Response to Pretzel_Warrior (Original post)

85. I moved to Spokane in 1977

Before that I've lived in DC and the UK. I was surprised at the almost total absence of black people, but was pleasantly surprised at how nice we were treated. (interracial). I remember at one point joking to my friends back home, 'It seems like there's only black person here, and he's the mayor'. lol.

Spokane has really grown. I remember riding over the Sullivan Road bridge on my horse and my son on his pony!

I moved deeper into the red zone almost 30 years ago. But still in the 5th. We've retired from politics now, but were very active for a while in the 5th.

The Steam Plant and Grill in owned by some very nice liberals and is a good place to eat. I found The Spokesman Review's political reporter, Jim Camden, to be dishonest and stopped subscribing years ago to the SR when he wrote bullshit about my husband and all other Democrats.

Spokane is a pretty nice place to raise kids.
