I thought my mom might enjoy a little impromptu road trip and Sunday brunch today, so I picked her up and we headed out to Cathlamet, a little town on the Columbia River about 20 miles from here.
It was a pretty day, so after brunch at the Riverview we explored the area a bit. (Snapped that picture of the tugboat down on the riverfront.)
I think one of the best things about Cathlamet is its name. It's pronounced "Cath LAM it" so you can use it as a swear word.
For example: "I locked my keys in the car! CathLAMet!" -- or -- "CathLAMet! I told you to stop that!"
So feel free to use the town as an expletive next time you lose your glasses or stub your toe.
