In line at the store my friend said "4973" now we all know your pin. Why would you write it in sharpie on your debit card?"

In line at the store my friend said "4973" now we all know your pin. Why would you write it in sharpie on your debit card?" I do have 4973 in happy letters across my debit card. But that isn't my pin. I put that there because if anyone swipes my card, I want them to spend as much time as possible trying the phoney baloney number in front of the ATM camera. Haha. I'm an honest guy who is always fishing for suckers. lol. You should too.

Some Summer pics. I like how the 2018 hot season turned out












one day everything was purple.




Months ago I was treated to the sound of a car alarm accompanied by a woodpecker.

ew. Months ago I was treated to the sound of a car alarm accompanied by a woodpecker. They made great music together.
Now I'm hearing the woodpecker sound accompanied by someone snaking a drain. That music is frikkin' nauseating. Like some great beast trying to digest some indigestible artifact. Gross.

Out on the grill today I met a charming trio of tourists.

charming trio of tourists. They were from Indiana. One said "Bingo" I said, "Um yeah, I don't actually care but if you are keeping good records I'm called Dingo, Bingo is the name of my granny who sadly passed away this mornin', thanks for bringing it up I..." And they interrupted "No, I said Bingo, we are playing Portland Bingo and a tallbike is on our list, can we take a picture? "oh sure of course, happy to help." 


We stood there chatting a long time. They apologized for Mike Pence. Apparently the vice pres is a huge point of embarrassment for that state. We chatted a lot about politics and Portland and bikes. We discovered we all have a mutual admiration for the state of Iowa. So there's that. Then Olive arrived and we took off bidding our newest single serving friends goodbye.

Portland song, the lost tapes



The Portland Song "lost tapes". We got the lost tapes back this morning. Here they are. We got lucky. We don't like driving but when we do we have fun, that is until our camera falls off the car. 
After the Portland song stay tuned for that moment when a fateful bump knocks our camera down. Sean found it and left it by the road for a half hour. In that time lots of people walked by. 
Some looking right at it. It's hilarious watching us look for the gopro. Then 26 hours later Bingo, we visit our new friend at work, thank him vigorously and boom, we are back in biz. Thank you Honest Sean Carlson! Nice to meet you! Thanks for making it a great town to be a clown.
Grateful clowns here. We ballooned him and his colleagues up at his animal repair job.
