pot, meet kettle

This is priceless. I was hoping to find some collection of all the crap flung against the wall over the past 8 years, this does the job nicely, so I don't have to comb through the archives and piece it together myself. Every time I hear another whine-fest starting about the boo friggin hoo conservatives comparing O with Hitler I want to puke. I don't believe they believe what they are saying. Can they be so blind or in such denial? The only other option is blatant hypocrisy.

Summer vacation to Southern Oregon

So we had our week long trip to southern oregon, camped at Lake Selmac and made several side trips in the area. I have to say the big disapointment was Ashland, it just wasn't all that. I remember it fondly from high scholl when we went there for the Shakespeare Festival for English class. We had to tag team the backstage tour because of the dog. I can kind of get that, but in a college town you would think that the town itself would be somewhat dog friendly, we couldn't even enter Lithia park with the dog, see pics below. Friggin Nazis. Dog haters. We ate our picnic lunch just outside the park with sneering wannabe counter cultural college student-sheep looking at us like bugs. Yuck, we left there and went on to the vortex. Now that was fun. The pics don't really do it justice, maybe I will play around with them some and remove the background so you can see the size difference when people change location. I can't explain it but I saw it. Hmm. We did get down to Cresent CIty, it's still #)(#%*&^%*&($California but the seaside pics were nice. Our campground was nearly deserted the whole week. All in all it was nice and we may go back another itme.

Fall beach cleanup

I can't believe it is that time already, this year simply flew by and this summer was blur. School is already back in session and we had our annual trek to Fort Stevens for the beach cleanup. The weather cooperated more or less. We didn't find any huge garbage but we did find a dead sea lion, I did not take pictures, ughh. I do have pictures of the world famous stroller pushing pug, isn't she cute? She did not like Jake the dog faced dog, every time she caught site of Jake the snorting pug-bark would ensue. Jake didn't know what to make of that. Anyway, all this can mean only one thing, fall is here and the holidays are just around the corner. Sometimes I just wish you could slow this ride down a bit.
