What else is a girl supposed to take pictures 0f 0n Thanksgiving Day? There’s food… and there’s… food.
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.
We wandered over to the Mississippi Avenue Street Fair yesterday. Which, actually, wasn’t the main plan, but we ended up there. The actual plan was to meet Mom and Don over at Steph and Phil’s place to take the pressure washer, chainsaw, baby gate, and live animal trap we’d borrowed from them over the course of the last couple of years… or more, back to them. This is what happens when cleaning out the shop and garden shed become a priority. Finding things you forgot you had, and had borrowed. Oops.
We dropped by Steph and Phil’s place, Mom and Don showed up fresh from picking up Brian at the airport, and we all, including the pups, headed down for Mississippi Pizza (Brian had to have a slice immediately after getting into town and before Mom, Don, and he headed out for Davis Lake to do some camping and fishing) after unloading the goods we’d brought. Mississippi Pizza, owned by Phil and Steph, has become a Portland hot spot. Great pizza, excellent funky ambiance, and cool music of one sort or another almost every night. in fact… any musicians out there in the family should consider contacting their booking agent. You don’t get paid, but you do get to charge a cover, and it’s a funky cool place to play. Just saying…
