On Sunday, May 25, I went out to feed our horses and noticed one of our goats, “Mary,” lying on her side and all four legs flopping violently. Her eyes were rolled back and she appeared to be frothing at the mouth. I called the At Home Vet service out of Fall City, and he was here in 20 minutes. He asked what I wanted him to do, and I said I don’t want her to suffer, so euthanize her.

On a sunny March day in Snoqualmie, Doug and Kristin Walsh had no problem daydreaming about going on a long bike ride. That daydream may have gotten a little fuzzy now that they’re actually on that ride, fighting Montana winds on a blustery day in April, or cycling through snowdrifts in Minnesota in May, but the couple never seems to struggle with a loss of focus for long. On the surface, their goal is to ride their bicycles basically around the world, to discover amazing cultures, sample exotic foods, and see places they’ve only read about, in a trip they estimate will take about three years. There’s more, though; this trip, started March 23, represents living life in the right order, something the career driven 30-somethings have long aspired to.

“Do It Yourself” wasn’t a fad. It was a necessity in the Fall City of 100 years ago. Cooking, repairing your house, and living in general required skills that today are becoming lost arts. Fall City Historical Society takes visitors on a trip back in time to experience those arts at its downtown booth for Fall City Days.
