This morning I got up and brushed my teeth and hair and grabed a peach but I forgot to change out of my pajamas. I was already late for work so I was in a rush, I wasn’t thinking straight without my morning coffee. Going to work wasn’t a hassle considering it was only two blocks away. It was a good thing it was goofy pants day because my boss would be really mad if I did this on any other day. My boss Carl has these silly days like goofy pants day but my favorite is gummy bear day! I work at a hospital, I’m a receptionist. The sink in one of the restrooms is broken and has been for a week now but the plummer my dad has been working on it. The pipe started leaking then the weird noises and then… nothing, no water. After that, three other sinks did this too. This kind of plumming problems stresses my dad out, he’s seventy-nine. My nephew, hanson came to work with me today and asked if he coud help with my dad and I let him, I don’t know why I let myself do that! Hanson was tightening the hose clamp and my dad went to one of the other bathrooms. Hanson was a bad boy and loosened a pipe and shoved some of his own gummy bears in it then re-tightened it. Two days later was gummy bear day! “Finished” said my dad from under the sink. Carl ran to the restroom and said “It’s an emergency!” so my dad stepped out and said through his long greasy beard “How is work go…” he was interupted by a loud high pitched scream. Carl opened the door and pointed to a sink filling with gummy bears! “That’s a good way to celebrate gummy bear day!” I said under my breath.

Maria was standing outside Cosco at 4:16 waiting for it to open and finally, it did. Maria walked inside and got two pizzas for her, her husband George, and their three kids, Reed, Alexsas, and Claire. Maria drove to the school to pick up Reed and Claire in her pickup truck. When they got home Reed went outside to play with his friend Arthur and Claire had to clean her room but all Alexsas had to do was cry and screem. (she was three months old) Maria and George were tired so they went to bed. One hour later Reed burst into their bedroom coughing and yelling “FIRE FIRE”! They all ran out to the front yard with all the phones in the house! Soon they were accompanied by Arthur and his parents and finaly the fire truck came! They had to stay at Arthur’s house till they found a home. George found one online for $82,000.00 and it was beautiful! The driveway could fit six cars, the house was ginormous with six bedrooms and three bathrooms, each with a shower, the yard was two acres of beautiful green grass, and there was a built in swimming pool! There was even a HOTTUB! Click! The reason why it was so cheap was because they couldn’t get to it they had to buy a boat. They bought the house and a new truck to celebrate. They got a fishing boat and drove around town to find a marina. Claire spotted one and it was perfect! The boat launch was there. Maria asked George if she could do it and he let her. Maria had never even seen boat launching so she did it wrong. She drove her new truck right into the bay and the trailer was on dry land! Oops! Maybe George should have done it! Maria let George re do it and they met back at the house and spent the rest of the week building a bridge. They lived happily ever after in their new house.
One Friday night there was a very wet storm, thunder and lightning. Norm a twenty two year old loves dark places so he took his boots and and his coat and leaped out the front door. Norm got a cat three days ago, he doesn’t have a name for her yet so he ran to “Rooth State Park” to find a name. As Norm walked by the “Bench of Memory” he heard a faint chirp. Norm held his breath to listen closely and surely enough he heard that same chirp. Norm just new that it was a chirp of distress. Norm looked around and saw a small yellow baby bird under the bench! Right then Norm found a name for his cat, “Chirp”. He picked up the bird and realized two things, one, the birds wing is hurt, and two, he can’t return the bird! Norm went to a store to get a cage, a water bowl, and bird feed. When norm got home he went to his sock drawer where he keeps his emergency money. He took fifty bucks and headed to the vet. After three hours of waiting, a lady walked in the waiting room to interrupt Norm who was reading a book by Jake Dayton called “Catching a Cab” with his bird. “Thank you” said Norm, “your welcome, what’s your name?” “um Norm, and you?” “Mary”. Norm started to walk away and suddenly ” wait!”, Mary got her business card and gave it to Norm and said “call me at six”. Norm rode a cab home to find Chirp fast asleep with everything intact, that’s a first! Norm remembered the park. ” You are Rooth” said Norm. The bird’s name is Rooth. Rooth was in the cage and Chirp was in her bed, Norm bought to big of a cage so while Norm was asleep Rooth got out and flew to the kitchen! Rooth looked around and got some cat treats in her beak to get Chirp’s attention. Chirp followed Rooth to her cage and they went in it. Rooth went through and around to close the gate. Rooth sat on top of the cage that Chirp was in and started making sounds that woke Norm. Norm came out of his room and saw Rooth sitting on the cage and Chirp in it! Norm ran to get his camera, what a cat tastrophy!

