ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept. 19

I thought that we were going to Sequim, but we went to Silverdale. It looked familiar and I remembered that I was there three years ago and bought a food processor and a vacuum cleaner. I have a mind for details! That's where both Target , Costco, and Goodwill are. I understand that that is where the teenie bobbers spend there Saturday's. Target shopping was to get things to have ready when my Israeli daughter comes to visit. If you are not Jewish, it may seem complicated, but she keeps Kosher, so my pots, pans,kitchen utensils are not Kosher. I bought a fry pan, pot with a cover, and a few utensils, plus some dinner ware. Whatever else she may need we can get in P.T. As long as I was there, I bought a new bike helmet. I had to get a child's size because the adults couldn't be adjusted small enough for me. i was under the impression that I had an average sized head. Maybe that is shrinking too. Costco's parking lot was so crowded, that we decided that we couldn't face going in, so we went to Goodwill. After 15 minutes, my son went to the car for a nap. My DiL and I had a great time . Then, we met a serious obstacle. There is only one way home. Every  thing here is separated  by water. The bridge, The Hood Canal Bridge, which is a floating bridge and is probably a quarter mile long ,was closed. A horrific accident. We waited several  hours while emergency vehicles went and stayed at the scene. When they did leave, they didn't have sirens or lights flashing, which to us , meant that they  were not taking the victims to a hospital . When the road did open, we saw the scene. It was not good. One vehicle had the hood in the back seat. The police had taped brown paper over the windows. We figured that they didn't want us to see inside. The second car was only slight damaged. We speculated for the next 40 minutes on what could have happened. At this point, I only wanted to get back to Dixie , who was overdo for a walk. The lesson learned: how quickly and unexpectedly your life can change, or end.
