>The strangest
part of the entire episode was that so many street vendors (at Pike's Place
Market) suddenly came up with small statuettes made from the "authentic"
ash...!  Do they still sell these reminders<

Yes Jill, you can still bring home a genuine ash filled ball point pen for
those days when one writer's block needs an extra kick. I recall that the
ashfall made it clear around the globe (perhaps Seattle saw those beautiful
sunsets through ash that arrived from out of the west?). I remember it made
its mark out here too.
