scareween, and the little boy down the road…

we’re having a nice fall here in oregon. summer and drought has burned on long enough to almost make portlandia long for the rain to come. not me, i love summer, the warmth…sunshine. it could be summer all the time here far as i’m concerned but then, i guess that would make it california. so even if the signs of autumn are hints that the warmth is going to go away soon, the changing colors on the tr
