I’ll do my fryin’ in the rain

Grilling up some burgers in the Portland rain… and creating our own tiny rainclouds while we’re at it.

The flip-floppin letters above the soda fountain at the Collector’s Mall shop in Milwaukie are pretty great!

I don’t know why it took us so long to drive over to Smith Rock State Park… but I’m so glad we finally made it. The view was phenomenal! We brought our city bikes thinking they could handle some of the ‘easy’ trails… but they couldn’t. So we just walked around and gawked at all the rock climbers.

In the evening we stayed at an AirBnB in Bend. There was an incredible sunset [not pictured] and we ate while enjoying a view of tubers floating lazily down the Deschutes River. Wow!

Hooray! I have the WordPress app on my phone again. So I can publish phone pictures of silly things I see on the street… Before I forget about them. SWAK

Harvest 2016

Harvest 2016

Lots of breakdowns (and a FIRE) but it was still great to be part of the Jochim Farms wheat harvest in MT. Everything was bittersweet as it’s the last year the farm will be operated by my family. However, three cheers for Dad’s retirement and also to over 100 years of truly amazing work on the farm.
