More 2008/2009 Blazer season memories

I remember this play distinctly from this past season. Ryan and I watched this game at Ruby Tuesday’s that night, because we didn’t have tickets, and the game wasn’t on broadcast TV. I like these clips because they give multiple angles of the same play. Some things to watch for in this video… Watch the amazing and under-appreciated no-look pass from Sergio to Rudy that gets the whole thing going. Also watch Rudy’s eyes when he sees the inbound pass after just completing the 3 pointer. Good stuff.

Mom & Dad’s 50th

Last night we went out to the Portland City Grill for a belated celebration of Mom & Dad’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. The restaurant is on the 30th floor of the US Bank tower, the view of Portland is amazing. Happy 50th Mom and Dad!

(yes, that flash reflection in the 3rd picture bothers me as much as it bothers you. I started to fiddle with it to remove the bright spot, but lost patience…. On a rainy afternoon someday I may try again)

Multnomah Channel


We spent the day before Thanksgiving cruising the Multnomah Channel. It was an amazingly beautiful day, cold but sunny and clear. We put in at Scappoose Bay marina, spent an hour fooling with Jon’s dead battery, then cruised the 20 or so miles north through the channel to the Willamette. This is a beautiful trip, can’t believe we waited so long to do it. John suited up and rode his Waverunner the whole way, he got some strange looks for being out this time of year.

Ready to load up at Willamette Park. We cruised a lot farther than originally intended. We started at Willamette Park and went to the Columbia, and made a loop around Tomahawk Island. I had only put about a half a tank of gas in before we left, but I thought it would be no problem since there are gas docks at Tomahawk Island. For the record, the gas docks close at 5 (or earlier) on Sunday, also Fred’s Marina on Multnomah Channel closes at 5. We made it back, but I was pretty nervous not knowing how much gas the boat burns… Next time I will fill the tank.
