Another great song from Sunday's concert

Sonics Return Imminent?


 Word from reputable sources say that NBA could consider plans to expand as early as this fall (2024).  Likely sites for new teams would be Seattle and Las Vegas.  

The Seattle Super Sonics, who left for Oklahoma City in 2008, was Seattle's first major league sports franchise, at least in modern times.  It also gave the city an NBA title in 1979.

We saw the Turtles at Snoqualmie Casino, along with other acts from the 60s.  Howard Kaylan, the lead singer, lived in the Seattle area at the time and was a customer at our store.
