This was 15 years ago. We spent the day at the Puyallup Fair (The Washington State Fair) in Puyallup, Washington... We just had to stop by one of those photo booths and have our Pioneer Family photo taken. I am so blessed with wonderful kids. They’ve all grown up to be such talented wonderful hum...

I was making my usual Saturday rounds running errands, a stop at Fred Meyer for a few groceries, dropped off my shirts at the Renton Cleaning Center and a quick stop at McLendon Hardware to get a few things I needed for a weekend project. As I was walking back to my car I couldn’t miss this big o...

Throwback Thursdays... The Easter Shirt. Our first home was in the Renton Highlands, referred to by locals back then as 'the projects'. These little homes were mass built in the early 1940’s during World War II to house the families that moved here to build airplanes at Boeing... This was taken i...

Dad'isms... The world according to Dad. A busy week and Friday too, but I took a few moments here and there throughout the day to think about my Dad and his upcoming birthday. He'd be 93 this coming August 18th. Then it hit me, "Geez, it's been 16 years since you passed back in 1998." How'd that ...

The Real Estate Market in the Renton Highlands area for the first half of 2014 has performed pretty much as predicted.

Kisses for Jimi... I had the good fortune to see Jimi Hendrix perform live four times. The first was at the Eagles Auditorium in Seattle in 1967, then two times at the Seattle Center Coliseum in 1968 and 69, and finally at Sicks Stadium (in the rain) on July 26, 1970. The Jimi Hendrix Memorial is...

As the years pass I can’t help but chuckle to myself when I think of Mom. At a stretch, she was just 5 feet tall and it still seems amazing to me what a ball of fire she was. Mom loved live theater, art, happy hour, and going out on Friday or Saturday with friends to nightclubs to enjoy the local...

Take Off... I love the sound of small planes taking off. It goes all the way back to the late 1950’s when we moved across town from the Renton Highlands to the Earlington neighborhood. Our bedrooms were upstairs and it got pretty hot up there in the summer so we’d have all the windows open as wid...

I met Dan back in 1965, I was 15. It was the summer before my sophomore year at Renton High. I don’t remember details except John, a bass player I knew, invited me to a party across town in Sierra Heights. The band I was in just broke up. Well, that’s how they put it, but actually I think I got t...

Are you superstitious? I am, but not nearly as much as I used to be. My mom and dad and my grandma were about some things. As a kid I had a rabbits foot, we didn’t walk under ladders, and it was always time for concern when out of nowhere a black cat crossed your path. I still catch myself using ...

I’ve been rather absent for a week or so. Not on purpose. I threw my back out and pinched a nerve loading up my Explorer. I bent over to position my laptop, projector, briefcase, and a box of class printouts for the trip up to north Seattle to teach a social media class when I felt a ‘pop’ in my ...

Grandma’s House, revisited... As I go through life I look forward each year to the memories that come with autumn. Some of the more vivid take place at the home of my grandparents, George and Pauline Fabre. They lived just a mile from our home on Tobin Avenue behind Renton High School. Fall was a...
