Rode MAX Today.

I seldom go to downtown Portland - Only when I have to. When I do, I ride MAX. Traffic and parking are a hassle.

Along about 3rd and Yamhill were a bunch of protestors. Well, I guess that's what they were. They were carrying signs and making lots of noise. Dunno if they were Antifa or just wannabees. They faces weren't covered, as Antifa's usually are. One sign said, "Abolish ICE." Another said "(Bleep) Cops."

Then a few blocks later, we got to Skidmore Fountain. Last time I was in that part of town, it was one giant homeless camp. Apparently, the city has cleaned it up. At least, they've gotten rid of the makeshift tents that blocked sidewalks.

And how was YOUR day??

1. ".....And how was YOUR day??....."

I spent it admiring the primitive-free, litter-free, smog-free, shit-free panorama of the Sandhills of Nebraska.

2. I went looking for a lawnmower belt

 

Not a lot of success.
Found one that was close then it rained.

Now I have to go decipher wires on a 50 year old Winnebago for the 80 year old guy that bought it 40 years ago.
Then I have to get back to mowing.

My wife and I did decide to have lunch at the nearby country diner/greasy spoon. We sat outside, the weather was delightful.
