as i strolled through the rose quarter, they were tearing down from the Dew Fest, a mt. dew sponsored event based on extreme sports. looked pretty cool. too bad i missed it. up n. williams was pretty uneventful. there were some nice people out watering or gardening and they all took the time to say hi. n. williams is sparse when it comes to single family homes, so it's a nice respite to the walk. as i entered my hood (or should i say, the hood i love) i was jones'n for something moist on my tougue. i thought about hitting Amnesia, but then as i approzched n. albina, i decided to go vist my tweaker friend. he was still there, hangin' on his porch and as I walked by, in a very sarcastic voice, i yelled "howdy neighbor." he responded in kind as if i were just another joe. (i was a little put off.) for the best.
i was glad to arrive home. i was hot, sweaty, and in need of shedding of clothing. dinner was great and the evening has been enjoyable. it's cooler now and i know i'll sleep well tonight.
oh, and along my walk, i also saw sweatpants and some socks. the socks were in the river.
