An Indoor Menagerie

Just a couple doors down from The Salvation Army's Camp Gifford in Washington State (which I got to visit with a few new friends during last week's officers' councils in Spokane) is the home of Darrell and Joanie Rung, who were introduced to us by Kyle Smith, the Spokane Corps Officer. The Rungs's home is one of those lakeside houses with a long driveway and stone pillars at the entrance, which often prompt me to wish I could see the inside.

Darrell and his wife generously and graciously welcomed us into their home to gawk at its beauty. What a view they have. And what a beautifully designed and constructed home.

Even on this foggy, chilly day, the views were stupendous. Each lake-facing room boasted large windows with unobstructed views.

Most of our time was spent in the dining room/game room/trophy room, where Darrell has displayed some of his trophies from four or five safaris to Africa and Asia.

He had a story for every prize: elephant, zebra, hyena, lion, leopard, wild boars, antelopes, rams, and more.

It was a memorable visit with a kind and gracious couple. I expect to remember it for a long time to come.
