last weekend lee and i took the pups to dogtoberfest. it’s an event held every year to raise money for an emergency vet here in portland. it’s held at the lucky lab brew pub in the SE. they were doing a big dog wash and had food (hot dogs), beer and music. and a million […]


recently lee dusted off her japanese cooking skills and made one of our faves. okonomiyaki. it’s like a japanese pancake of deliciousness. it consists of cabbage, noodles, ginger, green onions and some batter-y stuff and topped with japanese style bacon and egg. sounds weird and it is. but oh so good. especially when it’s cooked […]

winner winner!

first let me say that i’ve been a blog neglector.  where does the time go? i’ll try to catch up… i won 2 contests this week. and the prizes are all dave’s killer bread swag. not bad. i won one contest by answering a bread question correctly. i was one of the first 15. i […]

the pups

on sunday, lee and i decided to take the pups to the dog park. you know, the place where dogs go run around like crazy and sniff each other. just getting there is an ordeal. the pups aren’t spring chickens anymore so lee has a ramp to get them in the car. it would be […]

SE pdx continued

the whole point of our SE pdx adventure was because lee wanted to go to the japanese crepe place called mojo crepes. the place was in an asian area of town. it’s a japanese crepe place but no one was japanese in there. the dude working was chinese. should have been our first hint. there […]

september 11th…

today is september 11th. 9 years later. sometimes it seems like yesterday. still, it’s hard to believe. ventured out to the SE section of portland today with lee. she arrived back in town on friday, much to our delight. i dropped lee off at one place and i went to find parking. i ended up […]

and the rain begins

rain. yesterday i woke up to the smell of rain. there is something about the smell of the first rain… everything began to smell so clean. it was only mildly drizzling but enough to leave me soaked after walking the dogs. i guess it’s time to invest in some rain gear…. because today, the rain […]

from bad to worse…

that describes my day. i rolled over in bed this morning to find my sister’s golden retriever heavily panting and acting weird. it was 5am. even though she is weird to begin with, this was extremely weird for her. i figured she needed to go out.  i got up, opened the door and she ran […]

gluttony goodness

today was lee’s last day in portland so we decided to go have a last meal. and it was a feast to say the least. let’s be honest….we crushed it. we went to pine state biscuits. a place that comes with high recommendations. first, 3 dudes from NC own it and many of my friends […]

city view

i had planned a productive day today. it didn’t happen. partially from having work to do. and partially from having no real excuse. i did have to take lee’s white doctor coat to her at the hospital in between rounds. she left it at home. i know, that’s a shock. lee left something at home. […]
