Well, I left Seattle in my rear view mirror today and headed to Ellensburg, Washington to visit my good friend Connie.  I don't have access to a computer today to download my photos but maybe I will be able to pull it off tomorrow.  Goodnight!


  1. Wow, do I have memories from Main Street in Ellensburg, October 2010... Ask Lisa Ropp about it. Lovely place, though! :-)

  2. Ha ha, Ellen. That's the first thig I thought of when I read this blog. :)
