RAVE to the kind gentleman from Rock Automotive and the troopers from the Washington State Patrol who changed my tire after I hit a wheel that had just popped off another car near Snoqualmie Pass. I’m about a month late on this, but thank you. I also want to send well wishes to the family in the other car.

RANT to the woman running with her son in Ravenna who passed me from behind, heavily breathing on my neck and face as she ran by only a foot away. Please stay well away when passing, even if you think you will be by in seconds. Your breath will linger.

RAVE to the friends, neighbors and strangers who waved and called out “Happy Easter” to walkers heading safely in the opposite direction. You did indeed contribute happiness to the day. Thank you.
