Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught some beautiful light at the Jordan Bridge, a covered bridge at Pioneer Park. My, but I do love that bridge. Thanks, Maryann!
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson brings us this lovely bit of autumn at Bush Pasture Park in nearby Salem. Look at all that color… beautiful. Thanks, Maryann!
Want to help a kitty?
My cat, Butler, is very ill right now with a kidney problem, and his medical bills have really added up. If you happen to have a few dollars to spare, could you help me get him well? I’ve set up a GoFundMe page. So far, his bills have come to about $1200, of which I’ve already paid around $500. He and I thank you for your consideration.
I’ve also uploaded several images to a Fine Art America gallery, if you would like to buy a print or greeting card. All funds raised would go directly to Butler’s medical bills. Thank you.
And a huge thank you to Santiam Veterinary Hospital for their hard work in getting Butler on the road to recovery.
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson took this simply beautiful photo of an autumn leaf stuck in a fence. So cool. Thanks, Maryann!
Please help find Stanley the therapy dog!!
A therapy dog from Santiam Hospital went missing earlier this week, so if you’re in the area, please be on the look out for him. He’s an 85 pound labradoodle. Click on the thumbnail at right to see what he looks like. Contact info is on this Craigslist ad, and there’s a Facebook group with several photos of Stanley.
The Facebook page announced there is a $5000 reward being offered. Please help find him. Thank you.
And now we know. Yesterday, I posted a photo of a barn between here and Sublimity either undergoing construction or being torn down. Guest photographer Maryann Nielson happened to take a picture of it two days ago, and sent it to me.
I’m sure the owners had their reasons for taking the barn down, but it’s still sad to see it go. It was a cool barn.
