During my walk in the city, I became a part of nature. Sort of

Tree-fro? Far out, man!

Is this the newest hairstyle? No, it's not. It's just another example of the digital camera being held low and too close to my face. I love trees because they are so beautiful to look at. People, please protect trees and nature. Thanks. We need trees and they need us to realize how much we need them on the planet.

Maybe during the NBA basketball season I'll talk about 'tree frows' (or 'tree fhrows') which is what I call badly missed free throws. Or when basketball players don't make many free throws.

Yeah, I call it 'talk' coz it's just like we are together, even though we're not. haha Have a wonderful week!
I added a few words to the above post to explain that the digital camera was held low and it gave the illusion that I'm tall and the tree was near my head but it was not. Of course most people knew this. I did not change or edit the photo.

Sidewalks to Fast Food Sightseeing in NE Portland

He sometimes uses his head to give props to fast food. But he doesn't really use his head to prop up fast food signs. It only looks that way in this photo, and actually he's way below the sign. And yes, 'he' is me.

Burger King was one of the restaurants I saw as I walked on the sidewalk in NE Portland, Oregon. Going for a walk is fun and helps me work up an appetite for fast food. haha My buddy was going to meet me later in the evening so I didn't eat at Burger King this time. But I did order coffee, soda or a snack at other BK restaurants during my trip.

I try to be as objective as possible, but I regularly provide my opinion, combined with occasional humor and other topics that come up (or come to mind) when I'm hanging out with friends, or by myself, having a snack, meal or soft drink. Take care and have a great day!

Photo memories live forever

Walking around on sidewalks
in Portland, Oregon, I snapped
some digital photos. Yes, I was hungry and
that's why my mind was on food. But
I was waiting to hang out with my buddy
and wound up eating some place else.

I'll post more photos from my trip over the next couple of weeks. Have a great weekend! Begin now? Yeah sure. Why not?! Have fun! I like to begin my pre-weekend celebration with a soda pop! I'm gonna drink one right now. Well yeah, you probably aren't reading this "right now" even though to you this is "right now"... I need my soda, as I'm sure you can tell. Take care. Bye.

Thanks Rampai !!!

Hi Rampai. This post is just for you! Thank you for your kindness to me in my blog and in our online friendship. We have never met in person, but it's obvious you care about people. In this world that's hard to find. It's great to know you! I like that you are such a nice gal.

Your blog is very interesting! I enjoy reading about your family, the animals in your family and your Thai meals. When I visit your blog, I get hungry because the Thai foods look so delicious! I'm always ready to see your next post. God and Buddha bless you!

Feeling Better!

This kind of "crumb-y"--
only crumbs left---
means it was yummy!

Two weeks ago Saturday, when I was feeling crummy, it turned out to be bronchitis. After taking medication for bronchitis and getting plenty of rest, today I feel much better. So I’d rather look back at my yummy snack that Saturday.

We kind of improvised and ate Krispy Kreme Mini Crullers at a local convenience store that has some small tables where customers can eat, talk, and in my case try to forget I was sick. I sipped on a latte, too, and had a some fun.

When I started feeling better, I went in search of donuts and bought Krispy Kreme Doughnut Holes.

They didn't last long because we shared them. I called our few minutes of fun a donut hole party. haha

No, I haven't been living on donut holes. I've been eating a lot of Thai Jasmine rice with melted cheese, chicken noodle soup, crackers, Sprite and whatever else makes my stomach feel good.

If you think of me as one of your friends, thanks! You are welcome to hang out here any time. Have a great week!

Donut Hole Party is short but sweet!!

Yes, donut hole parties are fun!
But it was getting cool outside so this one only lasted a few minutes. Then we went right back inside, and I got these photos ready to show everyone -- because
I'm a nice guy. Wish you could have been here.

The two small containers of Krispy Kreme Cake Doughnut Holes ($2.49 apiece x 2 = $4.98) were bought at one of the local Jacksons Food Stores.

We waited tonight until it was almost dark outside and then had a donut hole party. At least that's what I called it.

In the above photo, Mom and I are taking the seals (protective
tapes) off the plastic containers so we could open them and get
the 'doughnut holes' out.

They were yummy! Dad took the photos. Dolly tried to get into the action. haha

Love Your "Neighbors on the Internet"

Good afternoon! Some of the nicest people I know are probably asleep or just waking up while I am writing this post. It's now late afternoon here, but early morning or still night there. Who knows, maybe I'll be sleeping when you visit my blog. Well, I'm glad you are here!

I would like to thank the best friends of this blog for their kindness to me over the past three months, a time when I really needed friends. I plan to write more about why they were the difference in my life when I was feeling down. For now, I just want to say 'Thank You!!!'

Planet Earth can be a very lonely place even though there are billions of us humans. However, thanks to the Internet, we have the opportunity to make many new friends, share our ideas, thoughts, experiences and learn a lot, too. And that's pretty cool if you ask me!

Could our friendships with other bloggers be the way to gradually bring about a transformation inside of our hearts and minds, which also could lead to greater understanding of each other, working together on helping to end or at least significantly reduce world hunger, disease and war (to name three)... And potentially bring about peace on earth? I don't know the answer to that question. But it's certainly worth a try. Sometimes I joke around on this blog. But in this post I'm being serious and hope it's obvious.

What I wrote about (and I'll refer to it as) to "love our neighbors on the Internet" is a great idea. By love, I mean wanting the best for someone else, which includes kindness and friendship, and it can last forever. If you receive that kind of 'love', then make sure you also give this kind of love to others who might really need a friend! Okay? I hope you will. Let's all do our best and then we will erase some of the sadness out there and replace it with happiness!

There are many people, too, that we spend time with and some were our role models when we were growing up, so I would like to recognize one who really is a special person in my life. I'll be back next time. Take care.
