I'm Betty, living in Bothell. I feel that perhaps my greatest accomplishment was discovering compassionate vegetarianism, although I'm not a vegan -- and I admire you guys who are!!

Tell us a little about yourself, how long you've been vegan, and how you found our group

I humble mouse badly mutilated by some crows landed on my outside patio one day in Greenlake. Scared of catching rabies, I managed anyway to wrap her in a towel in a box and drove her to PAWS in Lynnwood. I left her in the hands of a vet, then -- surprise! -- got to read the educational materials posted on the walls of wildlife rescue, and pick up some brochures. Then I checked out the companion animal shelter right up the driveway and read more enlightened stuff. What a friggin' eye opener! I never knew!! That day was my death toll as a bloody meat eater. I converted, but not yet to veganism, I'm very sorry to say. I DO want to ask Safeway to PLEASE lower the cost of free-range eggs instead of letting them rot because most don't want to spend all that money.

    Betty, it is a baby sloth. One of the children from the local tribe brought it around. This was last summer, in the Amazon.

    Yes the cabana costs $35 to book so I am hoping the $1-5 donations asked from everyone will cover it.

    Good question Betty. There is parking right outside the restaurant on both sides and front and back. Because we will be there on the earlier side ( 6:00pm ) there should be no problem.

    Hi Betty
    The journal is described in the guidebook, which is required to participate in the group. Have you been able to purchase that yet? If you still have questions after reading it, let me know.
    Happy reading!

    Betty: This event was at a private home in Edmonds, WA.; a quiet setting without a parking problem. Sorry you missed it.

    So glad we'll be seeing you at our initial meeting! I'm reaching out to the other who have signed up right away- hopefully we will have a good sized group. Please let me know when you get the guide book or if you have any trouble finding it. See you soon!
