Controversy aside, K and I are watching the Olympics. I can’t help myself. Neither can she. We watch, we get inspired, we feel the universal connection. And, we do our own commentary. Truthfully, we don’t just do commentary for the Olympics. It’s a nightly, daily, hourly occurrence in our house. But when the Olympics areContinue reading “Olympics Commentary, Our Way (Part 1)”
It’s a good day. Had a follow up ultrasound to check on the blood clots in my arm and hand and they are no longer there… yay! Also had blood work done today, normal Monday thing, and just found out I am no longer neutropenic. My platelets are up, and the other things are stillContinue reading “Neutropenic No More”
Bike Acrobatics Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl We spotted these guys hanging out and doing tricks down by the wharf. Talented group of kids.
Nike Wall of Names Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl Our friend’s name was on this wall. Took us a while to find it, but finally, there it was. Pretty cool.
Nike Women’s Marathon Originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl One of the reasons we went to San Francisco, and what really started our trip planning process in the first place, was that one of our friends had been picked, by lottery, to walk in the Nike Women’s Marathon. 13 miles… impressive. We went to Union Square withContinue reading “Nike Women’s Marathon”
Saddle Up, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Taken in Portland with the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT.
Pulling Out The Clubs, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Forgot to mention we went golfing on Wednesday after work, our first outing this year. We, neither of us, did that well. I haven’t even held a golf club since last September, and Karen hasn’t golfed, other than one round of 9 at a par 3 courseContinue reading “Pulling Out The Clubs”
61 to 32, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The final score of the game. “Our” team was the home team. Yeah… we were psyched by the win.
Nothin’ But Net, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. To go back, rewind if you will, our lives the last week or so, I have to go back to last weekend. As in the 27th and 28th of June. I already blogged about our fantastic bike ride downtown, complete with views of the bible and barq’s, onContinue reading “Nothin’ But Net”
Skating in London, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. As we walked along the River Thames we passed this very cool skate park. Massive, painted, and really cool.
Pugg, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The object of the game on Saturday. Actually, between you and me, I think the object was more about fun, good sportsmanship, mud puddles, and more fun.
Inside Al’s, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Actually, this photo makes it look pretty light in there, but it was darkish, lights along the lanes, pins that were lit as well. Almost like cosmic bowling. The huge screens played music videos the whole time, kinda cool. I liked the place.
The Chase, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went to a Portland Lumberjax game last Friday night at the Rose Garden. The LumberJax, for those who might not know, play lacrosse. Lacrosse is a game much like hockey, only there are no skates, no ice. It’s all running and running and hurling your lacrosse stick andContinue reading “The Chase”
Dibs?, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Another kind of arena action…. The Dibs Guy. As his button exclaims…. you get them for only $6.00. The nose scratch is gratis.
Action, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Loads of action during a lacrosse game. We’d never been to one before, but we liked it. Fast paced, constant movement, and fairly high scoring. Pretty fun. I think we might just go again.
Ready, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I golfed one afternoon last week with friends. I have a tournament coming up this coming weekend and we needed to take some of the rust off of our game. Not sure that happened, but we had fun anyway.
Beavers Baseball, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Last night we had the pleasure of going to a Portland Beavers baseball game. The good news… we won. The better news… it was a good game. The best news… a friend of ours, GO ERIC, sang the national anthem before the game. He was awesome, and I’m notContinue reading “Beavers Baseball”
Scrambling For The Ball, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Rugby always looks exhausting to me. Guys flying all over the field, constant movement, clashes of brute strength. It’s gotta be so tiring.
In The Thick of It, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The Falcons and the Hawks in action.
In The Thick of It, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. A little recap of the last few days events to follow…. Last Friday, June 27, Karen and I went to watch a friend’s (OK Shawn, this is your blog debut!! Woo Hoo!!) daughter, Saige, play in a basketball tournament. I used this picture because most ofContinue reading “In The Thick of It”
Reaching, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. So far it’s been a pretty good Saturday. An early rugby game at Delta Park, a stop by the vet to get some new flea stuff for Weston, a walk around Cathedral Park, and now some quiet blogging, surfing time. I believe we may be off to do the lastContinue reading “Reaching”
