We never lived anywhere for very long when I was a kid. The longest we ever lived somewhere was 3.5 years. The shortest was about 5 months, and there were a couple of places that were only 6 months each. When I was in the fifth and sixth grade we lived in Pacific Beach Washington. It was a very small community lots of logging, and shake mills, and that sort of thing. But I loved it. I think Washington State was one of my favorite places that I lived in. There was always so much to do. My family used to take lots of trips to Seattle and places like Blake Island...which by the way has the best salmon feast I have ever tasted in my life. Anyway on my 11th birthday my family took me to Seattle for a day of fun at an amusement park and sightseeing and shopping. That day was the first time I ever rode on a rollercoaster. My friend Rhonda Tarr came with me. Oh boy did we have fun. I got the big pink seashell below that day. The rest are pretty shells I have collected over the years, but the big pink one is always my favorite!! And it doesn't hurt that it is my favorite color.
Happy pink Saturday
p.s. I am thinking about going out to Washington State next summer for the Farm Chicks show. If anyone reading this has ever been please email me got some questions for ya.
