Default Land of Mt. Hood and the Source of the East Wind

In summer it is nice though, and stays a little cooler than downtown Portland.

Today I am back over in the Cedar Mills Library, since I don't have my Multnomah County library card yet. After lunch with Kim downtown, I came up here. It is currently 51F here with a slight sprinkling of rain starting. Should be dry again in a couple day.

A few days ago I walked over to the Mt. Hood Community College campus. I spent 2 years in school there. Much has changed, but old memories still remain.

"The years run too short and the days too fast
The things you lean on are the things that don't last
Well it's just now and then my line gets cast into these
Time passages
There's something back here that you left behind
Oh time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight

A girl comes towards you
You once used to know
You reach out your hand
But you're all alone, in these
Time passages
I know you're in there, you're just out of sight
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight" - Al Stewart

At first I felt a little lost, but then I came upon a spot I clearly remembered. It was where I had gone out there and watched a speech by then President Jimmy Carter in the late 70's. He was the first President I had seen in person! A helicopter brought him in, and Iranian students hiding their faces were demonstrating against the Shaw of Iran.

I finally found the lake that they made by damming up the local creek. I once drove a car across that dam! But if I were to try it now, I would run into a fence. I now must give up any hope of wetting a line in that trout stocked pond, as fishing is now limited to those under 17. Well, that's how I always thought it should be.

I found the basketball court with the dome shaped roof. It is a paraboloid shaped roof which gives an interesting echoic effect at its center. They have wisely covered much of the ceiling with acoustic tile.

There used to be tables and chairs on the east side where students could sit. But now it's all basketball floor. That's were I used to sit and talk with Greta and Susan in those pleasant times.

The time has come

I went to the corner of Kane Dr. and Stark St. to look for the stone mile post marker for mile 14 from Portland. It was there back in 1969 when I checked. This were set down every mile along Stark about 150 years ago. Stark led to the Stark St. Ferry, which was the only way to cross the Willamette River back then, before they built the bridges in Portland. The Community College has put up a sign at that corner and surrounded it with rocks and other landscaping. But no sign of the historic mile stone. You would think that the administrators of a college of all people would have some respect for history!

Hi AA I am thinking it would be nice to read and reply to you.We have known each other for so many years. My operation went OK. $60 add in Regestar did zip.Not one call. Fact is I can't find it?? Weather here in Anaheim sunny cool,and windy. Stayed the past 3 nights at Walmart,for its not beach weather.Still trying to think about space energy.Virtual energy.Dark energy,and what going on inside a BH. This keeps me from being bored.

Hi Bert, there's hardly anyone else left here to talk too. Glad your operation went OK.

Sunny here today here in Gresham at 11:00 AM. 62F now. Expect high of 74F.. But danger of thunderstorms late this afternoon. Thought best to carry umbrella.

Well, it's Monday and all the working stiffs are back on the job. Nice to be retired.

Today is May 18, a day which lives in Oregon history. It's the day 25 years ago when Mt. St. Helens blew its top!

Yes, the big lie told often enough becomes accepted like gospel!

I found out Painius is alive and well editing some Wikipedia sites. He apparently just no longer wants to post here.

Overcast here in Gresham as of 1:30 PM. Was misting in the AM. Now 60F headed for a possible 67F later. The Oregon grapes are starting to ripen!

But you're all alone, in these
Time passages
I know you're in there, you're just out of sight
Time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight" - Al Stewart

At first I felt a little lost, but then I came upon a spot I clearly remembered. It was where I had gone out there and watched a speech by then President Jimmy Carter in the late 70's. He was the first President I had seen in person! A helicopter brought him in, and Iranian students hiding their faces were demonstrating against the Shaw of Iran.

I finally found the lake that they made by damming up the local creek. I once drove a car across that dam! But if I were to try it now, I would run into a fence. I now must give up any hope of wetting a line in that trout stocked pond, as fishing is now limited to those under 17. Well, that's how I always thought it should be.

I found the basketball court with the dome shaped roof. It is a paraboloid shaped roof which gives an interesting echoic effect at its center. They have wisely covered much of the ceiling with acoustic tile.

There used to be tables and chairs on the east side where students could sit. But now it's all basketball floor. That's were I used to sit and talk with Greta and Susan in those pleasant times.

"The day is here,
The time has come
When I go see my darling love.
But why is she not here today
Where she has always been before?
I wait for you,
But you come not. - AA

I went to the corner of Kane Dr. and Stark St. to look for the stone mile post marker for mile 14 from Portland. It was there back in 1969 when I checked. This were set down every mile along Stark about 150 years ago. Stark led to the Stark St. Ferry, which was the only way to cross the Willamette River back then, before they built the bridges in Portland. The Community College has put up a sign at that corner and surrounded it with rocks and other landscaping. But no sign of the historic mile stone. You would think that the administrators of a college of all people would have some respect for history!

Sam emails me.I told him being a teacher he had a lot to lose by staying and being "bad mouthed" Like the hate mongers having me in prison,not paying bills etc.They don't mention I ran for mayor of my home town.That I make full page adds in news papers. Lies said over and over about me is best they can do. Bert



Yes, the big lie told often enough becomes accepted like gospel!

I found out Painius is alive and well editing some Wikipedia sites. He apparently just no longer wants to post here.
