Chris, our Hipster Dog Walker, is taking a break in front of BARC with a cup of Joe from Ladro and the dogs are lounging in the sun. He has to make some decisions between whether he becomes a walk-on for the Ferry or continues up the Hill back to class at EDCC, but for now its time to rest!
Whether he gets the “stuffing knocked out of him” on the weekend or the creaky aches and pains of “hanging around at work”, Mr. Ima Hurtt knows that he will always receive high quality care at Lynnwood Sports & Physical Therapy – Happy Halloween!!!

Samara is adopted by Anna and Richard Morgan, who own a horse ranch on Moesko Island, Washington. As Samara grows older, her powers burn horrible images into her adoptive mother’s mind, nearly driving her insane. Richard banishes Samara to live in the ranch’s barn, but she uses her powers to drive Anna’s beloved horses to suicide. At some point, Samara is taken to a psychiatric hospital but the doctors are unable to explain how she created the images. During a family vacation on Shelter Mountain, Anna attacks Samara as she stands before an old well, suffocating her with a garbage bag and then dropping her down the well.
