> This advertisement, or poster, was among five dozen or so U.S. “classics” I enjoyed this week, courtesy of msn.com. No details, but I would guess the poster dates to the days of fuel rationing running up to/through World War II. And I thought Hitler references in today’s campaign season were a new concept: “Want to know what Hitler would say on that issue? Just ask my opponent!” (Editor’s note: Keep that remote handy, finger hovering over the mute button. If you need to know how to vote, just give me a jingle).
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
