What else is a girl supposed to take pictures 0f 0n Thanksgiving Day? There’s food… and there’s… food.
Thought I would put some shots from Thanksgiving out there. It was the last time, save for a trip recently to the store for supplies, I was out of the house. Thanks again Maggie, as always you put on a wonderful party.
This is Pat’s hand… holding a mimosa.
I spent Halloween, from 10-4 anyway, working at a children’s fair. Michael Curry, the amazing puppet guy from the Lion King and Olympics fame) had a display at the fair. His workshop is out near where we live. Pretty cool eh? Anyway… the fair is cool. I’ve worked there every year, save one, of the tens years I’ve been in my job. It’s a great thing. Love seeing all the kids and all the adults working the fair giving to the kids of the community. Our phrase to remember? “You can have one big bead, and as many little beads as you like.”
Sneakin’ Out is a local Portland Band that’s fantastic. We enjoyed listening to them yesterday during the Sundays Parkways event in SE Portland. This is the mandolin player of the trio. He’s amazing. I don’t know if I’ve ever heard anyone play as fast as he can.
After completing the Sundays Parkways circuit yesterday we rode back to the first park, Colonel Summers, to listen to a Portland band, Sneakin’ Out. We never miss an opportunity to see these guys if it’s possible to see them. They are, without question, of the most unique trios around… plus, they are damn good. These guys can play.
This band was playing some pretty peppy tunes as we crossed the finish line. Pretty satisfying to have completed it. Two and a half hours. Not bad considering all the stopping and gawking we did. What an awesome day! I’m keeping my friends and my sweetie’s confidentiality by not posting the photos of them dancing around to this band. They did, it was joyous, but the record of it is also pretty hilarious. We’ve all had a good laugh about those pics.
