“Ralph!! GET BACK HERE RIGHT NOW!! I’m STARVING!!”

“Hey Alice, baby, relax! Norton and I are just watching the fight. Good game! Steller Sea Lion: 3, Cephalopod: zilch. I’ll pick up something for dinner on the way home.”

“Okay, see ya, Norton. I guess I shouldn’t keep Alice waiting. Time to go shopping– I better bring something back…”

“Uh… Uh-oh. What’s that above me?”

…about the music

Somewhere, under the rainbow bow.

Island life.
The myriad ways to be the go…
…and to be on the come back!

(and the come back is the best part).

If I’m not in a rush.

[IMAGE] Friday Harbor
The ferry, from the plane, both of us coming into Friday Harbor. And did you notice? That’s Mt. Baker, an active glacial volcano, in the background. I may be on the move a lot, but I sure hope all of that mountain stays right where it is.
