A Family Walk with Table and Chairs

I was out in my yard gardening, when… a table and two chairs walked by!  Setting down my shovel, I got the scoop: After brunch out with her parents, this young woman had found a great set for her kitchen at the consignment store nearby. She considered having it delivered, and going home for her […]

Presto, Change-o!

I was bicycling along on Seattle’s Burke-Gilman Trail when this caught my eye.  Were those…. shoulder pads?  Stapled to the stop sign?  Going back for a closer look, I saw that this one was stitched with the word, “Change-o” … And, you guessed it, the one on the other side said “Presto.” Masterful!  What trail […]

Hatch Cover Art!

Hatch Cover Art!

I was walking around Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood one day and happened to notice that several hatch covers had very intricate designs.  Apparently, the City of Seattle has actually commissioned several artists over the years to design “hatch cover art” and these can be found in neighborhoods all over the city.  Some even have street […]

Going Greyhound

Undriver Steve Verhey commutes weekly by Greyhound from Ellensburg to Olympia and back.  Here’s a recent “Woulda Missed This If Driving” dispatch:  Last night a skinny, pale guy wearing a T-shirt, light sweat pants, and Converse-like shoes got on the Greyhound bus at Olympia. He was carrying a paper bag just larger than lunch-sack size. […]

Three boxes, Four hands

Three boxes, Four hands

I met these two out walking their big boxes of computer equipment in downtown Vancouver BC. Who says you need a car to get a bunch of heavy stuff from Point A to Point B?  Woulda missed this if driving! -Julia Field

Freeway Goats

Freeway Goats

Earlier this week, part of the land under the freeway at I-5 and 40th street in Wallingford was wrapped in chain link fencing. The whole lot was covered in blackberry brambles so wrapping it seemed kind of silly, but I thought maybe they were sick of the local homeless people using it as sleeping quarters […]

Books by Bike!

Books by Bike!

Spotted this in my ‘hood – someone stopped off after a library visit for an errand downtown. Love those high-capacity bike baskets! Delivered home by bike, this stack-of-books is just a little light reading….

City Garden Fungi

City Garden Fungi

On a whim, I decided to take a short detour through a p-patch (community garden) while running errands on foot in my neighborhood last week.  And what did I find there?  TOADSTOOLS! [Folks, these are NOT edible!]  I found  hundreds of them growing in clusters and rings, dotting the tomato patch, and hiding behind onion […]

Love on the Light Rail – Woulda missed this if driving!

Love on the Light Rail – Woulda missed this if driving!

Riding the Light Rail on the day it opened with my step-granddaughter, she befriended the little boy sitting in front of us. By the time we reached the end of the line, they had fallen in love. On the ride back to town he asked her to come see his Lego collection, but she declined. […]

Yarn-bomb Yoda

“I saw this Yoda yarn cozy covering a fire hydrant one day while riding home from work.
