post your Crazylegs happenings here

Helen and I arrived by SW yesterday at noon... met up with Kathy & Ralph at the SeaTac Comfort Inn

then took the shuttle to the monorail..
monorail to the Space Needle.... found out the tour line was about an hour and $16

the restaurant was a 3 day wait list...
so we took some pics and headed for the waterfront..

downtown Seatlle on the waterfront was really nice
especially the Pikes Place Market... which goes on forever

....hey...off to breakfast

Bobby: [voiceover] Seaside.. shoot; I'm still only in Seaside... Every time I think I'm gonna wake up and be at the Fest.
Bobby: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was home after my first tour, it was worse.

Bobby: I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back to the fest. I'm here a week now... waiting for a mission... getting softer. Every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute Luka squats in the bush, he gets stronger. Each time I looked around the walls moved in a little tighter.....

Well, I'll be heading out the door in a few minutes.

I have a couple of stops to make along the way, so it'll still be a few hours before I get to Crazylegs' place...

Hey! There were two pins in the map in Texas. Do you know who they were they for? I mean, I don't remember any knuckleheads or anything.

 

(post #88899, reply #15 of 44)

     Brownbagg? Maybe he knows his Geography like he spells?

I'm dying here. One of the places I want to visit is Pike's Market. Do they really still throw the fish? The produce looks terrific.

Nordstrums is one of my favorite stores. When they have a sale, watch out!

(post #88899, reply #33 of 44)

Yes, they still throw the fish. 


Lately, though, PETA has been trying to raise a little h--- with them by stating that they are disrespectful to dead animals and that the fishing methods are inhumane, as the fish are alive and crushed under the weight of others in the nets.  They were trying to get the City & the Market to ban the practice of the fish toss.


For a while, a couple years back, they were all over the market for the bronze pig statue out front.  Also a point of disrespect, in their book.


PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals?)


I'm all for respect of life and treating animals kindly but these folks seems to push the wrong buttons.

I had read somewhere about that and that PETA wanted them to throw rubber fish!!!

I love farmer's markets and that one looks awesome.
