I've been tempted to dig into this blog again. This seems like the time to start.
Our recently retired Ruston fire chief died last night. He was diagnosed with lung cancer just last month. The multitude who were touched by and loved Don Torbet, we are all in shock and heartbroken. I don't have words right now. Or enough pictures of these precious faces that have been a constant, deep part of the fabric of my life for over 30 years. Don was snatched away too soon. None of us were ready to let him go, not even close. Words will come later. For now only tears. Ruston, we lost a giant of a man last night.

A big THANK YOU to all of the kind neighbors we met today in Ruston, and especially to Ray for saving the day!!! I woke up this morning with the disheartening realization that even though my kids and I had somewhere to be in just over an hour, I did not have a car seat for my toddler. It had mistakenly been taken with our minivan to the car shop in Spanaway where the van was getting fixed. The kids and I took the double-stroller and started walking around Ruston on a mission to find a friendly neighbor who might have an extra car seat. We met many wonderful and kind people who took the time to check their garages, to walk with us to meet more neighbors, or to smile and offer advise. In the end, Ray saved the day when he pulled his recycling truck up to our house with a loaner car seat from the new daycare center, Stepping Stones Academy, who had one to spare! Thank you, Tierra, for offering that to us! I feel so blessed to be living in a small town (with the conveniences of a big city, nonetheless!) surrounded by such kind neighbors. With a car seat loaner secured, we made it to our scheduled activity (better late than never), and were able to drive to the auto shop to retrieve our toddler's car seat. Thank you all, again! Hopefully those of you who opened your front doors to us are reading this -- thank you, all! It was a fun adventure, and we look forward to seeing you all around town again.

We are very excited to have Wheel Fun Rentals join the Point Ruston family! They are going to make coming to the Waterwalk such a fun experience.
Check out what they're doing on Alki:
They are really interested in hiring solid, hard working kids with good work ethics. Over the years, they have hired and trained good kids that have learned great skills and even worked their way up the chain to managing and training employees, which all looks good on the resume in the future.
This is a great opportunity for a fun outdoor job. The info on applying is on the attached flier. Let's get some great people working down there!
