Sometimes when a path divides it might seem impossible to cross,
But you'll find we're better off to build a bridge in spite of the cost.

That's a good phrase in the picture looks interesting too. .

Driving through Seattle on a San Francisco bus,
They look like a bunch of cattle but it could be one of us.
Heading to the disco downtown on the bus but thinking of-
Wondering why they got stuck below while those ghosts got to ride above.

Happiness abound when BB8 comes out to play!
Whenever he's around the kids are sure to say...
That a helpful robot friend is so much better than a horse,
Especially for young Padawans that haven't learned The Force!

This is how busses roll here in Seattle.

Lawnmower man doesn't have a big plan,
He works hard on the yard and it grows back again.

Big monster on the house with two daughters in his hands,
He would put them in his mouth but they are his biggest fans.
And their father's down below looking up & quite perplexed,
But he's glad they're safe at home and not out somewhere having sex!

Any day, any hour (hopefully after a shower)
Is good enough to head up to the Party Flower,
No push, no shove, but please wear a Body Glove,
'Cause these weasels may have done things you may not approve of!
Some are fat, some are buff,
And like it soft or do it rough,
But everyone is welcome, even monsters come for love!

I took my dog to Companion Animal Hospital for her last three years of life and have the best things possible to say about this clinic. Dr. Goldthwaite helped my dog all the way through to the end, helping to keep her healthy and her pain managed in spite of various health conditions. It's a very professional facility and we also used it numerous times for boarding. They offer particularly affordable options for boarding compared to other places. If I get another dog I will definitely go to Companion again!

Instructors are friendly and knowledgeable and patient with my two boys. The Dojo is a little small but it makes for an intimate personal environment. You can also park at the car wash behind if there are no primary spaces... It's the instructors that keep us coming back! My boys have a love for martial arts now.

Chuck E. Cheese doesn't have real "arcade" games. The "games" they have are really bad machines that pretty much just eat kids tokens as fast as they can put them in. Often they don't even work, and when your tokens get eaten -- good luck getting a refund. You tell an employee who has to escalate it to the manager who is never to be found - and then they really don't want to give you the refund (of a 25 cent token.) So they go to the machine and you have to prove it doesn't work. Then they reluctantly give you a refund of a single token after 15 minutes of waiting. Unbelievable. The employees are generally unhelpful and don't seem to want to be there. In spite of all of this, it's usually incredibly crowded. I don't recommend it at all.

This is a classic old fashioned diner - but in a GOOD way. The service is always friendly and the food is always good. The breakfasts are just good, basic breakfasts. Nothing fancy, but again - in a good way. Chace's Pancake Corral is leaps & bounds better than IHOP or Denny's. There's usually a wait on the weekends, so get there early. Also, the tables are a little close together because it's a small space but the overall vibe is homey, friendly, and sort of reminds me of an America that probably only existed in shows like Leave It To Beaver. I love this place.

The company I work for sent us as a team building thing and it was great! The Battlepods are a bit dated, but it doesn't matter - as long as you have a group to play with it's super fun. There's probably 35(?) or so arcade machines around to play, too, and the guys that run it are pretty chilled out & helpful. Thumbs up, had a good time.
