new perspectives...

Porter Pass, Capitol Forest. Just west of Olympia, Washington. This picture was taken facing west.

To my visiting friends, welcome. I've posted to this blog since February of 2005, a month after my mom passed away. They've been sporadic posts at best but nonetheless they're posts.

I've discussed topics from changing jobs to finding Elvis (yes... even a picture to prove it). I only hope no one walks away totally bored by my rants, my raves, my simple expressions.

And for those of you who have known me in a different "life"... well, I've changed. Actually I was changed then. It would be more accurate for me to say that this is truly me.

Thanks for being here.

Hey DH, Pluffmud here...

Enjoyed your blog about oysters. Living on the Atlantic coast of South Carolina gives me a certain perspective on eating this delicacy.

People around here do "slurp" them down raw, but the true low country way to eat them is steamed with perhaps a little lemon juice or a home made hot sauce.

A big funraising activity for charities, schools, etc. is holding an oyster roast. In fact, one of the biggest of the year is coming up later this month. And it is big. Several thousand people will show up with their oyster knives, plunk down their money, buy their beer and wine and start shucking. Serious shuckers don't sit down; they stand at waist-high tables, where large, steaming pots of oysters are dumped. You grab an oyster (singles are better than clusters), open it, perhaps put a little lemon or sauce on it and suck it down. Grab a couple more and take a sip of beer or wine and grab some more. It's great fun and a good time to socialize with strangers and friends.

Hi DH,

Thank you. I really appreciate it.

Lovely photo. Looks like a beautiful part of the world to live in.

So "close" to Canada...I had to consult a map - they don't teach us much about the States where we are!!! - but thanks to Google - I am learning lots.

I am looking forward to getting to know the "world as you see it"

I have never eaten an oyster before. What do they taste like? :+)

Very pleased to be here. And from what I've seen so far I don't think there's any chance of getting bored.

Hi Ed, Sue, Steve, DG, Pluffmudder!!! Thanks for stopping by.

Some of you already know this is my little corner of cyberspace where I've been hanging out for awhile and others know me from other areas. Anyways, it's great to see things in a real light again, eh?

Pluff, I know about the "Carolinas"... spent some time back there in 1972-1975. Kinda around Fayetteville, NC. Also, I have a very good friend up in Banner Elk, NC and I used to visit McColl, SC quite a bit too. Spent a lot of time on the coast playing, working and just wandering around too.

Oh yeah... err, sorry about that Carolina loss to our Seahawks. Well, not totally but had the 'hawks not have been there I'd have been rooting for the Panthers.