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Elizabeth. She was a very strange girl. She loved knitting blankets, and grocery shopping, and reading the whole dictionary twice every day, but most of all, she loved making bets. She always won, and if she thought she would lose she didn’t take it. Her family was very wealthy so they lived in a house of 26,922 square feet along the waterfront. It was worth 148 million dollars. Her closet was the size of your average bedroom. Well, never mind all that, back to the main story. One sunny day in southern California, she was very bored so she went to the local marina to say hello to the fishermen. She loved hearing all there sea stories. She came down here often and talked to the same people but today, a new fisherman came to the marina. He had the ugliest, most beat up boat of all, and on the side it read “Taxi Charters”. Elizabeth, being herself, the friendly sort, went up and introduced herself before he had time to tie up. ” Hi, I’m Elizabeth, how are you”. He turned toward her and said ” Hello to you, I am Kaleb and I’m doing great”. He turned back, finished tying up the boat, sat down and asked “What are you doing on this fine Saturday morning”. ” Oh just talking to the ol’ guys”. After an hour of talking with each other she figured out he too liked making bets. They finished up and he ended their conversation with- “Well, I gotta catch a cab. Once I’m done I’ll go to the part store. My boat ran down, that’s why I’m here. But if my engine didn’t run down I wouldn’t meet you, so I guess its a blessing. Bye”. They lived in the quaint little town of Ruta Shores, so there weren’t any taxis driving around town so she responded with, ” Your not catch’n a cab around here”. He said, “You wanna bet”, and of course she took it. He waved and walked away. It was 8:00 pm so she returned to her house and went to bed. The next morning she woke up and went to find Kaleb. After 20 minutes of searching, she found him surf fishing on the rocky beach with his mooching pole, reeling in a big one. She walked up to him and he said, ” If I land this, I win the bet”. “What do you mean” she asked. He said, “I’m gonna catch a cab, like you told me too”. He pulled in the supposed taxi for 2 hours. He finally landed it. Elizabeth was surprised beyond imagination and for once she actually lost a bet.

Hey Guys, so we fixed the transmission and started our journey to San Diego and so far we’ve made it to Westport. We thought we would make it to San Diego in one trip but we were having trouble sailing and the wind died down. It took us two days in a row to get from Port Angeles to Westport. So we started the engine. When we were motoring, the boom broke where it connects to the mast. So we had to stop at Westport. Just before we got to the Marina we saw Sea Lions and a HUGE Orca Whale. My dad stiched it with metal eyes and rivets and JB Weld.
Westport is a very popular place to fish and there are a lot of charters there. We went to the gift shop and I bought a beanie and a baseball cap that has a hook on it and mesh in the back. Its very comfortable. We walked around the whole town, its not very big. We also went to the beach and watched all the waves crashing on the rock wall. I’ve had lots of fun.
After we left Garibaldi we set sail to Bandon and during that little trip we got to see some whales. It was crazy, they were all around us-(Orcas and Gray Whales). They got really close. It was Super Cool. We did a lot of experimenting, we used the jib and motor sailed, then just motored, then just sailed but eventually we dropped the sails and motored over night and docked at Bandon In the morning there wasn’t much to see and in the afternoon when we got close to Brookings, the waves started to get rough. I fell asleep but I was later informed that we docked and the Coast Guard yelled across the bay and asked for our documentation number and if my dad was Tim. Once that was all worked out. Sarah woke me up and I ate dinner and it is now the next day and we are in Brookings waiting for the bad weather to pass and then we will leave.
That all for now,
but until next time,

Hello, we have travled a long ways. We started in Olympia when my mom retired, we also had a party there. We played in the grass and ate food and drinks. After that we headed to Tacoma. There we had a big party where we played in the water, ate food and drinks, and had a bon fire! About two weeks later we headed over to Port Orchard. We met a few people there and we got fuel. Jake and I went for a row in our new old dinghy. On our way to Port Orchard we found a dinghy that was just floating out there so we got it and my mom likes it because it’s plastic, she calls it a tuperware boat. On the second day of our adventure we got fuel and went over to Bremerton because I got a coldstone icecream gift card for my birthday so we used it there. On the same day we started going to Kingston. In Kingston we got new batteries and closet rods for the shelves and my bed too. Jake and I went for a row in our new old dinghy. We spent the night and on day four we set out for La Conner. It took three tries to dock the boat becuase of the current and it took all day to get there ( we got there at night ). Early in the morning we left to go to Anacortes on Fidalgo island. My dad has a realy close friend and her name is Theresa. They are almost like brother and sister! Theresa has a son and his name is Patrick. So if Theresa is my aunt then Patrick is my cousin and his daughter Jordaya is my second cousin. Patrick has a wife named Cara and she has a son named Mason and he is my um second step cousin, I think. Anyway, Jake and I went to their house in Oak Harbor and spent the night there. We went to the pool, played games, and they even had a swing set too. We also played in their sprinkler. Cara is the best cook in the world, I love her food. There were two kids that they babysat and two girls that Jordaya knew from school. We had a lot of fun there. The next day, on the seventh day we headed over to Port Townsend and there were a bunch of pirate flags flying becuase it was pirate day. We went to another marina and we met a guy named Joe. Then we spent a night there. On the eighth day of our adventure we left to go to Port Angeles. The waves were huge and scary but I didn’t throw up. We got there and spent two nights. So on the tenth day we were going to Neah Bay but the transmision BROKE! So we had to call the coast gaurd on the radio to come tow us to Port Angeles and thats where we are right now. I hope we fix the problem so we can get to Neah Bay. We had a plan to go to Neah Bay and get fuel then start our two week journey to San Diego, except we already started in Olympia, we are just continuing from Neah Bay! Well, I hope you enjoyed. That’s all for now folks.
