We just got home from Seattle at 9 and I am still uploading my photos, so I am going to be like the local news and give you a "tease".

Almost everything that could go wrong on this trip did, except for losing the game or having somebody injured.

And a story so I don't forget:

When we go to BIS, Mr. ID does some of his Christmas shopping in Seattle. He told me on the way home that he had been complaining to a Seattle store clerk that I am so hard to buy for, because I don't wear anything but Zag gear. She replied, "That's OK, since it's Gonzaga. If it had been UW, it would be a different story!"

LMAO :lmao:

Looking forward to the photos. Saw Mr., Idaho in the lobby at Motif (walking the dog it appeared). I meant to go introduce myself but had my hands full of Starbuck's coffee for the family and elevator arrived.

GO ZAGS!

Here goes with the adventure!

When I called the Red Lion on Cyber Monday to take advantage of their special, they told me the hotel we always stay at for BIS was no longer a Red Lion, so I booked a Room at The Red Lion in Renton, which is 2o minutes away. I told the agent that we would have our 3 dogs as usual, and was not told that the pet policy was any different from all the other Red lions we have stayed at. ($20 pet fee for the stay and no limit on number of dogs.)

When I went to check in in Renton, he informed me that they had had a one dog limit, and the cost would be $15.00 per pet per night. He said that they were a franchise and the owner sent the rules. I was upset that corporate booking had not told me what their policy was. He said he would make an exception for the three dogs, but the charge would be $90 for the two nights. I began to get a little angry, and started thinking fast. He got upset that I was upset, so I decided to go online, find the hotel we had always gone to, and book it. I had to sake him for a code for the wifi--obviously all Red Lions are not equal--they usually don't have passwords.

So I googled downtown hotels in Seattle, and came up with the new name, which mercifully had formerly a Red Lion in its description. I had figured that that it would be easiest to find the one we have gone to for several years. I booked on line and we left. We had arrived at Renton at 7,m but by the time we got to the hotel--now the Motif--it was 8:30. After checking in and feeding the dogs, we were eating dinner at 9:30 in the restaurant. The only good part was we got to watch a little of the Lakers on TV and see Rob play.

The next morning, Mr. ID went our Christmas shopping and I stayed at the hotel and biked in the fitness room. About 1, I walked down to Pike Market and bought some holly and mistletoe.

At 4 we started heading for Key Arena. I say started, because when we went to leave the garage, our room key card would not open the gate. We had to go up to the lobby, wait for the guy to come down and open it. It took about 20 minutes, so we were running late. We got lost on the way to Seattle Center, so we didn't get there until well after 5. On the way, one of the dogs was sick in the car, so Mr. ID had to park and clean things up, while I wandered around Seattle Center in the dark, trying to find the exhibition hall. It took over 20 minutes.

When I got to the door, I could not find the $20 bill I thought I had in my purse, so I gave the guy $8.00 and told him that Bob Finn would tell him I was good for it.
I saw Bob right after walking in, and he said no problem.

We left the arena and went across Seattle Center to the parking garage across the street. There, our misadventures continued.

When Mr. ID turned the key, nothing happened. One of the dogs had turned on the four-way flashers, and the battery was dead.

He called AAA, then talked to a policeman who said the garage staff had emergency services. Great! Except he either did not know how to charge it or his portable charger wasn't strong enough. He said our battery was probably totally dead. Mr.ID had already canceled AAA, so he called again--an hour to 2 hour wait.

So we sat there until AAA came about 12:00 midnight. What a drag!

He plugged his charger in--magic!

I asked him if we should buy a battery before we tried to drive home. He said if we had time, we could let it run 15 minutes, and he would run some tests.

We did, he did, and the tests showed the battery was OK.

So we drove back to the hotel.

Of course--another hold-up--the gate was down for the parking garage. The guys behind us went up to ask what to do, and were told there was another key card slot outside the gate. So Mr. ID tried his card, and it worked (there was a guy working on the machine inside the garage, so that must have been the problem when we tried to leave).

Mr. ID went to the room to feed the dogs, and I went into the Pub to try to get something to eat. All they were serving was appetizers, so I bought some mini Yorkshire puddings with beef and gravy. I took it up to the room, and we ate. It was 12:45 AM.

Of course, after such a day, we didn't sleep right away--it was 2 before we got to sleep. We woke at 11:00 AM!

I dressed and went down to ask for a late check-out. Fortunately, the young woman at the desk had checked us in on Friday, and she was a GU grad. She was very sympathetic to our issues, and said sure, we could check out at 1:00 PM.

So we got ready, left at 1 and drove home without any further delays or problems, and got home about 8:30.

It was more of an adventure than I like to have--I am very fond of uneventful trips!

Not a great pic, but I love seeing the players interact with the Few and Lloyd kids (and young fans, too). It's like they all acquired a whole new set of siblings.

Nope!

I always say we have one too big (the Lab), one too small (the Pomeranian), and one just right (the Peke-a-Poo). ( Went downstairs, so I fixed it.)

Just realized this might be a dig at U-dub! Cant blame it on the huskies. think the sickness was due to someone finding a 4th of a butterfinger. And our lab has a way of bouncing around and turning lights on and off. We were on the Alaska State Ferry and he turned the lights on 3 times. He figured out if I bounce here, Daddy comes down--because the ferry folks don't want our battery to die.

Here's a tip: next year walk a couple blocks from that same hotel and ride the monorail to Key Arena. Cheaper than parking, faster than driving, fun, and no risk of a dead battery.

The monorail station at Westlake was just north of the hotel where you stayed.

We have done that once, but we really don't like to leave the dogs for the 5 or 6 hours, especially in a parking garage with a lot of gas and exhaust fumes. Plus Mr. ID stays out and walks them after the social and comes in just before the game, while I (usually) walk the concourse. This way they get maybe a half hour in the car, then a walk, then 2 hours in the car. Usually (not this year) we get there early enough where we do not have to park in the parking garage at the Seattle Center.

We are going to have to figure out how to cover the buttons so they can't get to them. We did that with the motor home for the ferry.
