I know what you're thinking; "whatever happened to those crazy kids who drove across the country the day after Christmas?" Right? I mean, that is what you're thinking, is it not? No? Huh. Really? Damn.
Well either way, we (Honey Bunny, me, Clyde the truck and Viola and Kenny the cats) now reside in our favorite stomping grounds, Portland Oregon, aka Stumptown, the Rose City. We live in a great little house with a swell backyard that we get to garden in (so far I built the compost bin and Emily has gathered most of the wood for the beds) and we had a roommate briefly (less than a week and then she split with her cats, not sure why) and I've got a steady job and ride my bike to and from work and I get to play D&D every Sunday night.
Good stuff if ya ask me. And you did. Above you see the extra cats in this catpile.
This is our house as viewed from the rear. I aspire to paint some of the trim 'cos right now it's a bit plain for my taste. Not complainin', just sayin'.
One of the advantages Portland has over most of the rest of the US is the winters are fairly mild, so flowers and cabbage and grass are all still hanging around and daffodils and other bulbs are startin' to jump out of the ground.
I took a whole series of weird photos of me around the house, supposedly to show the house, but they really just show how weird I am. For instance the above photo is the least creepy of the lot, and shows our big, but weirdly designed, kitchen in all of it's natural light beauty.
More later. Until then check out These Two blogs for more about Portland.
