Thankfully my friends down there are okay also. Lots of damage though. No idea how long it will take to get back to a semblance of what they used to call normal.

I am leaving for the weekend this afternoon to once again stay with Ali and the girls until Sunday night.
We'll be going to the farmer's market, a Foodie Fest on the grounds of Cabin Fever coffee and a Storybook Adventure for the kids at the college which is to promote early literacy.
We're talking about going to the zoo as well.

Ty is still in Texas. There was talk that they'd be transferring to Florida, but that won't be happening now, thank God lol
He has been in the Baytown/Houston area since with the towing company.

Sass, Ty should be busy for a while. I read on a Tx msg board that they have run out of room for towed vehicles in Baytown and are now towing them more north, don't remember where though.

They've been staying in the Houston area pretty much.
He's been to La Porte and Pearland as well.

Royal Purple Raceway is where they've taken the vehicles.
He loves the food stops, but is growing tired of it and being away in general.
Apparently they are trekking back home next week.

I just got back from a week in Whistler then 4 days in Port Alice. The ferry rides and drives were fun and was so happy to be back on the North Island, just wish I could have stayed a bit longer. The food was all good, too. My bud fixed moose two nights and a baked king salmon another. We fly fished for chum salmon for three days and I never caught a fish although I had several on - they were powerful fish and and lost them. I never did see a live bear but did see a cub some poachers got and witnessed an arrest being made. I saw elk, deer, eagles, blue herons, and lots of seals. I don't know I'll get back to PA - my bud is thinking of selling his boat and moving to the mainland. His wife is not well and she is his fishing partner.

Of course the food in Whistler was good - I ordered a rib eye at Araxi that came almost well done. I sent it back and they brought me second and took it off the bill. I felt bad but did not complain. I finally got to eat at Sidecut at the Four Seasons and it was excellent - too bad my wife hates steakhouses. I doubt we'll go back.

I just finished the blanket for my mom. It took 3 weeks to crochet it. Not bad at all.

As I have the autumn vacation at this week and a lot of time, I have knitted woolly hats. Now three done and I think it might be enough for one winter.

This afternoon we're heading to Yakima for the night, then an early start tomorrow morning for Utah to visit Matt. We'll try to do some sight seeing in Utah this time.

I've not been cooking anything special except for pot roast and fixings the other day. It's been boring.

I was at Sam's Club shortly after they opened this morning just wanting to get some necessary stuff. Little did I know they were having a 1 day only sale. The electronics dept was packed, and tvs were flying out the door. Some people were buying 3 or 4 tvs .

I got my necessaries but got sucked into buying a king set of sheets. They're regularly $80 but were on sale for $55 and included 4 pillowcases, which was a boon for me since I normally have to buy an extra set of pillowcases.

I got a new Christmas tree. This tree is da bomb. It's the easy set up thing where you just put the poles together and that's what connects the lights. It has an on/off foot switch, a storage bag, and another switch to turn the lights to:
solid white, blinking white, solid color, blinking color, switch from white to color, and whatever else . All for $120...love it.




The inside branches are the old style. The tips are PE and look like real stuff.




Cutesy train set from my late s-i-l.




I've also got a flooring project in the works. I ordered a box of engr hardwood from home depot. I was supposed to get it yesterday. So...I go online and see that it's out for delivery. Well, it sure was out for delivery, except that it was out for delivery in Cody, Wyoming. I checked today, and sure enough somebody got it, left on their front porch .

I was told that the labels got switched. If that's really the truth, then I should be getting a little surprise pkg delivered to me. I think that was just a CYA move.

Today John A., Peter, and I went to Edmonds and made beer at Gallagher's. It's a keg of an IPA using Yakima hops, and Irish moss. We go back in two weeks to bottle it.I'll get some pics up in the a few days.

I'm helping DW with xmas baking and running a bunch of errands. We are far enough out of town that when I make a trip to town it's usually for 3 or more stops. Today it's way more. LOL
DW put from Santa on our kids stuff until they were in their 30's and had kids of their own.
