Life from the Passenger Side

Optical HelpI needed to get my glasses fixed the other day. One side of the frame that holds the lens was loose and about to let go.So down I go to our local optical shop, Pacific Eyeware, to enlist the help of Vivian.  Off she goes into the backroom workshop.

My Feathered FriendsKnowing the importance of "keeping the troops happy", I dropped by the Food Co-op here in Port Townsend today to see how our employees are doing. Oh, I know they aren’t really my employees, but since we regularly buy 4 dozen eggs (white) I figure we are keeping six hens employed fulltime.  Actually, I haven’t ever seen our chickens, nor anyone else’s for that matter.
