Fish pond

This private fish pond is at the end of the street in my neighborhood. Very pleasant dog-walking destination. Somebody's labor of love. The fish who live in the pond think they are going to be fed when they hear voices

House for sale

These houses behind me took a long time to sell. One just sold, but they've been sitting over a year. This one is still on the market. Nice house. Price started over 700K, now asking 590K. As my neighbor sniffed "I wouldn't pay 3/4 of a million dollars for a house in my own neighborhood"

Construction at LFP Mall

This construction on the exterior of the Lake Forest Park Town Center has been going on for some time. Can't figure out what they are doing....are they really adding some second story or just facade. Structural repair? ?????

Edmonds Marina Park

Due west from Lake Forest Park on the sound (about 5 miles from my house). The beach at Marina Park was so peaceful the other day, it was almost enchanting

July Theme Day "No"

Somehow I can never figure out what the theme day them is so I'm always late

I am featuring a picture not from Lake Forest Park WA but from Eugene OR where I have spent a lot of time.

It says "Do NOT" as opposed to "No"

Picture taken within the last few weeks on an escalator at Autzen Stadium at the University of Oregon in Eugene. We were on the way to the fancy banquet hall to attend the student-athlete graduation brunch

Do not stomp!
