    I suppose I could follow my normal Sunday routine and once again not find the Sunday Seattle Times (that I’ve paid for twenty years at this house) on my doorstep or front lawn. “…a known delivery issue…”. That gets really old.

      That same thing keeps happening to us! It’s very frustrating.

        Make sure you go on their website or app and tell them you didn’t get a paper.  Very easy to use and they will refund or re-deliver.   I’ve had the refund work, not the day late delivery…fwiw.

    Arrived at 10 am while I was working in my front yard. “Car problems,” he said. There has been a lot of that this year.

    Took my girls down to Constellation Park shortly after noon for the whale info but we didn’t see anyone in the area.

Sorry, comment time is over.
