January 6th, 2018

For some reason I woke up at 3:45 this morning. I don't sleep well usually, but it seems that I wake up when I have someplace I want to go and have an alarm set to get up early to go. Generally I wake up at 6:00 or so anyhoo. This morning I did have an … Continue reading January 6th, 2018


Back to the Peninsula

Had an emergency pop up with one of my hearing aids this past week so it was back to Port Townsend - but just long enough to drop it off for repairs.

Strangebrewfest, the Laundromat, and Open Mic

Last night I went over to Port Townsend to attend the Strangebrewfest. It was a weekend-long street party with a beer competition. Port Townsend is a cool place with a kind of hippie/artist vibe - it was one place I went to a few months back in another post. There were guys walking around in … Continue reading Strangebrewfest, the Laundromat, and Open Mic
