We had dinner with Jason in Seattle this evening. About 25 miles outside the city, there was a sign that said 85 minutes to Seattle. We were moving along at the speed limit, so I thought the sign was a mistake. It wasn’t. About 8 miles outside the city we slowed to a crawl. We could have walked faster. It’s probably typical traffic for Seattle. It is not my cup of tea.
We took the dogs for a walk on a rails-to-trails. They are trails built on old railroad beds. I love them. We did about 4 miles round trip. We planned to go further, but it got hot today and the dogs were wilting. It’s supposed to get even hotter through the week-end, so we may have to get our hikes done early in the morning or do something else. (I know my friends and relatives in Maryland are dealing with exceptionally hot temperatures so I don’t expect any sympathy from them over our little heat wave.)
There is a several casinos around here. Maybe I’ll be a big spender and drop a twenty on the slots and see what happens. It beats the heat!
