Winding down the summer


Jim and Nancy left Tuesday, we started choir on Wednesday and on Thursday we went with four other couples to the open air concert of the Oregon Symphony on the banks of the Willamette River (which was followed by fireworks.) Yesterday we went with a group from church to a Portland Beavers (Triple A) game. That was interesting. We drove to Beaverton and took the light rail right to the stadium. Took us 35 minutes to get home. You can ride the train free if you have a Beavers ticket. Cool.

Today we went to the garden just in time to help Marilyn load up all the bounty in the back of the Jeep to get it into the big refrigerator for display and sale on Sunday. Melons, peppers, carrots, squash, potatoes...whew...beans and tomatoes will be harvested tomorrow morning. This afternoon we went to see the highly recommended Julie and Julia. It lived up to its billing. Merrel Streep was superb, of course.

Tomorrow it is men's group for breakfast and then church. It is going to rain some more tomorrow. We had a half inch today and will get that much tomorrow, so says the weather people. This is not the start of our rainy season; just an interlude to the dry season. The seven day forecast is for warm and dry weather after Monday. You can't beat the 75 degree days and 55 degree nights. Yumm.

The Connellys are away at the coast, so we have Frodo until Monday. He is one boring dog. Sleep, sleep, sleep.

Our next outing isn't scheduled until the 13th of October when we fly to Michigan once again for a wedding and a chance to see Jeff and Mary. But who knows, Aleene has been hinting about a train trip to Seattle to see MLB with the Mariners.
