    I appreciate Trailsider's mix of original beats. Bought a box of cookies on the way home and let the young lady and her mother know how much Kathy appreciated them returning her bracelet.

    Hi Mike, It's been a long time since I joined one of your outings. Just purchased a Great Wheel ticket and am excited to spend the day in Seattle. I'm all for lunch at Pike Place Market, not sack lunches. See you Saturday.
