When I lived in Tacoma, I got involved in the "One on One" program at McNeil Island Federal Prison. You teach prisoners who have been incarcerated for a long time and about to be released, about living outside of the prison when they are released. They had a lot of Indian prisoners there. The prisoner I was assigned to told me that he got a Native American as a new cellmate one time. Before he would enter the cell, he did a dance and chant and blessed the cell before he would enter. The guard just stood there and waited until he was through. I thought it was weird. But the Federal Courts had ruled that it was part of their religion and they had the right to bless their cells. I remember one time when I was at the prison, I could hear all of the Native Americans holding a dance and chant of some sort. You could hear them all over the building.

Only two photos right now, I am on my laptop and I have not saved many photos to it. All the photos are on my desktop and it is not running properly right now. the first photo is of the newly laid bathroom tile floor and the other is of the kitchen, showing the range hood, custom cabinets and tile backsplash. The wood floor goes down starting Tuesday and will take about a week.

The kitchen and bathroom cabinets are made from vertical grain douglas fir. I think the interior doors and front door are also a douglas fir. I'll have to haul an interior door over to some cabinets and see how similar the stains are.
