Found this old crate in the back of the #RusticRooster antique shop in #Olympia. A lil bit of history to house my older records. (Look closely— it’s an old shipping container bound for #Seattle. Canned tuna packed in “occupied Japan.”) #vintage

Pop-tastic. #Tennis — “I’m Callin’”

Had to stop and snap. Hometown fascination keeps growing. #downtown #olympia #generalstore (at Little General)
Brews ‘n brainstorming with Ms. PhuongChi. That’s not beer. It’s #coffee on tap. With nitrogen. Totally potent!  (at Olympia Coffee Roasting Company)
Every morning, I drive by these two flags. Always gives me pause. The one on the left represents #SouthVietnam. My family’s native country no longer exists. Alas, there she blows, high and mighty next to #OldGlory… #seattle #vietnameseamericans #vietnamwar #rainiervalley #southseattle (at Rainier Valley, Seattle, Washington)

A room like this used to hold at least 4 #immigrants, usually from #Asia. #wingluke  (at Wing Luke Museum)

From the #WingLuke’s top floor. Among the things I like about this pic: cool contrast between #Chinatown and #Seattle’s skyscrapers, to the right are apartments with laundry hanging outside and on the ground level is a group of old Asian men playing games around a makeshift table. To their right is a guy reading his newspaper. A few aspects of this neighborhood will never change, I hope.  (at International District / Chinatown)
The family association room at the #FreemanHotel, where countless #Asian immigrants first found refuge, friends and food. #wingluke  (at Wing Luke Museum)
