    Really, now. Duvall today is really a theme park based on the real Duvall that once was.

    Well, you have a point, Richard. But, and there is always that pesky but, Duvall the new, does not have rides, like the Big Wheel.

    Not sure
    What's a theme park without a mascot? Who would you choose to represent Duvall?

    Talking about Thai Restaurants. We used to have one here in Dillon. But it went out of business due to lack of customers. Chinese does a little better here. Farmers don't take to Thai food like the flat lander's do

    You need more Washingtonians to come visit you.

    All this talk about Duvall got me to thinking about visiting sometime. So I asked Mrs. Salmo if she'd like to switch our spring vacation plans from Maui to Duvall. We are using a time-share exchange for the Maui stay, so she's looking on the interwebz to see what time-share exchanges might be available in Duvall. There doesn't seem to be anything available for early April though.

    That's high season. Come back when all the tourists are gone.

    I was recently introduced to the Oriental delights of Duvall. For a small town, that hamlet has a lot of Seoul.

    Yeah, looking into that. Bummer on the time share.

    My suggestion is to stay with the Maui thingy for now and check back later to see what is available. Perhaps, a three bedroom top floor condo overlooking the sparkling Snoqualmie river and Fred's sheep farm next door. Rates will not be as favorable as Maui's but the aviance is excellent. Travel time from SeaTac is a lot less also.

    I have a spare shed bungalow that I would be willing to time-share. Its an addition attached to the pump house so fresh water and electricity is assured. It is a few miles outside of Duvall proper and offers a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Duvall. Within easy walking distance of the famous round-about where you can setup lawn chairs and enjoy the confusion from a comfortable distance.
    Let me know.
