Silly me. We thought we might fool a few cats into guessing I was back in Alaska, but Cory came by and got it right away. Cory said, “You are in Roslyn Washington!!!” Then both Cory and Laila and Minchie said, “A souvenir and gift shop in Roslyn, Washington. The building became famous worldwide as the fictitious office of Dr Joel Fleishman, the leading character on the critically acclaimed television series Northern Exposure, from 1990 to 1995. The Northwestern Mining Co. period sign located above the door, and Dr Joel Fleishman’s name inscribed in chalk paint on the window (as seen in the opening credits of the program) remain to this day.”
This was apparently a quote from another website. It certainly says far more than I know!
On their way back from visiting their steer (one quarter of which now resides in the freezer in the garage) the Male wanted to stop through Roslyn thinking that people would have forgotten Northern Exposure. Like many famous shows, obviously there are many who still remember and love the show!
Gypsy and Tasha got it and so did Simba. Simba gave me the address, “The address of where you are is 112 West Pennsylvania Avenue, Roslyn, WA. Good for Google, because otherwise I would have guessed you were in Alaska.” The Carolina Cats also recognized where I was!
Alas for Mao, “OMC. My woman started humming some tv theme song when she saw this pikcher. Make her stop before my eerdrums ixplode.” I feel for you. My human sometimes does horrible things like that.
Fortunately for me, we do not have any TV reception hooked up here so I do not have to listen to dumb TV show themes. On the other hand, I am also clueless about things like this gift shop place. Nobody here has ever seen Northern Exposure or knows what it was about or who was in it or anything!

Momma never watched that show, so we never could have gotten it. But YAY for Cory being super smart! Again.
We always knew Cory was darn smart!
The Island Cats says
Good for Cory!!
I seem to miss your Friday find. I am not good at this anyway. I am wondering how you get around soooo much? Does your mommie even know that you are out and about?
The Florida Furkids and Angel Sniffie says
