    Spending quality time with our friend while her broods went to Vacation Bible School, it was a nice break from the road, having the world fly past your eyes.

    After picking up her broods from the VBS, our friend thought we would be interested in checking out the quaint, little antique (historic) town of Snohomish (interesting name, isn't it?). Before creeping into the lil downtown, Bart and Alynn witnessed an eye-popping, jaws-dropping moment. While the front passengers chatted away, Bart and Alynn were observing the world outside. Before our eyes, an accident occurred. I kid you not!! A small 80's red sports car failed to yield to the black Nissan SUV for the Nissan had the right of way and tried to swerve to avoid hitting the Nissan. It succeeded in avoiding the Nissan but failed to avoid the ditch on the opposite side of the road, soared into the air while creating waves of mud and rolled over, landing on its roof. The passengers and driver of the Nissan was unharmed. It is believed that there were two people in the sports car and it appeared as if one got out with no obvious injuries. Among many others, the scene were watched as the rescuers did their job. Luckily, a fire station was nearby, only around the corner! It was as if a movie was played live before our eyes! Bart, who is only 9 yrs old, was in awe and filled with wonder!

    To put this behind us, Snohomish was visited by our perky group and dinner for the broods was picked up. We returned home and come evening, old friends in the area from our college years came over. Oh, how nostalgic moments we had, recounting the stories, laughing about our days of experiences. It was great spending moments with Michael and Nancy Bloomfield! As time goes by, more of our peers are settled with careers, marriage, and/or children. Alynn and BS are a rare breed, living in the life of singlehood!
