RAVE To Roger and Lois, two charming seniors from the Midwest visiting their grandson in Seattle who fearlessly ventured out from Kirkland to explore Seattle via bus, took the wrong bus, arrived downtown 3 ½ hours later and then did the Duck Tour, Chihuly Museum and more. My co-worker and I had the pleasure of sitting next to the tired duo on their bus trip back and heard priceless stories from Roger about life as a farmer over the last 50-plus years. You two made our day!

RANT To dog owners: I know you love your pet, but please keep your dogs out of the grocery shopping carts. I don’t want dog hair or bugs on my grocery items. Supermarkets should ban dogs except for service dogs.
