Multnomah Falls & Benson Bridge, 1942

My uncle Felix took this image, up the Columbia River Gorge, using a vintage folding camera. As today, it was a beautiful outing to head up the Gorge on the Old Scenic Highway. Friends & family, from out of town, were always taken ‘up the Gorge’. Here Multnomah Falls is partially shown, with the Benson Bridge ( a footbridge) separating the upper/lower portions of the falls.

sometimes true……

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”  H. L. Mencken

stash: vintage canning jars…….

A few of you may have followed our exploits over the last several years over at Hoarding Woes & You. There, I chronicled our cleanup of my Mom’s and Aunt’s massive hoards. Not long ago, we discovered a long concealed (forgotten) stash of canning jars beneath our (my Aunt’s) home that appear to have been deposited there in the 1960’s along with stashes of water, canned foods, fuel etc. With the assistance of  a stalwart friend (Magpie Ethel) we removed hundreds of the canning jars of a dozen shapes and sizes. We don’t ‘can’. Now we have this large collection to sort, assess value and hopefully sell. Remember if you stash your survival supplies beneath your house in a dark crawl space tell someone you trust. Otherwise someone else will have the surprise 60+ years later of discovering the cache.

Vintage: Elephant Car Wash Sign

A Rancho Mirage (California) landmark since 1966, I had wanted to shoot this for several years, at night. Finally, the opportunity presented itself. I took some at a distance (my wife’s favorite) and some up close and beneath.
