I was going through some of my older photos and since today wasn't exactly without rain, I'm using these. Getting tired of the rain about now........ready to get back out into the garden since there's still an awful lot more to be done. Yesterday I was down at the dock, but having a delicious lunch with a good friend at Griff's. Shrimp and cheese.....Yum! It was raining then, too.
Today we stopped by one of the newer business' in town, "Twice Upon A Time". A consignment and second-used store. Already, Lloyd the owner, is enlarging for more furniture. They have a little of everything; books, clothing, knick-knacks and such. There were a few items that I would have liked to have had the time and talent to pursue........a couple of nice looms, a piano,
raw wool, although I didn't see a spinning wheel. It's located in the garage part of the Port Orford RV Park on Hwy 101 across from True Value Hardware. And Lloyd is a very friendly and interesting man and enjoys conversing without over-whelming. Stop in and I bet you'll find something you can't live without..............I did.
Up to Coos Bay tomorrow and guess what?? We're supposed to have rain!! One upside of all this wet is that we enjoy hearing "the frogs of winter", as I call them. Upside down from when I lived in the Sierra foothills of California. Then it was summer when we'd hear the little guys. But never as loud as the chorus we listen to up here. Guess there's always an upside to everything when we look for it.
