I saw this sign on the tip jar at the coffee stand at Multnomah Falls. It says, "Your Tips Help Pay For: Kathy - Rent/College; Dan - Jeep parts; Jared - Finding a Girlfriend; Laura - Private Jet; Hunter - Jedi training; Carolyn - New Car; Spencer - The ladies!; Anselmo - Kollege; Jon - New Puppy; Thanks a latte! Bri - first car so my parents don't have to drive me to work!"
It was warm in the Columbia Gorge yesterday, and it was even 72 degrees at Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood! Stranger still, the thermometer on my well-shaded front porch registered 93.6 degrees earlier today. That is quite a heat wave for May in Portland, not that I'm complaining.
