New daily photo blog, and limping forward 

Just so you know, my brain has dribbled out my ears. That may not surprise you, if you've ever read any of my previously ramblings.

Anyway, due to my present state of brainlessness, I've decided to start a daily photo blog of the beautiful Willamette Valley, here in Oregon. It's really not a good idea for me to start this, since I already have entirely too many web sites. I told you, no brains.

It all started last week when I discovered the wonders of the City Daily Photo Yahoo Widget. It is a desktop application which cycles through the various city photo blogs and displays their current photos. Since I don't live in town big enough to support 365 photos a year, I've decided to have mine encompass the entire Willamette Valley, which basically spans between Portland to Eugene, which are over 100 miles apart. It's horribly under represented in the grand photo blog stage. Plus, I'm stupid.

So, if you get a chance, give it a visit. It will have a new photo every day, hence the 'daily photo blog' aspect of things, along with captions describing where it was taken, and miscellaneous other gibberish. In fact, they're basically mini-rambles. If you do visit, I'll love you forever. But if you don't... well, I'll love you anyway.

If you have photos of the area, I very much welcome contributions. So g'wan, you know you want to.

I may start a mailing list for the photo blog. If I do, I'll let ya know.

Limping forward

My dog, Lucky, has a hurt leg. She won't walk on it, and most of the time, she simply can't walk. That means she must either be carried, which, after trying it, I simply cannot do (she's too heavy, and my shoulders, back, and neck are not happy body parts after I tried to do just that), or she needs some sort of transportation. Her own wheels, if you will.

Which, I am proud to say, she now has. I bought my dog her very own Radio Flyer little red wagon. Granted, I still have to pick her up to put her in and take her out, but otherwise, it's all good. She took to it instantly. I couldn't afford to buy the thing, but it needed to be done.

So that's fun. She's an old fart of a dog who's not inclined to do much, anyway, but she does need to go outside frequently. And I'm not supposed to be lifting even remotely heavy objects. My doctors would have a fit. So this seems a happy alternative. It's better than nothing, at any rate.

I'm trying to convince Tango the Wonder Kitty to get in the wagon and take a ride, but so far, no luck. I'll keep you posted.

You know, I always wanted a Radio Flyer when I was a kid, but never had one. But now I get to pull my dog around in one, so I guess it's all good.

Until next time, take care all. And if anyone wants to come over for a ride in my new wagon, just let me know.

Great photos, you have a good eye for pictures. Looks like a lovely area--I've always heard Oregon was a beautiful state. Looking forward to seeing more of it!
Hay guy she is very handsame looking forward to seeing more of it .
