Rrrrrrrrr, Rrrrrrrrr.

It’s hydro season again. Sadly, the sport ain’t quite what it used to be. The races, which used to draw 250,000 people to the shores of Lake Washington, is having difficulties finding a footing in this age of 2,345 cable channels and social media. It used to be huge in Seattle. Long before there were […]

A Really Bitchin’ Kitchen.

I was trying to help my son with life this past week. Over the years, I’ve learned a lot of stuff, so I thought I would give him some pearls of wisdom to help him take a few shortcuts. This never works out, of course. I had mentioned that he had better bone up on […]

The Principal’s Office.

Posted by admin on November 30, 2015 in Growing Up |

A new hotel and bar opened in Seattle recently. Well, more accurately, it’s in Bothell. It’s in an old elementary school. You can even have a drink in the principal’s office, which fittingly has been converted into a bar. I can’t help but think that this would have made the principal’s office a much nicer […]

Those Brave, Brave Men.

I don’t know what caused them to sign up for the duty they found themselves in. Some were called to action I guess, others “volunteered.” Still others were pressed into service against their will, from the ranks of other units in service. When I was a kid, they were called to service daily, never knowing […]

I’m Alive! And It’s A Miracle.

It’s funny how governments think they have to save us from the world in which we live. I recently learned that kids under 18 can no longer tan, even if they got the permission of their parents. Yes, one day you are 17 and you can’t tan, a birthday comes and goes, and the next […]

The Devil You Say.

Many years ago, I attended Green River Community College. It was a relatively small college back then. Eventually you ran into virtually everyone enrolled there, except those stealthy trades people who never seemed to leave the Welding or Automotive Repair buildings on the far side of campus. Community college was a lot like post-high school. […]

The Wish Book.

Posted by admin on March 10, 2014 in Growing Up |

The passing of another Christmas led me down a brief path of nostalgia, the Sears Wish Book. If you’re too young to remember the Wish Book, the full color catalogue heralded the official arrival of Christmas. Yes, there was a time before the Internet when you could search by concept, brand or price and hundreds […]

Snow is a rather rare occurrence in Washington. O.K., let me correct this a bit. It snows like crazy in the mountains around here, hundreds of inches. But for the most part, the snow stays where snow should snow: the mountains. In the lower echelons of the state, snow isn’t such a common occurrence. O.K., […]

Milking It All I Could.

Posted by admin on August 5, 2013 in Growing Up |

Being back in Seattle, I am continually reminded of my past. Oh, no, not that past. Rather, I am talking about the many things I have had the chance to do in my life, many of them just one time – check things off the list and move on activities. This was certainly the case […]

Weigh Hey, Blow Your Boat Up!

Posted by admin on June 17, 2013 in Growing Up |

My life as a pirate began at the tender age of 24. But the call of the sea came many years earlier and it continues to hold me in various ways, even though I have hit the infamous double nickels age. Unlike some landlubbers I know who were called to the sea or even piracy […]
