Hi, all -I had a fabulous mom. She grew up in Gresham, Oregon and loved the falls in the Columbia River Gorge. When I was little and she would wash my hair, she named each glass of rinse water after a gorge waterfall; I can hear her voice in the sound of the water when I visit them. Yesterday: Wahclella, Horsetail, Multnomah, Wahkeena, Bridal Veil, Shepperds Dell, and Latourell. Then quick stops at Crown Point and the Women's Forum Overlook, an ice cream from Corbett Country Market, and a new ugly dog for my collection from a Troutdale antique vendor.

Ugly dog - looks shamed. It qualifies for my collection in 2 categories: 1) Is that a dog?! and 2) If I saw it in real life I'd be creeped out.
