More Bagels for Mongo
Early in the morning, Dad had purchased two bagels. Dad had eaten his, but he left Drewbie’s bagel on the kitchen table, waiting for him to wake up. Will Dad ever learn about leaving bagels out?
As the days get shorter, many animals start their preparations for winter. The creatures need to lay in supplies, or store up body fat for hibernation. Dad’s excuse for his belly is the latter.

Total Chaos and Fur Underwear
It was rainy and cold outside. Dad was getting ready to make a quick dash out to the store.
The trash was full, so Dad grabbed the bag from the bin and changed it out. He turned and stood holding the trash bag while out the door at the sheets of rain pouring from the dark skies, and decided not to take the trash to the right then.

Walking on Alki, Part 1.
Mongo and Dad decided to take a walk down to Alki Point. It’s a nice stroll along the Alki Trail in West Seattle’s beachfront neighborhood.
They usually park near the Seacrest Ferry Docks and walk North towards the point and then onward towards Alki Beach.
Alki Point is the spot where the first white settlers to Seattle spent the first winter. Val over wedgwoodinseattlehistory.com, has a short history of that winter. ( Click here for Val’s History of Street and Place names in Seattle)
When the weather is nice, Alki is an exceptionally scenic place to walk. Read More…
