Its been a year since I moved here to work on my musical. Orinally my dog Boogybear and I were coming here together.

But he died at the age of 14 years, one year ago, right before we were to move. And interestingly, 2 months before he died, he ran up the street to see his girlfriend, sophie. They mated. What a stud. And now who do you think is with me all the time. Boogybears son, homerbear. So Homer and I are packin up as Im typing. Back to my little place in Seattle for a while in order to finish up some details. So I wanted to just mention a few things about Portland in case you come here.

Just last week in Portland I was walking my dog down the street and he was looking for squirrels and I was looking around. All of a sudden, bam!. Some lady walked right into me. I said to her how do you read a book and walk at the same time without bumping into people. So she and I talked for about a few minutes and I invited her to walk with me and homer, my dog. She was a very beautiful woman. So we ended up going to lunch together with homer of course. I bought lunch and then she took me to a great place for desert and coffee. She bought all that. I had a great time. Then I asked her what she does for a living and she told me she is a professional stripper in a club here. She told me she was going to go to college but that she makes around 75k a year. I told her that I hope she is saving her money. I asked her how she is going to live when she gets older and maybe isnt able to make it as a stripper anymore. So she and I talked about this for an hour while having coffee and desert. And, we came up with a plan, so she could save her money and get to college within a year. I hope she makes it. I thanked her for a lovely afternoon, and Homer and I walked with her down the street to the corner where we each went our seperate ways.

This is something that rarely happens to me.

Maybe you should be a novelist instead of a musician.

 

That story's so good, it's almost believable. :/

Bobby, I agree with you that Portland is a great town: Powells Books, Riverwalk, Pioneer Courthouse Square, Zupan's, NW 23rd St. at Christmas time, OHS, OMSI, Portland Center Stage, and all the casual civilized folks with umbrellas and coffee. I remember moving to Oregon country after 20 years in downtown L.A., joking I wouldn't see another city unless it was through the crosshairs of a bombsite. Then I visited Portland and saw how pleasant a city could be.

 

Enjoy Seattle. It's my 2nd-favorite city. 'Course, I haven't been to Boston or Savannah or Charlottesville yet :Cool:
