You need to roll that Dixie Cup just right to keep it tight on your head.
I was trained by a master, my dad.

I was downtown for the Rose Festival today but was too late for the normal visitor tour. Security is very tight near the fleet. A bomb threat closed the freeway and light rail into downtown for hours.





No security threat can stop a Pizza and Donuts run.

"Use of force is authorized" I like the signs that read "Use of deadly force is authorized"

I don't know if the prosecutors in Oregon will prosecute, but then again, they might be tired of all the BS that has gone on.
