The Oregon adventure continues… part 6… Keepin’ it weird…

There is a story behind that one…

Look at me, relaxing at my daughter’s place in Portland.

That might be a little too relaxed. Someone make sure I am still breathing!!!

Stop taking pictures of me taking pictures.

Stop it!

Oh, it’s you, Jessica.

Cut it out.

Knock it off.

Mollie, did you take those pictures of your sister taking pictures of me taking pictures?

Why do I look so suspicious?

Me and Heidi, pure magic.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

And stop taking pictures of me using my Seek app to identify plants!

In retrospect, there isn’t much of a story behind that outfit after all. I admit the tie dye shirt and the camo sweat pants are mine. Jessica went on a work trip to Memphis, Tennessee, and with boots she bought for her and her sister, she could get a free pair, so I now own a pair of size 16 cowboy boots.

The Oregon adventure continues… part 4… The thing in the dark woods…

No, it isn’t Big Foot, or even Regular-sized Foot. It is my daughter’s boyfriend, Ben, helping me to learn how to use my night vision video binoculars.

Also, I should really change the date on the video tag.

Goodbye, my friend, I will miss you…

Okay, I didn’t really get that close to her.

But I have seen her and the Royal Family.

It was on her birthday, and as you can see, her husband was still alive.

As was she, obviously.

It was an exciting day, as she inspected the household guard units.

All joking aside, I will miss her.

The Oregon adventure continues… part 2… Mostly moss…

I have been using the Seek app on my phone, the one that identifies plants and animals, and there are a lot of kinds of moss.

The Oregon adventure continues… part1… Mount Hood…

We rented a small place on a little river, just a short drive from Mount Hood. Here is a view of the mountain from a lake we explored.

Gratuitous zoom lens!

There, that one has my daughter’ boyfriend fishing. You’re welcome.

This is the Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood. It was used as the Overlook Hotel in exterior shots in the movie “The Shining.” It was also where Mollie and I spent fifteen minutes on the floor in the lobby snuggling with Heidi, the Saint Bernard mountain rescue dog. More photos of her later.

I took that one from the car, but the sun reflections work.

A view from the mountain. That lake is down there somewhere.

Yup, there it is.

I knew I got a shot of the lake from this side.

See you soon!

Okay, fine, we have been in Oregon… as was pointed out by our good… and almost annoyingly-handsome friend, Tim…

Now, please sit back and enjoy the fish, courtesy of the splendid Japanese Gardens in Portland.
