Thought the CDN readers would be interested to hear that Ask.com plans to donate funds to fill wading pools at East Queen Anne, Powell Barnett and Wallingford. They are to be filled up on Saturdays throughout the summer. As to the reason why?
“We’ve shifted our marketing focus to a highly-targeted local strategy and Seattle continues to be a top market for us, especially when it comes to connectivity on mobile devices,” said Valerie Combs, a spokesperson at Ask.com. “We want to show the community a little love and while we can’t permanently do away with those 520 bridge tolls or promise more sunshine, we can make their days a little easier.”

Open Saturdays noon-7 starting June 30 and running until August 18. Big thanks to the CD’s Melissa Cate Christ for staying on top of the issue!
First of all, this is great news for our neighborhood – yay!
I must, however, say the following:
wad: compress into a lump or bundle
wade: walk through water or another liquid or soft substance
My first thought…why would anybody want to get into a pool full of wadding?
You guys are reading this all wrong. Wadding is used to hold the powder into muzzle loaded rifles and cannons. A wadding pool is a group of re-enactors that are learning to use old weapons.
