seeking knowledge and laughter, putting a bullseye on inaccuracy

Lynden to Redmond

Took the train from Lynden - on the Canada border, north of Seattle - to Seattle this morning. Andrea, Aunt Dawn, and I got picked up by Steff who I knew from the bookstore I work at. Saw Pike's Place Market. Crazy fish throwers - quite entertaining. They flung a giant squid at a girl who screamed and took off - quite funny for everyone. Even the girl came back laughing.

Lunch at the Spaghetti Factory - good food for good prices. Orf, old friend from high school, met up with us after and we left Aunt Dawn to head back to Lynden before we continued on to Redmond where we will be until Monday when we leave for Hawaii.

Walked around Redmond tonight - saw the Town Center, which was a nice outdoor mall. Dropped by the Half Price Books to look for a few treasures in the heat - no air conditioning? Better to walk back to Orf's and swim.

I'm nearly finished with Carl Hiaasen's Double Whammy which was his first fiction book. Excellent stuff - good to learn more about Skink and Jim Tile. If you like mystery - thriller type books, then I highly encourage you to read all of Hiaasen's fiction. Then check out Dave Barry's two fiction books also.
