Took the Shillings for some nature therapy and photography along the Elwha River. 6 mile hike with the fall colors in full splendor.

A driving detour to Hurricane Ridge, and saw a mama bear and three cubs along the road. What a fun way to end the day!

Been a while since I made a cocktail, but this week it's well deserved.

French Connection cocktail.

Equal parts cognac and amaretto, over ice. Quite tasty

Good times were had by all last night at the Pierce County meetup in Sumner, WA

Hope to see you all again soon!

Homeschool in the morning. Roaring fire. Kid doing research without much assistance. Cup of tea.

In a little while we'll brave the bad weather and meet some other kids at the park.

Homeschooling is pretty awesome.

For those thinking "well maybe it would be easier to just get vaxxed"

Pro homeschooling tip:

With the cost of ammo these days, target practice is now Economics 101. Fun way to get the whole family involved in economics. 🎯

What's the difference between a capitalist fairy tale and a Marxist fairy tale?

A capitalist fairy tale begins, "Once upon a time, there was....". A Marxist fairy tale begins, "Some day, there will be...."

You know you have a GOOD friend when they show you their secret spot for mushrooms.

Chanterelle season is here!

Fortunately one of my kids LOVES mushroom hunting.

More on the ongoing food bank saga.

It seems someone jumped the gun and put up a sign too quickly, but their plans were already afoot.

This is for the Quilcene food bank, which is one of four sites operated by the Jefferson County Food Bank (who also operate the one which put up a sign a few days ago).

So starting next week in Quilcene, unvaxxed can only wait outside, gets the leftovers, and only a one hour window.

This whole state should fall into the ocean.

From a Tacoma school:

"Principal Neil O’Brien emailed parents four days after the first day of school with an update on COVID policies at Geiger. He said that students must wear their masks during lunch in the cafeteria and, despite social distancing and outstanding ventilation, they must put the mask back up to chew and swallow their food."

Pressure works. The outpouring of community outrage made them put this on their sign.

(Follow up to a sign at a food bank that said "vaccination cards required)

They're now saying it was a miscommunication with staff who put the sign up. It has since been taken down, and they put this on their Facebook page.

I think this backfired dreadfully and they didn't expect the pushback.
