With Lamont here to help, we took a load of clothes down the 10 steps to the basement laundry room. After we returned there to put the clothes in the dryer, I decided to walk out the building's side door and around to the front door to get back to my apartment which is near the front door. While taking a photo of the sunshine in these banana tree leaves, I caught the guy who had just rattled by on the sidewalk. See him just to the right of the leaves.
He's got a plastic tub stuffed to the gills with something, topped by a black drum, all balanced on top of a skateboard.
Skillfully he pushed his cargo from the sidewalk, through the intersection, and continued south on the street.
Ah, the joys of being out and about in Portland.
UPDATE: I have low grade uterine cancer. Friday morning at 8 a.m., I have an appointment with a surgeon who deals with what the scheduler called "cancer from the belly button down," in other words, her specialty is cancer in a woman's reproductive tract. We will discuss the pathology report thoroughly as well as a plan for what's next, which the scheduler labeled a plan for care/cure. I will leave the appointment with a complete understanding of the pathology and the plan.
THANK YOU for your continued prayers, love and concern.
