A lot of yummy appetizers at 3 Doors Down Cafe, 37th and Hawthorne

First, let me tell everyone how appreciative Mama is of all the birthday wishes sent her way! Happily she felt good enough to walk half a block to the car, then ride a block and a half to the beauty shop. A couple of hours later, with her newly cut and permed do, she rode home with me at the wheel. Later that night as we sat on the side of her bed for a minute or two, like we've been doing a lot lately right before she rests her head on the pillow and pulls the cover up to her neck, I said, "You got the best birthday present ever!" "A blood transfusion," she heartily agreed. Our next goal is to find out, if at all possible, what's causing the anemia, if it returns to debilitate her.

Please take a look at Wendy Brandes Jewelry Blog for a way to help a blogger in need. Thanks!

Oh, my goodness! My mouth is watering. Great photography!

So you are from Portland? How wonderful. I grew up in Wilsonville. Portland is my stomping grounds from way WAY back. When I was a child, my brothers and sisters and I called Portland "Bridge City."

I have always loved Portland.
