I can fly...

I am flying the coop again. New York city bound.
Elliott will no doubt be in some kind of kitten orbit while I am gone.
Hopefully the curtains will still be up when I get back! Posted by Picasa

I forgot to tell you I saw Jesus...

right around the corner from Beethoven right there in Bonn...
I think they droppped Jesus off while I was at Beethoven's Haus as a matter of fact. I am quite sure I would have noticed Jesus IN BROAD DAYLIGHT. Posted by Picasa

Happy Halloween

I bought this off a gal at the Alberta Last Thursday Art Walk.
Sorry about the reflection. Posted by Picasa

Sweet sweet boy

When he's not making me bleed or tearing the curtains down
he is very sweet and cuddly. He is growing like a weed as you can see.
His eyelashes are singed. He held his own furry candlelight vigil for Ted Kulongoski.
Get your ballots in folks. Posted by Picasa

Go Ted Go Ted GO TED Kulongoski

Put your money where your mouth is.
I sent Ted a whole $50 yesterday.
Not much in a whole campaign, I know, just a drop in the proverbial bucket.
I normally volunteer a zillion hours but the trade shows are piling up here.
So I will cheer and I will remind people to send in their ballots.
If they are voting for him.
Throw them in the trash if they are not.
I am lucky to live a pretty much Republican free life here in Portland.
Good thing...

Oregonians vote in the mail.
None of that Diebold bullshit here.

Who are you?

I saw this dude in Fred Meyers twice and could not figure out how I know him.
Now I have found him in my computer.
Who is he? Posted by Picasa
Bad, really bad photo. But that's him.

Oh, look! It's a DEMOCRAT in Salem!

Scrod help us...

Oregon needs Ted Kulongoski to win re-election.
I need Oregon to have Ted Kulongoski for Governor.
Where will I go if he loses?
Shit I can't handle another Republican in my life.
Jeb and George and the rest of the stinkin' lot of them have done me in.
Come on folks, get your ballots in.
Democrats into Salem.
Republicans in the trash.
Simple as that

While we are on the subject...

These were taken back in March. No leaves on the trees.
I am lucky, I have seen them almost every time I go out there.
They are Roosevelt elk. In the heat of the summer they spend a lot of time in the mountains but you can see them here in Spring and Fall. There is a program in place to feed them in the winter. I am going to volunteer this winter. Posted by Picasa

A few more from Secret Elk Road

Fall foliage and a herd of elk...

Went for a drive today to Vernonia and Mist and Jewell.
It was sunny and warm and the elk were glad to see us.
Hard to believe that humans actually drive out here and shoot these guys.
I shot them with my Lensbaby. Posted by Picasa

More from the corn...

These gals in the last one were on my side. Posted by Picasa

Children of the Corn

I was invited to go to the "haunted" corn maze last night. I was initially skeptical but it turned out to be fun. The funnest part was hiding in the corn and jumping out and scaring the hell out of people. They had staff members doing that also and we managed to scare a few of them. Posted by Picasa

I'm Rick James, Bitch

This is cracking me up all over again. I don't watch tv ever at all.
While in Germany I got turned onto a few clips from the Dave Chapelle show and I can't stop laughing...
This is a scream. Watch it.

For Linda and Hans

See you in February,

Gay congressman's spouse denied benefits
By STEVE LeBLANC, Associated Press Writer Tue Oct 17, 9:49 PM ET
BOSTON - Former Rep. Gerry Studds, the first openly gay member of Congress, was married to another man in Massachusetts at the time of his death, but the federal government will not pay death benefits to his spouse.
Studds married Dean Hara in 2004 after gay marriage was legalized in Massachusetts. But Hara will not be eligible to receive any portion of Studds' estimated $114,337 annual pension because the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act bars the federal government from recognizing Studds' marriage.

In the first one he is on top of the bathroom door. He climbs anything he can. Posted by Picasa
