All you East Coast people:

How are you doing?! Only 7pm Pacific Time and, omg!, what a storm! I am thinking of you all and
hoping you are doing well.

Really wanted to see more of her. And it sounds like there is going to be a 'fine china' moment listening to the preview.

already got 3 big pumpkins

The biggest pumpkin farm in the state is just around the hill from us. We've got three big ones on the front porch and many small, adorable ones on the back porch. :-)

We spent the morning watching the space jump from about 24 miles above the Earth. The old record was set in 1960 by Joesph Kittinger and was also at the helm to be the voice on the ground guiding Felix Baumgartner thru his record setting jump. Amazing. Abby was waiting for him to land in the backyard.

Another day, two more fires

Yesterday was the first day we got an all clear for air quality. That lasted a couple hours and then this fire and another one across the river. The smell of smoke was back at midnight and is still here. No rain, not even for Seattle!, in the forecast.

Space Needle make-over

The Space Needle turns 50 years old this year. I was at the 1962 World's Fair when it debuted. I was just a wee child at the time... There is a contest to vote for what to paint the top to celebrate. I voted for this one. These are the rest HERE (I like the umbrella too :-)
