Matty has joined me here in Sammamish as he lollygags his way through retirement. I have already introduced him to many of the regions culinary delights – the free Krispy Kreme donut as you wait in the queue, the Gyoza and Chicken Teriyaki combo special and dessert in the Cheesecake Factory.
He’s been up the Space Needle, through the Experience Music Project, swam with dolphins at the Aquarium (well – looked at a few salmon through the 2 foot of murky glass) and made a daring solo trip by bus to the city. Included here are some photos of the bould Matty in various poses at some of the areas premier tourist traps.
Tune in next week for a report on Matthew and son’s adventures in the Nevada desert – fraught with eminent peril but with engaging excitement around every corner, except that there are no corners – it’s all just desert and the casinos don’t have corners so you can’t find your way out until you’ve gambled away your last quarter on a Price is Right slot machine and are dragged kicking and screaming by robust and persuasive Polynesian mercenaries masquerading as security guards – but I digress.
