    If you have a link to the restaurants doing take out for Thanksgiving dinner, please post.   I did a quick search and didn’t find it.  Or if you are still working on it, no problem.  Thanks.

      We have many lists in progress and are trying very hard with limited resources to do what we can. Most years we start on this a couple weeks in advance but given that everything changed just a week ago there was no way to do that.

    I just love this building, I know it poses some historical challenges for the tenants but I will cry if it is ever torn down.

    Mom’s old beauty salon (“Elite”) now a wine store. Oh the hours I spent there of a Monday morning as a youngster, swinging my feet while sitting under a bonnet dryer, reading movie magazines and –allegedly–singing the WSU fight song, thinking no one could hear me. (Because *I* couldn’t hear anything under the dryer, lol.)

    Beautiful image, Jerry Simmons. Rain has its joys, if you get out and look.
