The view from happy hour at Portland City Grill:

The Friendliest Baristas in Mississippi

They can be found in Rankin County next to the Piggly Wiggly. When I called them friendly, there were a few 'guffaws' from a couple of customers, I think mainly about the snarky one coming in and out of the back who wouldn't let me take her picture. I like 'em all anyway, even the camera-shy, snarky one.

While taking this photo, a construction worker was across the street talking unabashedly about being stuck needing to "take a f*ckin' sh*t today" and not having any place to go.

Mt.Angel Pumpkins

I am compelled to take photos of pumpkins. These are from JoAnn and Leonard's farm, called "cinderella pumpkins."

MAX is coming

Deadbeat Dad

This spray-painted sign at the light-rail stop at Lloyd Center has been here since the middle of summer. Of course, I can't help wondering how many deadbeat dads got called as a result.

Farm Chairs

These were all lined up nice and neat today in Hood River Valley.

Where Pie Goes When It Dies

A damn fine cup of coffee and rhubarb pie at Cooper's in Mt. Tabor:
