Passing through and checking in.

Greetings from fabulous rainy/sunny, if you don't like the weather, just wait a moment and it will change, Seattle.


Say, how much fun is it to a) discover during a driving, blasting rain storm that your roof leaks, dripping into your home office; b) climbing onto your roof during said rainstorm to try to pinpoint the leak; c) not find the leak and so have to cut into the only attic space in your home that does not have an access way into which the water is leaking; d) discover that the source of the leak is actually partially under an overhang(?); and e) climb back onto the roof in said howling rainstorm and use roofing tar to patch the leak? Answer: Not much fun at all. But ya do whatcha gotta do.


Speaking of Seahawk football, also not much fun this season so far. BUT, hope (not the Barry Bam Bam sort) springs eternal. A Three Pete would be nice.


Finally, as hockey is a passion of our gracious hostess, I must mention that my cousin's son, a former pro hockey player himself, got together with two of his high school hockey bum buddies and opened a brewery! Okay, it is in Eagle River, Alaska, just north of Anchorage, but still! It is called Odd-Man Rush, which is a hockey play of some sort I am told. So, if any of you are passing through Alaska, check it out. https://www.facebook.com/oddmanrushbrewing


So what is the haps with all of you? I will check in over the next months to see who still drops by.
