Half Right………

There are some nice gems in here re debate, communication, individual & group identities. Well worth a read.

Vintage Love & Remembrances

“It is a splendid thing to think that the woman you really love will never grow old to you. Through the wrinkles of time, through the mask of years, if you really love her, you will always see the face you loved and won. And a woman who really loves a man does not see that he grows old; he is not decrepit to her; he does not tremble; he is not old; she always sees the same gallant gentleman who won her hand and heart. I like to think of it in that way; I like to think that love is eternal.”

Robert G. Ingersoll

Vintage Sign & History of Oregon Game Management

Photography-State Game Refuge-Oregon-old sign-SwittersB

Origins of Oregon State Game Management

“1892 – Sturgeon fishery peaks with about 35,000 fish landed.

1893 – First combined fish and game administration in the state’s history when the Legislature appointed Hollister McGuire as the State Game and Fish Protector. McGuire initiated the first fish marking program in 1895 by clipping the adipose fin on 5,000 Clackamas Hatchery salmon (32 returned). He also enforced several new game laws, including a limit of 20 game birds which could be sold during the season.

1898 – McGuire released the first ever fin-clipped salmon in Oregon. McGuire drowned on the Umpqua River while in search of a hatchery site this same year.   In his report to the Governor, he cites concerns about the lack of protection for salmon, particularly on the upper Columbia and Snake, and recommended several actions to be taken by the Legislature.”

No Tell Motel: Memories Blown in the Wind

Today, I drove past an old, weather worn sign in a rural area. Not really near any city. Just off an Interstate, but the exit long ago reworked to rob this place of traffic. Little, overgrown bungalow units that saw what? People in transit, in life and travel. Surreptitious dalliances  (that has a nice look doesn’t it…you can borrow it), layovers and laying low. This would have been a quiet, private place to just be, off life’s grid. The sign’s arrow points toward nothing…it’s all been blown away with the wind.
