    You might try Mary’s Place, they have a shelter in White Center,

    Here is their main office (Downtown) phone number:206.621.8474. I don’t know if you can directly drop off at the shelter, but they undoubtedly could tell you.

    Hi, Kathleen,

    I think a couple of good places to start would be the Duwamish Tribe and the Southwest Historical Society:

    Hope this helps!

    2MW, my guess is that it was bumped up by Spam, which WSB subsequently removed, but the thread still stays in the bumped up location.

    Hi, momonwestside, it looks like you may want to start here: https://www.seattle.gov/sdci/codes/make%C2%A0a-property-or-building-complaint

    In any case, even if that’s the wrong page, I believe SDCI is the department that would handle that.

    Hi, Kathleen. Unfortunately, due to chronic health issues, I am unable to help with your move, but just wanted to congratulate you on finding a place! I remember your post from when you were looking, and it seemed like you didn’t really have a whole heck of a lot of time to do so.

    I hope you are able to find the help you need!

    Dang! I’m gonna miss you TSurly!

    Being a Professional Pedestrian (though homebound 100% of the time in recent months due to high-risk for COVID), I’ve appreciated your comments over the years in support of safety for those whose modes of transportation are not surrounded by steel and able to move at high speeds. I even appreciate the snark. 😉

    Best of luck to you and your family!

    Hi, kgallaghy, WSB Forums is a great place to look for advice on this, and so much else.

    But, specifically to the topic of bikes/bicycling in West Seattle, and although I’m not…ummm…connected to them, other than casually following their Facebook page, I’d check with the group West Seattle Bike Connections.

    As far as purchasing a bike, although I don’t have personal experience with any of them, I think I’ve heard of mostly favorable experiences with all of the West Seattle bike shops.

    That being said, if I were in the market for a bicycle, the first place I’d probably check out would be Alki Bike & Board in the Admiral District.

    Not only is owner Stu Hennessy hugely involved with the local bicycling community he’s also very involved with the West Seattle community as a whole.

    Hope all of this helps!

    It’s been over a couple decades since I’ve had/used a mower, and I never tinkered around with the engine a *lot*, but going by vague memory, I seem to recall at least one small spring to the carb/throttle connecting to a hole on one end, and onto what is essentially a hook on the other end.

    I’m going to include a link to a Google results page, in where I searched copying from “Briggs”, through the end of the model number, in your post, then adding “schematics”.

    Also, have you searched online for tutorials/vids?

    I hope this can help at least until a more knowledgable reply comes in.

    Hi, fynechyna,

    I know you stated single key, and this finder states four keys, but this was posted here yesterday; keys found across from Alki Spud:

    FOUND 4 KEYS – ALKI, across from Spuds, Thursday, 8/20

    At any rate, I hope your son’s key is found.

    Not West Seattle, but just over the city limits in White Center.

    This came across my Facebook Timeline just yesterday, Bloom Bistro, “opening this Summer”. It’s opening up in the old Biscuit Bitch location, by a couple of BB employees.

    If you haven’t done so already, be sure to report it to SPU 206-386-1800. They might even be able to tell you the reason if they know.

    Don’t know if you have a specific area in West Seattle in mind, but I’d suggest the South Delridge/eastside of Westwood Village, or even White Center, near 15th & Roxbury, especially if transit might be viable for your GF in getting to the VA Hospital.

    Metro Route 60 starts along the eastside of the mall, along 25th Av SW, then works its way up into the very southeast South Delridge area (Barton Pl, to Delridge), then onto Roxbury. It’s a bit of a “Milk Run”, probably taking a half-hour-ish from the starting point at Westwood to get to the stop nearest VA.

    It should be noted that it is probably the equivalent of a few blocks walk between the VA and the bus stops (near McPherson’s Produce Stand, on the triangle lot, if you are familiar. So, if there are any concerns regarding her having to walk that stretch, that would need to be weighed in deciding if her riding the bus would be viable.

    These areas would also allow you to use the Route 120, from White Center (originating in Burien), going down Roxbury before swinging over to the south side of Westwood, then up Barton Pl and north on Delridge on its way downtown. The last West Seattle stop at Delridge and Andover(?) would be where you and your bike get off, and continue over the low bridge to work.

    Another option, if/when things get back to normal transit-wise, would be the 125, which, like the 60, starts out on 25th on the east side of Westwood, then up Barton Pl/Henderson, then north on 16th. It eventually rejoins Delridge after passing through South Seattle College, just s few stops before that last northbound bus stop on Delridge.

    I think this area may also work well for the times your GF has to drive down to Tacoma.

    Hope this helps, and good luck, and (hopefully) Welcome to West Seattle!

    TDog, condolences on the loss of your dog.

    Another option, although it would mean a trip down to Pioneer Square which I don’t know the feasibility of for you under current circumstances, might be the Doney Clinic. They provide veterinary care to the pets of unhoused folks.

    Here is their website, to contact them and ask:

    I didn’t have time to search for a source when I posted earlier, but here is a link from a few months ago explaining the fee.

    Please note that I “misspoke”, above, on the fee for higher cashback amounts. The article breaks down the fees as this:

    For amounts between $100 and $150, the fee will be $1.50. For $150.01 to $2,000 it will cost you $3.50. For amounts between $2,001 and $9,999 it will cost $6 to get your cash.

    I don’t recall the source, but I read somewhere in the past few weeks that Kroger (QFC/FM parent co.) is now doing this. I think there is a withdrawal amount point that the fee starts, but don’t recall it offhand, and I think the fee goes up to $1.00 at some point.
