Jon Snow Crow went North to go fishing… far North. Beyond a great wall where he saw no other living soul. After an epic battle he conquered and caught a great big monster of a fish and brought it home. As soon as he got home he started getting these odd feelings. Aggressive crows lingered around the house and he felt like his prized catch, mounted on his wall, was following his every move. Was he going crazy? Had the cold winter clouded his perception?

Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.
Mo-“Crow”-ana, the strong-willed daughter of the chief of our Edmonds village partners with her very powerful friend Mau”scare”aui to sail off on a daring mission into uncharted Puget Sound waters. Accompanied by her pet pig “boo” Pua,

J P Patches “Mayor of the City Dump” was a local icon on KIRO TV starting in 1958. With ICU2-TV, Patches Pals enjoyed watching J P before and after school for 23 years. J P wore his signature tattered hat, red nose and colorful patchwork coat, as he played pranks on his guests and gave us some pretty great life lessons. Behind the nose, was Chris Wedes, who retired to Edmonds in 1990. An important part of our community, Chris gave his time and talents to the Childrens Hospital and MS Helping Hands until his passing in 2012.
