How'd you like to walk down the street and suddenly happen upon this? I think all of us have experienced days like his. Your umbrellas turned inside out with your attire looking.......well.....TIRED! Then there's the face. It's the longest face, ever. And don't get me started on the hair. Yup! No one suffers quite like him.
Believe it, or not, he's busking. While striking this pose; if you place money in his jar (located at his feet) he'll immediately stumble backwards as if caught in a strong rain-laden wind. Then he goes back to this position. After observing for a while I couldn't help but notice the brief intermissions to adjust his jaw thereby giving his face a quick chiropractic adjustment. Apparently, if the wind changes his face will stick. =)

There's not much left of the ghost town of Friend, Oregon. Just a schoolhouse, cemetery, a mysterious concrete building, and this old general store and post office. Named after George J. Friend, the town with a brief history is just another casualty of a railroad line being abandoned and, per usual, the town followed suit. It was the final stop of the Great Southern Railroad that ceased operation in 1936.

Obviously, this isn't one of those canine-friendly restaurants where one may dine with their best friend. You can tether him outside all you want, Mr. Dog Owner! Yes, let him watch you through a window while he salivates from the smell emitting from the dining room you comfortably sit but, you cannot deny his sad puppy face! YOU WILL make it up by delivering one fatty of a doggie bag!!

During these anxious times there is a need for privacy with a good friend just to keep one's mind from drowning in the cesspool of existence. A sanctuary where two companions can find a few moments of peace from the barrage of everyday muckraking, hounding, and clamor that impedes our sanity.

The daily lineup of taxicabs wait patiently in front of Portland Union Station for the next batch of train arrivals. Meanwhile, an artist stands next to a streetlight sketching what I'm assuming is a picture of the station. All this on a crisp, but sunny, Saturday afternoon this past March.
