Name: Dawn
Location: Shelton, Washington

I've lived in Western WA most of my life (Auburn/Sumner/BonneyLake/Bremerton), with a couple "stints" in Connecticut (71-73) and Fairbanks (for two years from 75-77)

Favorite Quote: I'm a quote nut so I have lots of favs but one I really love is:

Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859


Nice again to "meet" everyone!

Hi, Dawn!  I've been to all those places!  Went to school in Auburn for a while and I lived in South Prairie and shopped in Boney Lake.   :Sparkletooth:  Have you been to Enumclaw?

I attended Pioneer Elementary in 6th grade (1971) and Auburn HS in 1975 (10th grade).  That town has gotten so crowded with Emerald Downs, the Supermall and the Muckleshoot Casino.  I remember Auburn WAY back, when people would ask "where's Auburn?"  LOL   How long ago did you live in the area?

Yes, and I lived in Enumclaw back when the radio and TV announcers didn't know how to pronounce it!  Let's see...  I lived in the Enumclaw area from 61- 80 then again from 91- 99.  Enumclaw changed a lot in the years I was gone.  It used to be such a hick town but now it is filled with million dollar homes and it is "like so cool" to live there while sipping a Starbucks!

I went to Auburn off campus for part off 77/78.  I was supposed to graduate in 79 but I didn't quite make it.   :Sparkletooth:

My name is Robert.

I'm from Charleston, SC.

I don't have a favorite quote off the top of my head, but I am a HUGE fan of Madonna, who has a lot of inspirational and empowering lyrics in her songs. Some of my favorite lyrics of hers that I can think of at the moment are "Express yourself, don't repress yourself," "I know the road looks lonely, but that's just Satan's game," "Beauty's where you find it," "When the lights go down and there's no one left I can go on and on and on," "First love yourself, then you can love someone else. If you can change someone else, then you have saved someone else," and finally "This is who I am. You can like it or not. You can love me or leave me. 'Cause I'm never gonna stop."

Hey Rose,

The band has a recent music video titled "Revolution" on youtube: "http://tw.youtube.com/watch?v=SuY4GcF7h7A", but it's not my fave, though. Another spiritually invigorating song "We Are Hungry" is as good, and you can feel free to check it here: "http://tw.youtube.com/watch?v=d7zqtynDWkY."

God loves you too.

Oh Jesus blessed me with reminding me of this about three minutes ago. I was sooo hoping it was on this incarnation of the boards, since we did have a couple of crashes in 2007 with the boards.  Oh thank You, Jesus!!  Oh Thank You, Jesus!!!!!
2008's the end of the wait  :cloud9: 


Don't particularly know why I blurted out the above.  Nothing conscious in my mind about the previous post that I'd made.  Nothing conscious about it at all, actually.  I just blurted that out in this post.
