Girlie and I escaped for a week to Yunnan, starting in Lijiang, then Dali & Shuanglong to hang out with our friends from Flying Turtle Coffee. Check out the pictures!
Portland likes its lefty politics, beer, and parties. Therefore, this Election Night will cause some heavy drinking, though I think I speak for most every sane person on the planet when I say it better be in celebration, not bitter disappointment and sadness.
All of the events I could find, in no particular order, after the jump:
I’m borrowing a picture montage from the Mail News on Sunday (UK) and bringing it here, because my mother always loved Herons, and after many canoe trips and lake trips and trips involving herons that I did or (often) didn’t want to attend, I’ve learned why. My mom is secretly the world’s best interrogator, and that she was teaching us a lesson. Herons are Nature’s CIA interrogators. Witness a Grey Heron catching a rabbit by the ear, drowning it and swallowing it whole.
I’m clearly mailing it in this week, but big changes are a comin’ around here. stay tuned.
