What else is a girl supposed to take pictures 0f 0n Thanksgiving Day? There’s food… and there’s… food.

Terri cut up the bird. She did a fine job. I do have to say my honey assisted by forking. It’s an important job… forking. Shouldn’t ever be underestimated.

Where’s The Dip?

Steve makes a fantastic bean dip. He told me the secret. Cheese from Spain. To that I say… Grathias Steve!

Lisa cooked a mean turkey. It was delicious. I say two thumbs up for the briney goodness.

Ah… Mimosa

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.”

Wine with your cookies?

I bid on the jar of peanut butter cookies that’s behind this jar of snickerdoodle cookies. I didn’t win. I did raise the bid though by continuing to bid up for a time. At least I can feel good about getting them more money. Even if I didn’t get to enjoy these tasty looking treats.

The Gallery

I donated three photographs to the auction hoping to get them some cash. They ended up going for about $170 total. Not bad. Please ignore the creepy reflection of the woman in picture one, looking from left to right. I don’t know her.

The fundraiser we attended was a luau. Pretty fun, as well as fund raising. The food, as you’d expect… Hawaiian.

Confident

On September 12 we went to a fund raising dinner and auction. Mary and Martin went with us. This is the hand of the woman who is the director of the facility the fund raiser was for. Her cup said confident. I think that’s fitting.

People were really enjoying the sounds of Sneakin’ Out yesterday at Colonel Summers Park in SE Portland. These two were great. So much fun to watch. You could tell they were having an awesome time.

Mandolin

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.

Bass

This guy isn’t only talented, he’s incredibly entertaining. He loves playing music, loves what he does. He’s constantly movin’ and groovin’ to the sounds as they are playing. Really wonderful.

Percussion

The Sneakin’ Out percussionist. He’s unbelievable. So talented. Plus, the guy plays a mean typewriter. I’m not even kidding. Check out the shot, at the left, in the middle of the frame. Yep… a typewriter.

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.

Hats Off To The Colonel
