A river runs through it....

And everyone talks about how the mighty Mississippi is so large and wide.

But, here is a view of the little old Columbia river looking north from Oregon to Washington.

Yes, that is one river and the mountain range you see way in the distance is truly Washington state.

And we have killer Seagulls that will take on anything in their path.

Pretty up there. Gulls are nasty little birds, and they fly!

PS: We always knew when the first snow was coming when I was a kid, because seagulls would flock onto the playing fields in back of my high school. They'd move inland, and we were like 20 mi south of Lake Erie - and yes, the Great Lakes have seagulls (and NO, you can't see Canada on the other side; it's a very big lake).

Sometimes a quote comes along that really fits the way you think and live. This is one of those quotes, and the best part is that it comes from my DW. When you spoil you kids with love and a learning environment, no problem. I do believe that some parents do really take care of their kids and teach them to be strong non-whining adults that work to support themselves and intern teach the next generation to do the same.
