RAVE to the doctors, nurses and specialists at Kaiser’s Urgent Care in Bellevue. I had the unfortunate need to visit them twice in the last two weeks and their care, kindness, professionalism and personal touch made my dreaded experiences tolerable. Thank you to all of you!

RANT to the older people who ride public transit and assume that because someone is young, they cannot be disabled. Disability is not confined to older people and cannot always be visually ascertained.

RAVE to our next-door neighbors who tolerate our geriatric dog pooping on their lawn. She can’t walk very far anymore and has decided that their front yard is her preferred morning bathroom spot. Of course I scoop it immediately leaving no trace, but their kindness and good humor is still deeply appreciated!
