THESE tantalize. My mind is betwixt and between. Are they art or out-of-work mannequins?
THESE large, colorful flowers are made of tissue paper. A few days later after an evening of misty rain, although somewhat wilted, the flowers still decorated the motorcycle. I didn't take a photo that day, though.
THIS is the truth.

Goat takes ride on TriMet bus, by TERESA BLACKMAN, kgw.com Staff
PORTLAND, Ore. -- A goat somehow hitched a ride on a Portland bus Monday night, surprising TriMet officials and her owner, who was baffled about how she got there.
Mike Oswald with Multnomah County Animal Control said the goat was “taken into custody by transit police for lack of proper fare” after it was spotted on the bus.
Someone actually called 9-1-1 to report the sneaky passenger on bus route # 14. TriMet security officers said they think the goat stepped onto the bus just before 10 p.m., at the corner of 94th and SE Foster.
TriMet police got a good chuckle and spread the word that “an unauthorized kidd” was riding the bus alone.
Animal Control is caring for the bus-hopping goat.
The 35-pound goat was eventually captured without incident and taken to Multnomah County Animal Services in Troutdale. Employees were trying to find its owner, including through searches on Craigslist. They said the female Pygmy goat had a black collar with a yellow tag on it, but the tag was so worn, it was impossible to read.
But as it turned out, it was the goat's brief moment of fame that brought out her owner. The goat's family saw the story on KGW-TV's noon newscast and quickly called Animal Control to claim her.
The goat's name is Poppy and she was a recent gift to a SE Portland resident who said it was unclear how the goat got out of a gate.
Poppy seemed to take the whole day in stride, chomping on hay and grain at the shelter before she was reunited with her owner.
