In Seattle

The bluest sky you’ve ever seen, in Seattle.
And the hills the greenest green, in Seattle.
Like a beautiful child
Growing up, free and wild.
Full of hopes and full of fears,
Full of laughter, full of tears,
Full of dreams to last a year In Seattle.

When you find your own true love you will know it
By his smile, by the look in his eyes.
Smell of set pine trees in the air
Never knew a day so fair
It makes you feel so good to be alive
Look out everyone, here come the brides.

(Theme from "Here Come The Brides"
by Jack Keller, Hugo Montenegro & Ernie Sheldon)

It was 12-years ago, this week, that my, then-morning show partner, K.C. Jones, and I, went to Seattle, Washington.

Our radio station had done a contest where the winner could pick any destination served by a particular airline. He chose Seattle, and K.C. and I were supposed to go with him, but when it came time to actually take the trip, a few weeks later, he said that he could not go. K.C. and I still went and had a great time.

Here are a few pictures from that trip, including these of, and from, the Space Needle, probably Seattle's most famous building.
It doesn't really go into space.

from the Space Needle. Look closely and you can see the monorail track. You can catch the monorail, downtown, and it will take you to the Space Needle, and back.
