Eugene, OR


One of the many beautiful mountain streams. This is Sweet Creek.

Mary, my sister Christine, and her dog on the beach at Florence, OR.

Mary's first experience inside a COSTCO store. For residents of Washington and Oregon, shopping at COSTCO seems to make up for lack of sunshine.

Vineyards abound in the Pacific Northwest. They are replacing Starbucks and other coffee kiosks in popularity. Everyone seems to have one, is starting one, or is near one. As part of our research, we compared a $2.99 bottle of Pinot Grigio/Gris to a $3.99 bottle. The more expensive bottle won. We drank both, and many more.

My sister microwaves spaghetti squash without first puncturing holes in it.

Ha ha ha ha!! I love the squash photo!! Wow, well one good thing is that you didn't need to spend the time separating the strands of spaghetti squash once cooked. The explosion appears to have taken care of that for you ;-)

Hi Richie....now we know that you have other living relatives other than yourself. Your sister is cute, is she single?
