Dasher Takes A Dip.



A few Sundays ago, on unseasonable warm day, we walked with Dasher in Bellevue Park where we let him cool off in the man made pond.

Griffey Statue Vandalized

The Ken Griffey, Jr statue at Safeco Field was vandalized yesterday. The bat was snapped off in the evening hours.
 Police were able to take a suspect into custody and recover the bat.  The vandal somehow took the bat from the statue, leaving the rest in tact. 
Reports say that Mariner officials are in touch with the artist to find out if a seamless repair can be made. 
The statue honors the Mariner Hall Of Fame centerfielder, who is credited to saving baseball in Seattle and is considered one of the best to ever play the game.

My Dad From 1986.




Another picture from B. Barer And Sons.  My dad poses near where the oxygen filling plant would soon be built.  This picture was taped in my dad's office.  A clean up in his and Jean's condo recovered many historical artifacts. Jean, whom he married in 2000, died earlier this year.  My Dad passed way in 2016.

Mount Rainier On A Beautiful Sunday

The Mountain was out and so were we on a perfect fall Sunday.  The Seahawks had a bye so Deb, Dasher and I  took the opportunity to go out and enjoy an autumn drive. 
We went to the pumpkin patch at Thomasson Family Farm  between Black Diamond and Enumclaw.  On the way out, we took the picture above.   We had lunch at Mint Ale House in charming downtown Enumclaw, then finished the drive with a stop at Rock Ridge Market.

Cougar AD Leaves For Nebraska

When it rains, it pours.  After being upset last Friday by the California Bears, the Washington State Cougars have learned the Bill Moos, who has been Athletic Director since 2010 is leaving the program to go to Nebraska.   Moos, formerly the athletic director at University Of Oregon, came out of retirement to guide the sports program at WSU, his alma matter.  He brought Mike Leach to coach Football and Ernie Kent to coach the men's basketball program.  The Cougar football team is 6-1.
