My New Baby 08/30/10
By Susie Devries
As most of you know I've been driving a 1987 Dodge Ram Charger. It has 227,000+ mile on it. Been a good truck. But it's being a pain, showing it's age etc. Over the weekend I found another truck.

The Day 08/25/10
By Barbara Lawrence
Darlene and I went grocery shopping this morning, brought the groceries home and then drove to Redondo and had 1 piece. of fish with chips. We left there (no shade to sit in) and drove to Saltwater State Park where we first sat at a table in the sun then found a table in the shade under the trees. We watched this big ship come on this side of the island and by the time we were there for a little over an hour, we were drained just from the fresh air and the water. We came home and had to walk from the back lot where I parked my car because they're supposed to power wash our parking lot.

Elvis Concert 08/20/10
By Barbara Lawrence
What a fun day I had today. The Metro Access bus ($1 each way to and from home) came at 2:30 and picked up Darlene & me to take us to Providence Mount St. Vincent - an Assisted Living and Nursing Home in West Seattle for a concert. We had to transfer buses once so that took quite a bit of time.

Gig Harbor 08/04/10
By Barbara Lawrence
Gig Harbor was a neat place but too many hills to climb - both Darlene and I had problems. We ate at a super nice restaurant right on the water called Tides Tavern, an old established place that must be number one in town. We had 11:30 reservations so Mick (driver) had time to take us on some side trips. He took us up to a view place so I could get pictures of the bridge but it was totally socked in with fog so couldn't get it. I took pictures out of the front window of the bus coming home but didn't have any idea what I got because I just held the camera out in front of me - I was in the front seat.
