I just heard on NPR that there is a move to ban smoking on the coastline of Oregon - on the actual beach. We've come a long way, baby. I remember ash trays in grocery stores and people using the floor for the butts instead. I remember getting yelled at once while waiting in line to pay for cigarettes. I was probably 14/15 at the time and the lady behind me in line was really upset because I was buying cigarettes made in Virginia instead of our home state of North Carolina.
Probably because of the 40 years I smoked cigarettes, I no longer have the lungs to smoke the now legal weed. Now, that's fitting punishment, I think.
I am off to the Bellevue Art Museum fair today. The sun is out which would normally discourage me but it's still cool enough to go and I do have a new sun hat. And, if it's too hot, I can just come on home.
