Moi and my mom/fellow type O+ blood donor staking out a place to sit at the parade in Gearhart
Today I'm celebrating exactly 6 years since I moved back to Portland from Colorado after my divorce. I always consider it my own personal independence day, in addition to our nation's birthday. I am at the beach with my family (mom, dad and Perry) as a last mini vacation before surgery. It's sunny and warm (unusual for the Oregon coast). We watched the Gearhart parade and then spent time on the beach, watching people drive and get stuck in the sand. Hilarious.
Off to fireworks viewing at friends' house in Seaside tonight. A happy, healthy and safe holiday to all.
