August


I just looked back at the archives of this blog from last August and the articles are as fresh as if they were written today.

Here’s a quick wrap-up:
1. Dogs are still rampant at the Astoria Sunday Market.
2. Houses that are being built are still way too big.
3. Undocumented Aliens are having a harder time working.
4. There is still flag waving by the Post Office every Friday.
5. United Way sucks more than ever.
6. I’m scheduled to shear sheep again and test my knotting skills.
7. This is still a great place to live.
8. The Ft. George Brew Pub is open for business.
9. The County Fair is open for business again and I’m expecting a poor turn out since their only outlet for information is the New North West Broadcasting Co.
10. The rule for moving to the country is getting a big dog that barks, running motor cycles from dawn to dusk along with lawn mowers, string trimmers and leaf blowers and you must leave all your inside and outside lights on 24 hours a day.
11. Our District Attorney, Josh Marquis is even more of an embarrassment to our community and it appears he won’t stop until he drains the last cent from the county budget.

That sheep shearing thing...how does that work exactly and do you also knit wool sweaters?

Same old, same old...
But there's some comfort to be had in that.

We're going to the fair.

Just like we did last August.

And the weather is amazing.

Just like it was last August.

And I'm still chubby.

Like last August.

Well, consistency is comforting, right???

Auntie, have you started attending church again?

Lori, My wife spins wool and knits. It's pretty cool.

Beth, your life is way different than last year, and it will be different next year. I hope that's good for you or at least better.

Mo3, you don't strike me as "chubby". Besides, you photograph well.
