My friend Debi is incredible. She became an angel when my first guide dog needed a place to recover for a few weeks after leg surgery. When I felt like part of me was missing with my guide gone, she kept me informed on Pantera's recovery and cared for her like her own. We soon became good friends and over the past ten years have travelled together with our Steves and I look forward to any opportunity to visit them. You know that person that you come stay at their home, they feed you and go out of their way for you and somehow they have you feeling like it is their privilege that you came! That is Steve and Debi. I hope someday we will be able to return their graciousness in our home (however, I've got to take some serious cooking lessons to make that happen!)
We enjoyed visiting the Portland Market where we found a fun painting for our home (tradition that you take a photo with the artist), yummy pumpkin pie fudge (yes!), yellow gloves to match my yellow purse and hopefully soon, yellow coat (if you see one, let me know)
Cricket loved her time playing with her friends: Culver, Dakota, and Desma. They welcomed her with open paws. Honda, the cat, I think was happy to see Cricket go.
As we hang our new picture of Mt Hood in our dining room, we have so many wonderful memories of this area.
