I continue to take pictures, but haven’t posted here for a while. Here are some of them.
Gilligan has had an eventful spring. She has made peace with Hazel but not with Ginger.1 Ginger would rather run, which results in a chase – romping fun for Gilligan. Then one day, Ginger was lying on the couch and Gilligan decided this was the day to lie on the couch with her instead of bark and chase. Progress!
Like most labs, Gilligan is a sweetheart. She cuddles with all of us. When I sit on the chair with the ottoman, she jumps up and lies across my feet. But she has a special place in her heart for Heather. Heather seems to be a good pillow.
Gilligan had a recent visit to the vet. She came home with a plastic “cone of shame.” After a day of Gilligan ramming it into walls and furniture, Heather got her an inflatable tube that goes around Gilligan’s neck. It doesn’t have the same ability to prevent scratching with her hind legs, but she likes it and doesn’t try anything. In fact, it seems that Gilligan feels pretty wearing it.
Mousse also visited for a weekend. She loves our backyard and walks. :-)
Pioneer Courthouse Square had a flower sale. Rather than bringing the plants ready to sell, they came pre-bloomed, that is, before they had bloomed. Over the course of a week or so, the flowers bloomed in preparation for the sale.
Jamison came home for the long Memorial Day weekend, and brought 9-10 college friends with him. Had he been in high school, we might have taken pictures of the whole gang. Instead, we captured the artwork one did while here on an Etch-A-Sketch.
On the way to work, I take pictures. The other project manager and I have done some walking 1:1s around Portland. It’s a beautiful place to be.
I hope you’re taking the time to notice and enjoy the sights you see. Have a great week!
- In fact, Gilligan and Hazel clean each other. :-D ↩
