We were at a food cart pod sampling the flavors while we decided what to eat.

It was fun especially as the evening was warm and people were happy.

There was music and laughter.  Strangers talked and joked with each other.

French crepes, Middle Eastern, Mexican, a full bar, hamburgers… So many tempting choices.  We finally settled for a  fennel sausage pizza from the  Pyro Pizza Cart.  It was delicious! We will return soon to try the other pizzas and the arugula salad.

Plus some of the other food carts too.

The Results

The Habanero Lime was a “must try’!  Just a whiff of it took my breath away but I was determined to drink some.  Whoa Nellie, as they say, it was strong!

The basamic fig reminded me of kambucha.

My hands-down favorite was the Lemon Mint.  It was refreshing with a hint of sweetness.

I did not try them all.  I did find a winner in the Lemon Mint and ordered a full glass.  A new favorite!

Catching a movie at “Cartopia Movie Night” sounds fun especially with friends.  It’s fun to hang out with milennials. It would be fun to watch Jaws with a group of milennials and their kids.

I do love Portland!

Cooling it with Google…

I never imagined that cooling my home in summer would be an issue in Portland, Oregon.  I counted on  a few hot days and then, back to cooler days and nights!

I am coming back

I am coming back.

I have not posted in awhile.

I have had great ideas.  I have written articles in my mind as I walked with my dog Ginny.

But putting paper to pen or fingers to computer has not happened. Continue reading “I am coming back”

Exasperating Men

At my annual physical exam, my doctor shared with me the story of a small growth that he had ignored years ago.

He was too busy in medical school to have to have it removed.
