Sailed The Ocean Blue, My Ass

We've been hanging around the East Coast for a while, but Ed was finally lured out west by a load he couldn't resist.  I took a picture of the Space Needle for you.  See it right there?

We expected to deliver our load today but guess what?  It's a Federal holiday.  No one is working.  It's hard enough to keep track of days in general on the road, let alone the not-so-major holidays.  Like Columbus Day.

And speaking of Columbus Day...

I read this about Christopher Columbus today.  It expanded on this, which I posted last year.

I've gotta say, I'm liking the idea of "Kids Who Are Changing the Planet" Day.

MY NA FRIEND: You're welcome!! It should be on the front page of every paper. There's so much real history brushed under the rug, it's shocking. Oh - and I was just talking about you the other day - I had the whole Indian/Native American/American Indian talk with a friend of mine and you came up. :) If your ears were ringing, that was me.
