    Russell Purdock...anyone remember?

    Yes ….I remember this POS....the whole thing stinks to high heaven I am looking forward to the day when we see Russell in hand cuffs, leg chains wearing orange jump suit waddling off the bus to prison...and then one by one everyone else involved in this crime exposed and given their day in court.

    Seattle Area Must Sees/Dos

    Have her go to the motel 6 in Issaquah up toward the entrance to the state park and pour a bottle of beer on the ground where in 1971 a state trooper made me pour out a entire case of ice cold Rainer and said now take the young lady home and then go home ...I will drive by your house in 1 hour...and he did....remember when cops could do that?

    New Yacht Plows Into Dock At Port Angeles

    So what's going to happen... thank god no one was hurt...but what happens to the poor sob with his boat in his slip and has worked hard for the last 5 years getting his Santana 23 into top shape...bottom job...buff and wax...new sails and rigging and new electronics...does the insurance company pay for what he has into it or what Craig's list S23 is going for? the poor dude is mowing his lawn and the phone rings and a 25 million dollar yacht does a wrecking ball job on his boat. ?????

    rant: driving fuckery

    I drive a lot in rural Oregon ...two lane black top some gravel roads and we got these guys that drive what I call cartoon character trucks...you know way lifted 4wd 1 ton diesel with huge wheels and tires and most of the time they don't even have a trailer ball or hitch on them...these guys tail gate and then risk life and limb passing you to get to the stop light a head of you...then at night they got all these real bright lights ...looks like a moving Friday night football stadium....I like to watch them jump down to get out and then climb up to get back in ...always a good laugh...

    Someone is raiding my crab pots.

    When I was a boy I would spend the summers with a bachelor uncle on lopez island...he had a " communal " crab pot...his friends and neighbors would pick the crab they needed out of the pot and leave a 6 pack of beer...man some times that pot was heavy
