we slept in late after arriving back on the flight-from-Portland and have been Busy (but not at all harassed) Doing Chores (laundry, dry-cleaning, alterations and picking-up-stuff-at-the-chemist – *sighs* for the lack of thyroid post-surgery).
but here’s a Last Look at Portland from yesterday.
isn’t it gorgeous?
now These roses are very important because they are part of the International Rose Test Garden (not a place where they make flowers do Quizzes but where they make new hybrids and so on)
and this is Alder & Co which is a Fabulous Store.
we WERE working.
but luckily we had Charming Colleagues who took us on a Trip so we could (as the Americans say) “Walk n Talk” (which we are very good at doing – both – together – you see). and these are the luscious Mansion grounds.
we felt Very Grateful because L.A was “open” last night – unlike Seattle which was closed due to bad weather and nobody could take off and leave Portland if that was their destination last evening. Even though we were Extremely Exhausted upon arrival in Los Angeles, we felt a vast amount of compassion for those people stranded there who had Hoped to get home to Seattle – and clustered forlornly by the departure desk in vain.
what’s this (scroll down if you can’t see it)?
oh! how nice – we’d almost forgotten Filing Our Copy before we left for Portland.
another “Where Shall We Meet?“.
the lovely Kyle (our Editor) filled in for us while we were away in NYC the week before but we’re hoping to do an “On the Road” version during our travels Abroad in November so do stay tuned.
can one Say one is Tuned on the interweb?
we do hope so.
it sounds ever so nice.
btw, as the young people say, we feel Ever so Remiss – we Promise to visit you soon. It’s been an Age.
