    Olympia, WA State Capitol

    It's tiny in the background....but technically it is a shot of the Capitol of Washington State!

    What's the story?
    Has anything in your experience led you to believe that politicians ever have an original thought?

    Lamble is missing in action from this forum as far as I know. So, he cannot read your post. But I agree with your comment.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.

    Finally!

    Gail, from the other side of our capital building



    This was Thanksgiving morning 2010. I'd put the turkey in the smoker and geared up for a ride around town. Was a great morning for it. Traffic was almost nil. I pulled up onto the sidewalk and parked. State street was empty as I crossed. But as I turned around, fumbling to get my phone out of my pocket to snap the picture, here comes a city police car, who stopped about 15' to my left. I expected him to tell me to move it. Instead he just smiled and waved and mouthed "Go ahead, I'll wait." And he stopped other cars coming as I snapped a couple pix. The whole thing probably took 30 seconds.

    If you ever want a tour of the inside when you're up around here during the work week, drop me a note. My office is on the 2nd floor off to the left!

    Fondly referred to by the locals as "The Penis on the Plains". As the tallest building around, it can be seen from scores of miles outside of the city.
