Oregon is one of my favorite places to visit. My daughter, who
lives there, shared this enchanting video with me yesterday and I
had to pass it on. Portland, another reason I like Oregon.

Lorene, 81, and her brother, Johnny, 97, have been close throughout their

|Other than today's lunch, everything you see here is old. The pictures|
themselves are not. I took them while working outdoors today. I discovered
a setting on my camera that allows me to add a nostalgic effect to my pictures. I
wanted to see if it would also make me look older—hence the reflection in the third
photo from the bottom. Observation: The longer I look at the first photo, the more
it reminds me of an oil painting because of the richness of color.
|Untended wooded wildflower garden. Any sort of garden is an achievement|
for me since gardening does not come natural. I've managed to get a few
planted and I enjoy the end results but a personal gardener would be nice.
|Mouse House. Trust me, I know.|
|Halle is never bored, especially during a walk in the woods.|
|The park bench in the garage will soon be setting|
in its usual place in the wildflower garden.
