Do something about taxes!

Real Estate Agent

Everyone likes to complain bout taxes. Yes? (Who said No! Now is the day for you to get a job and start paying them.)

My question:

How many people really do something about taxes? Who can say "I made a Stand!" "I let my voice be heard!"

And who can say "I did it with grace, humor and I respected my fellow human."

I have no clue...

I don't even know if it is possible.

(In fact, if you start talking taxes at me I am likely to cringe in horror, my eyebrow will raise, I will slowly start backing away and will make a really clumsy excuse to leave the conversation area.)

But that is beside the point. Actually, all those questions are rhetorical. I don't actually care.

My POINT was that I needed to go blah-blah-blah for a bit so I could post this picture:

I hope it made you smile :)

If you would like to see if in real life, you will need to visit Shelton Washington and have a scoop of ice cream at this place:

Olympic Station Bakery in Shelton WA


The Olympic Station Deli, sister shop to the Olympic Bakery near Spencer Lake.

This newish location is on Hwy 3, right in downtown Shelton.

I recommend the always amazing and delicious Olympic Mountain Ice Cream

This is the same amazing, foodgasm inducing treat I went on & on about at this other blog post.





look for this sign for a delicious deli & bakery & ice creamery in Shelton WA

And don't forget to have a cup of coffee, maybe a fresh rugelach. You will definitely need to pick up some freshly baked sourdough rye. And maybe an eclair for the road?


And of course a laugh at the 6 foot tall pig.

Because no matter your political leanings, it sure strikes a certain note.

And all we can really do is grin and bear it :)

Great post Sarah.  I have been to this ice cream establishment.  You are right.  Very, very good.  And yes, there always seems to be something interesting or something to make you chuckle or smile in Shelton.
