Sometimes I have random thoughts. By sometimes, I mean most of the time. These random thoughts would seem just…kind of…sorta…crazy, if put them out there, with no context. I could Tweet them individually or write a series of Facebook status updates, but that might cause my friends to stage an intervention. I usually opt to keep them to myself, but today I felt like sharing.
I decided to list ten of these random thoughts because ten seems like the least random number that I could come up with, for a list. There are always Top 10 lists for doing things or ranking things. So a list of random thoughts with a perfectly normal number seemed about right
OK, enough chatter…on with the list!
I’d heard the legends of Portland. I’d heard about this “dream of the 90’s” vibe. Actually, I’d only really seen the TV show “Portlandia” on Netflix.
When the opportunity came up to visit Portland, I jumped at it. What did I find out? What did I see? I can tell you that I spent time with a relatively new friend and friend that I’ve known since high school. I traveled from Portland proper to places named Bored, Happy Valley, Damascus and Tigard. Beyond that? Well, you’re going to have to follow along after the break, to find out.
