Spooky Town

One Halloween, when I was twelve years old and thought I was too old to trick-or-treat but still wanted to dress the part and prowl the neighborhood, I thought it would be a great idea to paint my face a dark emerald green that I chose from a watercolor paint set.

This turned out not to be that great an idea when it came to washing the color off, of course, and when she observed the aftermath of my attemps to scrub it off over the bathroom sink, my mother's face gained that second…

I was early for an appointment so I took a walk in the NE 9-15 and Knott area.  There were many fun photographs....  DSCF0550.jpg

Keep Your Bike!

I'm going off the path a bit this time around, to offer a cautionary tale-slash-public service announcement.  Because BOY am I hacked off!  (Actually 'hacked' isn't the word, but these are family-friendly pixels up in here.)

Art is good.  The following may not qualify.

Boy!  Portland certainly ranks right up there on the weird graph when it comes to some of the laws on the books!
