RANT to continuing and increasingly frequent vandalism that caused us to take down our Little Free Library. It is a difficult decision. Having one of the earliest LFLs in Seattle has given such joy and feeling of community. We will miss our visitors but not the stress of maintaining a LFL that others seek to destroy.

RAVE to the several women who helped me up and assisted me and my Labrador to my car after I was T-boned by a pup chasing a ball at the Magnuson off-leash park. I am grateful for your kindness.

RANT to the United States Postal Service that provides expected delivery dates when a package is mailed. Expected delivery for a care package for a military base: June 13. Delivered: June 15. I’ve had packages miss the expected delivery date by 14-28 days. Why bother to provide an expected date?
