she ever!

 Josie is pictured here and below doing a dance of "Spring."

It is Easter and we are at the Schembres' house searching for eggs in their lovely backyard.
