Every year she wears a different configuration - always with 'wings' - and she swoops in and out of parade floats and old timey cars and mohawked unicyclists and protestors for various causes....

Tildy says "Happy Independents Day Anna! Where did they hide the brats at?"

You should have come with us a couple days ago to Bar Cesar, Julie

Hey Phyllis, isn't she? 

I was looking through old photos for a cheer me up one and she fit the bill  : )

Julie, there is a bank nearby with a mimosa growing that sends out shoots every year, and every year I sneak down there after dark with a shovel and dig up just one little mimosa shoot to take home and tenderly nurture until it's big enough to plant..... and so far, none survive. 

But that's not the mimosa you mean.

Maybe wing lady has already hit the mimosa bar!

Happy 4th Tildy and nana! Vegan brats, right?

That .. is hot. 

Hi to you and yours Anna. I've been praying for Oregon :0 what gives up in there? So weird but yesterday I'm standing in a yard on Wyandotte waiting for J, her inspecting the house. A realty thing. A little woman with two dwarf greyhounds on leashes asked me what's up with the house. I had no clue really, and told her, but a conversation ensued. She just sold her houses in Portland and Astoria and is moving here, to get away from the freaks she said. Ha. That's not why really. But I did ask about the problems I've heard of, and if the price of heroin is low. Anyway, she's a cash buyer; spent $7000 fixing the broken leg of one of the little dogs (showed me the brutal x-ray) from the Oregon real estate profit, and is hooked up with J but I'm claiming a finder's fee. Viva la Indendence I say. We have a lot of fireworks around here even though they are illegal. Total mayhem.

They had sauerkraut on em, so, yeah, that's vegan, right?

Fireworks goin off like mad here too, tr ig, but they're so illegal in Cali that only the Mexicans and Chinese got em. Every now and then someone empties a mag out of their 9mm, but it ain't nothin like back home. I haven't heard a single spent round come whistling down thru the trees yet, wtf man?

Hey tr ig - yeah, Portland is uh, a place of strange energy, imho. My own life exploded into flames there many years ago and now my friend's kid was murdered there ... and youngest is about to move there..... but it is true I have known many cool people there, I oughta' add.

The photos of sea lions having taken over all the docks in Astoria haunt me a bit, why is no one mentioning the continuing effects of continuing leaking Fukushima? and warming oceans. Oceans losing their resources.... but all fake news, right.

Boy I've been depressed today. Does it show?  ; )
