Just Another Life Update…

September 20, 2010


I must say that Portland’s weather suits me. I love the rain. I don’t think I loved the rain in other places because it wasn’t set against a backdrop of Pacific North-West foliage and the giant furs that seem to be everywhere. When it rains a steady cloud of mist ascends through the forests and […]

a great find!

On my way home, about a week ago, from selling back the plastic, cans and bottles from our house I saw a sign for an estate sale only a street away from my house. It was raining, as usual, but I felt an invisible urge to check things out, and having just made $3.75 from […]
