2015.03.29 – Bye Bye Tree

Wayne, Andrew and I met our friends Roberto and Frankie for breakfast at the A.N.D Cafe. I’ve eaten there a few times and it’s really good. I was worried about having to wait a long time though because it’s Sunday, we are a group of five which is just one person too many to make it easy to seat us, and Portlanders LOVE Sunday breakfast/brunch. Luckily we got there at a great time and didn’t have to wait long at all. Our food was amazing as always and kept me full until dinner. Yikes, I don’t even want to think about how many calories I must have consumed.

After breakfast Alice and I went to two different Goodwill stores. We were gone pretty much all afternoon. When I got home I heard some noise in the back yard. I looked out the window and was quite surprised to see that our neighbor had pretty much cut down the entire huge tree that was falling over and pushing down our fence! I went out and helped him push the last giant branch over from our yard to his. It looks so weird with it gone but it was definitely a danger.

Before dinner I had a really long conversation with Natale about the experience of being a teenager, puberty, mood-swings, and so on. I definitely remember being 15-16 and it wasn’t that great so I really feel for him.

Today I learned that people are still looking at our cat video!
