    I have lived in West Seattle my whole life (49 yrs) until last year. We moved to Eugene OR. You have no idea how lucky you all are for the amazing food in Seattle. I had fish and chips from what was supposed to be the best place in the area for fish and chips. Sadly I was soooo very disappointed. I may need to drive up to get some Sun Fish, pho, thai, gryos… the list goes on..

    What does your gut say? Not your heart or your head, but your gut. We had to put one of our dogs down a couple of months ago. So hard and sad and I wondered if we were doing the right thing, even at the time. But I am so glad we did, looking back now with a clear head and heart, she was miserable. I have a picture of her a week before and it breaks my heart how miserable she was.

    Again trust your gut. I’m so sorry 😥 this is the worst part of of having our beloved pets.

    Several years ago, I visited a nail shop near the junction. I left my debit card. I was a regular at this shop so I wasn’t concerned. I went back later and picked it up. In the next week, there were thousands of dollars in charges for places like Forever 21, Victoria Secret, many restaurants. I went to the police station to report it and the very not so nice and helpful police officer said that there was nothing that they could do and if I told people who I thought did this, it was slander. The shop is still open and the woman still owns it… I wonder how many other people have had their cards duplicated…

    I banked with BECU and they reimbursed the money, but it took a long time, which was difficult as we live paycheck to paycheck.

    I am not trying to be devils advocate I am seriously asking a question – is the parking strip off limits?

    So… where would you like the dogs to relieve themselves? I’m not trying to be flippant, I am curious.

    I have three dogs that we walk twice a day. I prefer to have my dogs poo and pee on the parking strip though there have been a few times where I may have missed a warning sign or they just dropped out of nowhere and went.

    And though I can appreciate not wanting a dog to poo and pee “inside” a persons yard (not the parking strip), most people feel that as long as he picks up the poo, what is it hurting.

    Unfortunately, people can’t read your mind and not everyone thinks of these kinds of things, so maybe either put up no peeing signs or put a fence up. Life is too short to be pissed of about something like this…

    We use Barkbusters. The trainer for West Seattle is David and he is great. They are pretty expensive but it i covers your dog through his/her lifetime. David worked with us when our dog was a young but our dog developed an unwanted behavior about a year later so I called and David came right out. it is nice to know I can call and the same trainer will come. Also, his methods work very well.

    Good luck!

    I am absolutely certain this guy was going through mailboxes to steal mail. He did not have any flyers either. He just opened mailboxes and then closed them. At one point, a woman and her child came out to play, he was across the street and he acted like he was doing something with the mailbox to conceal what he was really doing, but it was still obvious. I thought it was a little odd at first too because it was early and I know the mail hadn’t been delivered but I saw him many times, and actually followed him for a long time.

    My kids have played in both Pony and Little League. The biggest difference I found, in my experience, between the leagues is how competitive the leagues were. My oldest son played Pony. At about age 10, things seemed to get very competitive. This was good for my oldest as he was a good baseball player and took playing baseball very serious. My youngest son was not as competitive and lacked some of the skills of a great baseball player. We put him in Little League. This was a great experience for him as it wasn’t as competitive so he was able to just play and have fun.

    My oldest played to high school, coming from Pony and my youngest quit baseball at the age of 12. Again, this is just our experience.

    blessedmama – Thank you so much for filling this out.

    I understand your concern on the question but the thing is, you can’t really choose who gets the care or who doesn’t. I watched a great documentary that led me to do this research paper for my class. It’s call “Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall” on HBO.

    Once I finished the documentary I was torn. I have known several people that have done time in prison. Most of these people are not bad people, they did some bad things. Some of these people, after leaving prison have become great members of our society, and some have not. But I just couldn’t help thinking about the really bad people in prison – you know the ones – cold blooded killers, child molesters, rapists. My initial thought was, let these people rot in their cell and die alone. But what about the ones that are not really bad people, the ones who made mistakes. What if my child did something stupid and ended up in jail for 5 years? What if he was in jail and was told he had cancer and had a year to live? Would I want his last days to be alone, in his cell? I then thought of the year that I took care of my mother in law until she passed in our home under hospice. I could not imagine a person dying alone without compassion or care or loved ones – no matter who they are. But then I think of someone like Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer.

    There is so much to take into account when deciding personally if this is something you agree with.

    Again, thank you!!!

    Go through the Better Business Bureau. My son’s car engine was ruined when the Jiffy Lube in Federal Way overfilled his oil. They refused to pay for it so we put a claim in the Better Business Bureau. Jiffy Lube ended up paying for his car.

    I have also done the Small Claims as well and in this type of situation, I would highly recommend going through the BBB, they get the results and there is a mark on their record.

    When I was pregnant with my first child, my ex-husbands grandmother (little old Asian lady) told me one day that I was having a boy – because I was “ugly”.

    That’s pretty funny! Initially as I started reading the posts I was more in favor of the store putting the sign in the store, but now, I really could careless – but that is my own opinion. I can understand those that don’t want to discuss this with their kids.

    We have had many interesting dinner conversations at our table while our boys were growing up. We have always been honest and open – and for that our kids have no fear of coming to us about anything. If there were times when the kids were too young to get the concept, we’d make something up… pretty simple.

    Thank you 2 Much Whine, sbre, sam-c, trickycoolj, blbl and seaopgal… you guys made me laugh today!!!
