Pink Flamingos in Portland


With the appearance of the fake spring we had recently here in Portland, this flock of pink flamingos landed in my neighbor’s yard. They were strangely still and unmoving, almost like those little plastic pink flamingos that live mostly in retirement villages in the south. I prefer to think that no one would do this to their yard intentionally, so I choose to believe that it must have been a wild flock posing as the crappy plastic variety.

Free Copier in the Rain


Has that old copy machine worn out its welcome? Then it’s time to kick it to the curb, perhaps literally. Who cares if it’s a dreary, drizzly day? Slap a free sticker on it and someone will certainly pick up your busted, soaked copier. Right?

Gargoyle House 2


I occasionally walk by this house, which is just bristling with gargoyles. Not pictured are the video game cabinets. They usually have a moving van parked out front and a rotating collection of a dozen tarp-covered classic video game cabinets stowed in the side yard.

Christmas Tree in a Truck…in February

Christmas Tree in a February
Hey, I’ve got an idea. When we’re done enjoying the Christmas tree in our living room, let’s leave it in the bed of our truck for a month or so. That way, the whole neighborhood can enjoy it!
