Scone-Loving Author Searches for Treasure on Vashon Island – Needs Our Help!

The title says it all, and if you enjoyed some freshly baked Fisher Scones in the Thriftway parking lot this past weekend (October 7-8), then you already know all about it!

If not, perk up your eyeballs and read slowly – so you don’t miss a single clue. Yes, it’s true! The famed author of, “Memories of Mount St. Helens” recently regaled me with a story of a mysterious, jam-smearing, butter-loving, scone-devouring man in his 40s or 50s who – eyes flying left to right, as he leaned in close – spoke of a secret barn, covered in paintings of ancient, scone-baking islanders.

With a wail of woe, Jim Erickson admitted that he failed to ask the man’s name. This brings us to the purpose of this message, this entreaty, this plea, and Jim’s greatest hope: to find the epic barn and record the history of Fisher Scones, which goes back to 1911 and the Fisher Flour Mills. And he needs your help. Our help. Help, in general!

If you’ve seen these elusive, archaic writings and barn drawings, make Jim’s day and text him at 253-777-9499. I’m guessing you (and your stomach) will be well rewarded.
