Interesting local (Seattle) Covid info and good advice from The Stranger

The Stranger is Seattle’s alternative news source.

Some interesting stats and straight forward advice if you read to the end.


Off-duty officer accused of driving through crowd no longer works for Seattle police

I keep a good eye on local news, and yomammabeenloggin keeps me up to date too. I missed this however. Sounds likethe guy (not named) was stalking protesters in the area or lives in the area and was sighted a couple days before the incident (same car) and was reported to be shouting racial slurs at the CHOP protestors.

Another one bites the dust.



A week after an off-duty Seattle police officer was accused of driving through a crowd, that officer no longer works for the department.

Hung my flag upside down

In a funk.

Trying to decide if I will go to a protest event or the beach. Sun is trying to come out. Would be nice for either. I like just walking and listening to the ocean. Maybe should do that...

Not much like a 4th of July I’ve ever known.

Take care.

Meet WA State Supreme Court Justice Raquel Montoya-Lewis

Article in Seattle Met.


“”WHEN RAQUEL MONTOYA-LEWIS walks the halls of Olympia’s Temple of Justice, intimidation fairly radiates from its marble pillars—and from the long line of supreme court justice portraits. “There are zero who look like me,” says the five-foot, onetime law professor, appointed in December to the state’s highest court. This year, its nine justices will rule on drug sentences and potato farm disputes, sexual assault exams and, inevitably and repeatedly, the constitutionality of car tabs; Montoya-Lewis will run to retain her seat in November. As only the second Native American state supreme court justice in the country, she wields insight from her Pueblo of Isleta tribe and her mother’s Jewish roots, from tribal courts and a stint on Whatcom County Superior Court. That collected wisdom boils down to a simple directive tattooed on her forearm, lettered around an eagle feather and gavel: “Be kind. Do justice.” –AW “”

I must do something to help make sure tRump is NOT re-elected. I must.

I won a prize from the Greenwood car show n cruise

A fire extinguisher! I assume for a vehicle.
Just got the call.

Saturday Sarge (my Hummer H3) and I participated in the cruise and food drive. The man that called said that we brought in over 400lbs of food and the raffle did well too. I bought two $5 chances. Woot!

Was a great cruise with stops and then people had a chance to socially distance/ mask mingle a bit and talk cars.

Imma a Chevy girl and there were plenty of beauties! Lots of mustangs too. Many international brands of all classes and even two hydro boats on trailers.

I don’t have a fire extinguisher in Sarge so will have to make room among the emerg gear.

Peace! And cars!
