Trilly

Back in 1996, Greg brought home two kittens. His co-worker’s cat had a litter and we were excited to get two brothers. This was the first time we had pets together. I grew up with a million cats and I was thrilled to have them again. Two years ago, we lost Atticus (on the right) to cancer. The last few months of his life were hard. He was so sick and it was hard to watch him go through that. His passing was very sad, but still...

Hump Day Art Festival


Posted on Oct 14, 2012

I’ve been really excited to check out Hump Day Art Festival. This brand new art fair is held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 6-10pm at SE 9th and Morrison. 9th street is closed for about 4 blocks, but there is lots of potential for this event to grow in the inner SE Warehouse district. We arrived about 6:30pm and it was starting to get dark. There was still plenty of time to see everything. About half of the booths had...

It was an intimate and incredible night. I’m so glad I was able to attend this concert.   We got to Doug Fir just after...

Off to College

I had the privilege of driving my niece to college this September. It’s been such a joy to watch her grow up over the years. I lived with her for the first year of her life and then I’ve lived about 10 minutes away from her ever since. She is such a great person and it’s been a joy to see her grow and change over the years. I gave my niece my old bike, so she can ride around campus. Luckily, all of her stuff fit in...

Walking My Cat

Walking My Cat


Posted on Jul 30, 2012

Trilly is an old man at age 16. One thing I’ve always felt a little guilty about is that he’s an indoor cat. When we got Trilly, as a kitten, we lived on Burnside and letting him outside wasn’t a viable option. We had him for several years before moving to the more residential Brooklyn neighborhood.  He lacked the skills to be safe outside, so we kept him in. Last week, I drove past a lady sitting on her front steps....
