Elvis Show - Danny Vernon 03/25/11
By Barbara Lawrence
I was downstairs by 9:30 this morning and Darlene then called a cab to come pick us up to take us to the Senior Center to see "Elvis", Danny Vernon. We were there by 9:45 and waited then for Heidi (my hairdresser) and her mother. We were served box lunches at noon provided by Stafford Suites - an assisted living home next to the Senior Center.

Sunday Drive 03/25/11
By John Schmit
Last Sunday was just too nice to stay home. We picked up Mom and headed to Mount Vernon to see what was up. There were several daffodil fields in bloom and we even found some crocus'. The big surprise were the geese. They were fun to watch. There was a good wind blowing and as they took off, they'd be moving forward very slowly. We saw a few other animals too! That's Mt. Baker in the distance, with about 250 inches of snow depth on it at the ski resorts.

Shawn Kemp 03/18/11
By Allen Schmit
Something unusual happened today. One of our Seattle Super Sonic's (retired) Shawn Kemp, came in for an oil change today. He drives a black Cadillac Escalade, that we did an oil change and some other things to. We do get some celebrities of sorts in our shop now and again but to my other assistant manager, Justin (left in the pic), Shawn was a personal favorite and was embarrassed talking to him so I did it for him. Shawn was very friendly and agreed to a personal picture for us.

Quilt Guild 03/07/11
By Susie Devries
Here is a picture of a quilt I made. I took it to Joplin with me so my sister who is a wonderful quilter and could show me how to put the binding on it. She said I had to show her friends at the Guild. I said OK, but had NO idea I'd have to be up front and talking about my quilt! I chose it cause it was pretty. It was a Block of the Month from Joann's. The center block and the basket blocks are applique and I had no clue how to do that, so I just did the best I could. Used stitch witchery to secure the pieces and then zig zag around the edges.

Copper 03/05/11
By Susie Devries
Here are some pictures of Copper. Copper is a Ball Python, currently about 20" long and will eventually grow to about 48". Copper will live 20-30 years in captivity. Copper was one of Autumn's birthday presents. She simply loves that little guy. He/she, (we don't know yet) is very docile and easy to hold. Autumn is quick to tell you, do not put him on your neck or by your face, he can constrict and that would not be good!! That little girl doesn't seem to be afraid of anything!!!
