Missed sending you all a joke yesterday! Don't even remember if I spinned the wheel. Went on a Jet boat cruise up the Willamette [will a' met] and Columbia Rivers, and through the locks at the Bonneville Dam. A native Oregonian and this is the first time I've got to do that. Pretty impressive. Have been down the Columbia to Astoria just last May. Love the water!
A photo of beacon rock on the Washington side. The area behind the rock used to belong to my grandfather and his four brothers. It was homesteaded by a cousin of Patrick Henry's...some time ago, you know! They sold it in the '50s to the National Forest. I have lots of roots here in the Northwest!
