I arrived in Portland and drove back to Albany. There was an accident on the freeway, and I got stuck in a little traffic.A truck had turned on its side. I'm not sure you can see it very well, but these are the best shots I could get.
I ate out at a restaurant with artwork that reminded me of Rob's.Meanwhile, Rob was trying Miracle Fruit, a berry that makes sour foods taste sweet. Apparently it makes beer taste gross.
I arrived in Illinois to spend the weekend with my family and Sage, the old dog. She absolutely refused to pose for a picture, so I had to hold her head up for the camera. Sage is showing her age, but I still love her :)Meanwhile in Oregon, Kia was completely oblivious to the fact that I was cheating on her.
The kitty was surprised to hear that I would be leaving her for a weekend. Would Rob make her food the right way??Later that night, Lisa arrived at her hotel room in Portland to try to catch a couple hours of sleep, but pig and cow kept her awake. Party animals!
Rob and his co-teacher always ask the kids to bring pumpkin pies on the last day of school before Thanksgiving. Usually, they don't get much. This year they got 6 large pies and 1 small! I even got to have a couple of slices :)
Took the car for an oil change today and discovered that a small thingamabob coming from the engine is broken. The guy at the oil change place didn't even know what it was :) We will have to take the car in for repairs soon.Whiskey sours in our favorite tumblers. Yummy!
