ON THE BACK BURNER

Feb. 20

I thought that three days would take care of all that I had to do. And it is enough time. If I stayed longer, I would find more things to do . I cleaned up my little neglected garden. That wasn’t on my to do list. That is what happens. One project leads to another and since I don’t expect to be back for awhile, I have to remind myself to just let it go. Being in Venice with so many people was an act of over stimulation. People, cars, traffic lights. A new traffic light at the popular Farmer’s  Market. The one where you had to turn right, even if you wanted to go left, because you couldn’t get across the street.The new hospital  almost complete. A row of three story apartment units. That was quick.We have these things in PT, but on such a smaller scale. I actually don’t think we have traffic jams  in PT. I’m not sure, but I think that I only know of about  3 or 4 traffic lights. maybe there are more, but not where I travel. PT has two  franchise that I know of.. Subway and Mc Donald’s .No CVS, No Walgreen. No office supply store. No Target, No Walmart no Costco. The pharmacies are in the grocery store/ General store and one private pharmacist. But there are two veterinarians. Two pet stores. No orthopedist. One hardware store. Three round abouts, but they are only one lane and that seems easy to handle. if you want to get your boat serviced, new sails, new everything that a sailer needs, PT is the place for you. I think that the boat yards have more boats stored and serviced than there are motorized vehicles in town. And I can’t forget Goodwill. And there you bring your own bags, or you end up carrying your purchases in your arms. No free standing Starbucks. It is in the grocery store. And oh yes, people que up to check out of some stores. quaint,but lovable.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
