January 20, 2009 - These are the Stupid Loser Geese - why? Geese generally will yield right-of-way to people on the walkway. However, one lone goose challenged Tom on the sidewalk - undeterred Tom FORGED ahead intimidating the goose to the last moment. This one was standing there making goose sounds, but Tom kept walking. Within a few feet the goose decided to join his friends and then the flock relocated to where they are in this photo.
January 21, 2009 - The Hawthorne Bridge, the most beautiful bridge in Oregon. The oldest FUNCTIONAL vertical lift bridge this side of the Mississippi. (side note by nancy: Tom insisted on having one of our pre-wedding photos taken with this bridge in the background. I am not that crazy about this bridge)
January 22, 2009 - Rumor has it that this restaurant has closed down for good - it was open for approximately 4 months...phhffft...However, there was a sign in the window that indicated that they would re-open in the spring, but keep the uppity feel of the dining experience.
January 23, 2009 - Transformer trauma in Hillsboro. This job is on Main Street and an unexpected utility relocation has reared it's ugly head. Never a dull moment for Tom and his jobs.
January 24, 2009 - After a brisk, early afternoon ride to celebrate Robin's new RIDE, we earned a well deserved Starbucks break. Well deserved because it snowed. I don't like snow. January 25, 2009 - Bami is yummy.
