Guest photographer Maryann Nielson captured this beautiful scene at Riverfront Park on a recent frosty morning. Thanks, Maryann!
Guest photographer Tom Miller brings the pretty with this lovely autumn shot of the Santiam River. It must have been awesome to actually be there. Thanks, Tom!
I’m asking for help
This is not something I want to have to do, but I need help. My cat, Butler (that’s him at right), suddenly became very ill over the weekend. His liver is apparently shutting down, and he’s going through a bunch of tests and other things to try to make him better. I’m working on a payment plan with the vet’s office, but it will be at least $250/month, which is more than I can afford.
If you happen to have a few extra dollars you can spare, I would appreciate it more than you can imagine. I very much hate to ask, but I don’t know what else to do. Thank you.
I went hunting for autumn leaves a few days ago, but didn’t find much as of yet. If it hadn’t been for this big tree by the water off of 4th Ave., I was going to question whether we are really in October. It’s been pretty warm here so far, so the trees haven’t quite caught onto the fact we are almost a month into fall.
The ducks appear to be mallards, but I tend to think most ducks look like mallards. It could be because most of the ducks in town are mallards. So these might be mallards.
This photo was taken at the pond swamp thing behind the park and ride on Cascade Highway at the north edge of town.
Hey hey hey hey!
This is my periodic begging for guest photographers. If you’re interested, please see the contribute a photo page for details. I am short on photos at the moment, and with it apparently raining for the next bit, I probably won’t have an opportunity to obtain more until after it passes. Thanks!
