~ A Tribute To My City ~

Seattle is a very beautiful city, surrounded by the most precious gifts of Mother Nature. Yes, it rains here a lot, but the rain keeps everything dazzling green and that is why it's called "Emerald City". I am so very happy and fortunate to live here.

~ I Love Seattle ~

Here is how you recognize a true Seattlelite

First of all, a true Seattlelite never
carries an umbrella :)

You Might Be From Seattle If You....

Feel guilty throwing an aluminum can in the trash.

  Use the words "sun breaks" and know what it means.

  Know more than 10 words to describe a cup of coffee.

  Obey all traffic laws EXCEPT "keep right unless passing."

  Never go camping without waterproof matches and ponchos.

  Feel overdressed wearing a suit to a nice restaurant.

  Hear the word "ferry" and think of boats and long waits.

  Know more people who own boats than own air conditioners.

  Stand on a deserted street corner in the rain waiting for the light to change.

Know at least eight people who work for either Microsoft or Boeing.

  Are amazed by an accurate weather forecast.

  Consider if it doesn't have snow on it or has not recently erupted, regardless of altitude, it is a "hill" not a "mountain".

  Only honk your car horn if a collision is imminent, NEVER for anything else.

Go to a really nice bar and sit at a table.

  Invite twice as many people as you really want to a party since only half will actually show up.

Complain about Californians as you sell your house to one for twice what you paid for it.

Know what Lutefisk is.

Personally know someone from Alaska.

Resent being called a "weirdo".

Consider floating bridges a pain in the butt, not an engineering marvel.

    Find a wallet with $500 in it, and give it all back to the owner.

  Know the difference between Chinook, Coho, and Sockeye Salmon.

  Know how to pronounce "Sequim", "Puyallup" and "Issaquah."

Used to live somewhere else, but do not admit it in public.

  Consider swimming an indoor sport.

Can tell the difference between Japanese, Chinese, and Thai food.

  Have roots in Oregon, Idaho or Montana, but wanted a high paying job.

Are currently working as a computer consultant in Portland.

  Have ever tried to get a job in Alaska, especially a summer job - only.

  Think skiing always means being covered from head to toe, on snow or water.

In winter, go to work in the dark and go home in the dark, but only have an eight hour day.

Way to go Dad, and Thank You!
