I went to a Historic Front Street Association meeting the other day at North Town Coffeehouse. Front Street is the setting for our Downtown Summer Nights concert series, and I always love going there. It reminds me of when I was a kiddo and my mom and dad and I used to visit faraway places by taking the train.
I really do not like driving in snow. But I admit it, the snow is really cool looking and fun to play in. One of my favorite things to do in the winter is ice fish. A lake that is just outside of Yakima is perfect for it. What is even more cool about the lake is, most people do not even go there during the winter, so it is usually just me and a handful of people. That is it!
The Yakima Herald-Republic recently reported that 86-year-old Paul McCulloh had found a mysterious suitcase in the storage unit he had rented for years. The suitcase wasn't his, but it contained a treasure trove of a family's memories -- photos, ashes of a pet dog, books and other mementos.
The Herald posted a photo of the suitcase's contents on their website in hopes that someone would come forward to claim the perplexing suitcase. No one had a clue as to how it wound up McCulloh's storage unit.
Weird as it sounds, I had kind of a similar experience back in the 1980s.
I just finished watching the NBC TV show "The Voice" tonight. It is one of the main reason why I watched, to see Blake Shelton perform his new single "A Guy With A Girl!" He did not disappoint! It was an excellent performance. Blake has such a charisma about him. It really doesn't matter what kind of music you like. He swoops a person off their feet.
There are a lot of charities out there, and I'd love to be involved with most of them. Pegasus Project is one of them -- such an incredible cause. They provide therapy for adults and children with special needs by getting them on horseback and teaching them to care for horses -- which helps clients cope with what they are going through. The Pegasus Project is always in need of donations.
The second annual Chili Cookoff at Owens Cycle last Saturday was awesome! We had a great time with the United States Marine Corps and the YWCA! All the bike clubs in town came out and entered their chili!
Jason Michael Carroll is one of my favorite country artists. He speaks from his heart and true experiences. That is what makes him so good. Watching Carroll perform on stage makes you feel like you have known him your whole life. You know, that small-town country living that he always talks about.
It's the time of year when chili just sounds good. And if you're particular about your chili and like to have more than one kind to taste, Owens Cycle has a treat for you: The second annual Chili Cook Off gets underway this Saturday (Dec. 3) at 11 a.m. in the Harley-Davidson dealer's parking lot, 1707 S. First St.
It is that time of year again when the city of Yakima comes to life. It is full of amazing holiday spirit! And the Larson Building stands in the middle of it all. It is such a great piece of Yakima Valley history and it is always fun to watch them light that building up.
