Postcards for the Weekend #25
The theme this week for Postcards for the Weekend is "Gratitude." We're linking up and wish to thank Maria for hosting the meme. A search through our postcard collection came up two cards below. In the first card a young man has just been rescued at the beach by a young lady lifeguard. He has so much GRATITUDE for being saved that he asks her, "Will you save my life again tomorrow at the same time?" What do you think about that?

The tug appeared to be in a "testing" routine near Pier 91.
Although Seattle is on track to set a new rainfall record for the month of February, we've still had several interesting sunsets and other sky conditions.

|Screen shot of an App called Living Earth|
Note the stream of clouds from near the Equator
pointing, almost like an arrow, up to the Pacific Northwest.
This is called the "Pineapple Express" and gives
us large amounts of rain.

Closing Thought ...
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.
