A couple of my married friends have joked with me now and then about walking their dogs as a way to meet women.  I’ve never taken the idea seriously until an opportunity presented itself  this past summer and I thought I’d give it a shot.  If nothing else, I’d make it a little photo project.  Well, yeah, at least that happened… Continue reading

Went to the grand opening of a new skatepark this weekend.  They say it’s the largest outdoor covered skatepark in the country…more than appropriate for rainy western Oregon.
