Lire in a Box

Mark and I went out and bought him some good walking shoes.
Someone approved of the purchase.

Mark had to check this out for himself.

If you come to the Vander House resident,
and put out an empty box,
the box will be filled with a cat before you know it.
Trust me.

Tom in Portland

Tom came up for a visit. 
We went to Portland to eat food and drink beer.

I decided to try something different.
Very different.

I decided to try the Champagne of the North.  It's so tart that they include some fruit syrup with it so you can cut the tartness.
I have to say I liked it without the syrup, and with it.  Different....


We walked off our beer and food.  Tom wanted to go to Portland Market.
We went to Portland Market.

We even had some blue sky.
Loved that!

Much walking was done.
Fun was had.

Walking in Portland

One Sunday morning we met up with friends Janet and Carl and went for a walk in Portland.

Mark got to see a train!  He likes trains...
After much walking we went out for breakfast.
I love the note 'put a fried bird on it!' in the menu.
And it was a great breakfast.

More walking was done.
We found the statue that our ex-mayor did a 'expose yourself to art' poster.

Okay.  I couldn't resist.......

The Shamrock Run

Last month I traveled on down to Portland and took part in the Shamrock Run.  Or in my case 'walk'.

Folks tend to dress up for the event, so I decided my hair from 'Queen's Day' in Amsterdam would fit the bill.  It matched my shirt: very stylish.

Beer.  Always a winner. But the lines were too long, so no beer for me....

I love Portland!
Mark came to pick me up afterwards and we walked through town and got some lunch.  Nice way to spend the day!
