Autumn beckons quietly around here now that we are pulling out of that horrible drought. As I type this it is a stunning September day and I’m wishing it would last forever. {{I’m trying to absorb all its benefits through the windows.}} As crabby as I was for the Daughters... Continue reading

Honestly, it took forever to get these photos posted. I snapped them on Father's Day/Summer Solstice when we went for a bike ride in Champoeg Park (pronounced "sham-poo-E") and could not get them to upload to Typepad for the life of me. I also tried to get a shot of... Continue reading

Graduates of the Class of 2015 file out of the gym and onto the football field for their big moment. Photo credit: Newberg Nation. Oh, dear. The Daughters; they are exhausted. We are all tired of this business called “high school.” It should really be renamed “high stakes” because that’s... Continue reading

English vs. Western? Must we discuss this again? No. I don't believe we will be needing the hounds today. That is all. You are released. Continue reading

This is my favorite place on the Oregon coast. It's one of those towns that isn't a big touristy hub, but there's enough to explore that every time you visit you have some choices. The Daughters always enjoy the tide pools. It never gets old. Tiny schools of fish, anemones,... Continue reading

Well, of course, film-wise there is Emma Thompson and Colin Firth in the fabulous "Nanny McPhee" movie (#1, not #2) and it goes without saying, Disney's "Mary Poppins." I don't know how the books are, but I know some people who loved them.

Feeling WAY better, Lisa. Thanks for the get well wishes. Whatever I had was a real doozy. Hope you all are staying healthy down there.

"In Joe we trust, all others pay cash." You gotta love this guy! VP Joe Biden at Salt and Straw in Portland, Oregon, late 2014. Photo credit: The Oregonian. So I’m lying on the couch feeling horribly, horribly, horribly sick and beyond repair and wondering when good grief are my... Continue reading

Spring is in full force here and it's a month early. The trees are confused. The plants are confused. And the animals' coats are confused. There's a whole lot of shedding going on. Still we squeeze in as much riding as we can, even if it still has to be... Continue reading

We took a detour to an unbeknownst-to-me, highly sought after local event called The One Motorcycle Show. I’m not a bike aficionado so I’m sorry/notsorry to admit that I didn’t know what the heck I was going to. Apparently there were people there that actually traveled from out-of-state to see...

This dark and lovely gif by artist Nancy Liang* perfectly depicts the rain storms we've had running through the Portland area the past two days. As I type this it's still howling like a banshee out there. Last night it sounded like the whole house was going through a car... Continue reading

It’s been hard finding a chance to write. Things come and go in this business of “life,” but some things are constant. This dog of mine is a constant. He’s aging. He’s in his twilight years. His back hurts from all his intense, athletic activity in his younger years, which... Continue reading

Alternating between a heavy fog in the valley that rolls slowly up the hills and brilliant winter sunshine — it leaves a person not knowing quite how to procede. Continue reading

"I saw a crow building a nest, I was watching him very carefully, I was kind of stalking him and he was aware of it. And do you know what they do when they become aware of someone stalking them when they build a nest, which is a very vulnerable... Continue reading
