Goofus and Gallant’s Code of Ethics

April 6, 2013


As a kid sitting in the dentist’s office a long, long time ago (the  late 70’s/early 80’s),  Highlights was THE magazine of choice. Of course, I wasn’t interested in the puzzles or crafts or anything that might teach me something but only…..Goofus and Gallant! Goofus and Gallant were real life to me…at least Goofus was. I […]

Finally…..a Worthy, Seattle Protest!!!

April 1, 2013


Many people outside of the Pacific Northwest think of Seattle as a crunchy, green, cause oriented city.

My Field Trip to Seattle’s Northwest African American Museum

February 28, 2013


I took a tour of the Northwest African American Museum in Seattle yesterday, in my role as a chaperon for a skilled nursing home. I’m assuming the activities director chose the museum because it’s February,  designated Black History Month in the United States, but am not certain. She might have picked it for other reasons – it […]
