Bicycles and Dinner With Jeff

Portland, OR.

57 deg. rain, SE wind @ 7 mph.

Forecast = Overcast with rain. High of 63F. Winds from the SE at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 80% with rainfall amounts near 0.3 in. possible.

It drizzled off and on all day yesterday, but at times, the sun almost peeked through the clouds. That didn't stop Jeff from riding his bicycle over here in the afternoon though, and he arrived about 1:30 or so.

You see, he's used to the rain and rides his bike all year long, no matter what the weather is. In fact, Jeff hasn't owned a car since he moved out here in the mid 90's. Heather has an older car that she uses to go to work if the weather is too nasty, but mostly she rides a bike almost every day too.

Anyway, the afternoon was spent talking to Jeff and solving the problems of the world. ; )  Then about 5:30, they all headed over to the Jubitz Travel Center where they had dinner at the Cascade Grill. Both Jim and Linda said that the food was very good and the service was fine, but a little slow.

After they came back here, they talked some more until it was time for Jeff to head back home.

Not an exciting day, but a very good one, visiting with Jeff. : )

Did you know that on this date in 1819 - Bicycles were first seen in the U. S. in New York City? They were originally known as "swift walkers."
