    So very true. For me it's a relief knowing there is this little spot that I can go to and not be deluged with negative things.

    Same to you, and I'll second that sentiment! I think I received enough chocolate today to put on 15-20lbs easy

    LOL. That is great.

    Sounds like one story my mother likes to tell about me. She worked on the after hours cleaning crew at a small manufacturing plant and she would bring me with her. I'm guessing I was 6-8 years old. She would park me at the receptionists desk and I was to sit there and read or play but it was understand I was not to touch anything or leave that chair.

    Well apparently one night I picked up the telecom microphone and sang with all my might "Beat It" by M.J. to everyone working 2nd shift in the shop.

There was lots of laughter after that call.

    Beautiful area. I know it's a two-hour drive, but if you haven't visited it already, carve out some extra time next time you head west and travel two hours south of Cannon Beach to Lincoln City and visit Robert's Bookshop...I can't recommend this place more highly. It's an usually large and rich bookstore (especially for the relatively sparsely-populated coastal area it's in)...I've never spent less than two hours there, and always leave with some treasures.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have not been to Lincoln City in years. May have to head down there in the spring!

    Yes, Cannon Beach is kind of my go to place. Good restaurants, good shops and live theatre for $20! I keep thinking I should venture elsewhere, and I eventually will but Cannon Beach keeps pulling me back. Last night was closing night at the theatre so they released 2022's schedule and I am sure to return for at least two of them.

    I even have a 25th Anniversary poster (from 2012) from their store framed in my office:

    Great start to a vacation. Unfortunately, the restaurant I planned to have dinner on Friday had decided to vacation until 12/28.umbrellaor them but a miss for me. When I went to sleep Sunday morning there were three crab boats visible offshore. I wondered if they would be heading in soon as a storm was predicted. Woke about two in the morning and had to close the patio due to wind. The boats had all gone home. Sunday morning, I was greeted to 30 mile an hour sustained winds plus much stronger gusts and wind coming at you sideways. I opted to drive to breakfast rather than walk the 1/2 mile. After breakfast I tried to walk about. In less than five minutes my umbrella had been closed by the wind (I actually had never experienced that before), turned inside out and because I could only cover my upper body with the umbrella my jeans were soaked. Spent most of the day in my room watching the storm blow through. Left at 7 last night to go to a play and there was no wind or rain. The play was an original production which was a 1936 Christmas play of 'A Christmas Carol' being acted out. Wasn't sure what to except but it was fantastic!
