3 days in Portland this year? What the hell? No social calls? No bleary Lucky Lab ramblings late into the night?

You people just used me and dumped me. You picked my mind dry, you watched while I torched my brain cells with GumOut trying to get YOUR VWs running, and once I did, you all drove away laughing at my shorts, cocky in your new-found mechanical aptitude, Portland is a wasteland of long ago-withered kindness a spiritual desert, a ruined artifact of my prior gentle joy, the rain falls upon Portland as salty tears under which I watch my rapid dive into irrelevance, under which I view my impending death by despair with great anticipation so that I may disrupt all of your sleep with pangs of insomniac guilt at your feckless abandonment of the last true friend you all ever ever had . . . .

.. .. .. .. oh! so yeah, anyways where was I, oh yeah, Lucky Lab, Monday July 28th? You and Erin and me pizza night dump the lovely kid? some evening prior?

I like this date. Portland Pile-on? Hah! I've got my eye on it though.

7/26/14 could easily find me in Eugene, it's the night before the big Marathons. Cheryle's daughter Cedar, will be running. Third time I think. She's invited and her participation is financially facilitated. She places.

Hope it meshes.

Well Neal, I have an appointment with my seldom-seen-sluggo-subservient co-administrator on the 26th proper, it is written right there on the Itinerary, and a big job the very next day, so Eugene for me has to be more like the 24th if I am to survive with a functioning mind . . . a state becoming more rare by the day . . .

Eh, well, dreaming is good. But yes, cooler heads of logic dampen my fires of enthusiasm.

We are not here to dampen. We are here to execute "Plan B" and make things work (a daunting challenge as of this morning, I'll tell ya).

Damn, that is harsh. You don't often hear about that side of Portland.

I have an exceedingly sprightly sense of humor . . . :blackeye:

There are people I love in Portland, and I plan to drink beer with them, if nothing else.

The issue I have with Portland, and Oregon in general, is I am not sure when during the day you are supposed to cut over from coffee to beer. Mass quantities of each, and the time seems to vary day to day. I don't hear a siren or anything, but there is definitely some signal Oregonians have that has developed since my residence there.

I find it to be a personal thing that varies day-to-day .. some days I'm still on coffee at 7 PM, some days I've switched to beer at 11 in the morning.

Coffee in the left hand, beer in the right. If you trip, you are to let go of the coffee and save the beer.

And a little known fact here in Hood river is that you can walk down town or anywhere with an open beer in one hand and your coffee in another and it's perfectly legal. :thumbleft:
