Back Home Again

We flew in yesterday evening after a really great trip to Portland for Barclay's birthday. The weather was picture perfect - it was as if we had put in an order and had been served in a very grand style. In the 70's and sunny - who could ask for anything more!

On Saturday we went up to Mount Hood and it was like going from one season to the other. The snow is still really, really deep - in feet - up there. It is so incredibly beautiful. We ate at the lodge - which you can barely see in this picture. I don't think I have ever seen so much snow. Here we all are ready for lunch. Not a bad looking group, really. The birthday boy and his wife, Sher and Barclay, are first couple on the left - then Hannah, Norah and her Chad, Doug and Molly, the old hag and Bill and Ann.

Happy Birthday, Barclay - and many, many more! (Today is his actual birthday)

Isn't the view from there spectacular on a sunny day?
