    @Mark Wangerin your pics are so nice, do you sell any of them?

    • Mark March 18, 2017 (9:20 am)

      Thanks. I used to give digital copies away to those that ask. However, a few freelance photographers convinced me to charge a small fee…

    They should call him “Bushtit Dangerbird”- he’s sitting in a bush full of giant dagger spikes!!?!

    How did the Boy Scouts do?  

    I really like that they are working to help the community!

      I hope we’ll receive some followup info – most years, we do, from at least one troop. We were hoping to stop by the Thriftway food drive but ended up on two other things (stories in progress) during that time frame.

      Cub Scouts from Pack 284 dropped off their collected food at the West Seattle Food Bank Saturday morning, unloaded and sorted the food, and then got a tour.  Their total (from the WSFB coordinator) was 517 lbs of food.  Great group of scouts and thanks to the community for participating 

Sorry, comment time is over.
