62 and Sunny

That is what awaited me as I returned home from a Thanksgiving holiday in Seattle...where the weather was neither 62 nor sunny. It was cold, too terribly cold for my California blood.

In fact, I was at a store buying some items a couple days ago and the woman at the counter asked to see my ID. (Sadly I was still using my Oregon ID at the I have my CA driver's license, I promise). And she asked if I was new to the area or just visiting. I avoided a long story and told her I was new to the area. She asked if I was enjoying the weather. I answered, "As a matter of fact, yes! It's just perfect!" She replied, "It's nice, but has been pretty cold lately." At 62 and sunny, I guess she has California blood too.

Owen was not a lion.
He was not a flying Elvis.
And he was not a Guitar Hero.
He was a turtle. A very cute turtle.
