More About Yesterday's Trivia and The Race

Portland, OR.

58 deg. overcast, SE wind @ 6 mph.

Forecast = Overcast with a chance of rain, then a chance of rain in the afternoon. High of 72F. Winds less than 5 mph. Chance of rain 30%.

After posting yesterday, I decided to try to find more information about the Mill Ends Park. At the same time, one of my followers,  Retired Rod, found the same info I did and sent this link in a comment. (Thanks Rod)   The best info that Rod and I found is on Wikipedia and here's the Link to the Wikipedia page. If you have a little time click on the link and read about it. It's really kind of interesting. ; )

Like I kind of figured, Jeff didn't come out here yesterday. He called in the morning and said that he had a lot to do and wouldn't be coming.

So, most of the day was spent watching Race stuff on TV. As it turned out, the race wasn't as exciting as it might have been because Jimmy Johnson definitely had a car that was faster than the competition, and was quite a distance out front when it mattered.

Of course the broadcasters tried to hype everything up, but there really wasn't much excitement.

After the race was over, Linda found a couple Harry Potter movies on TV and she and Jim watched them until almost midnight.
Today, I don't think there's any real plans. I'm pretty sure Jeff will be here for most of the afternoon so Jim and Linda will be spending time visiting with him.

Did you know that on this date in 1874 - Levi Strauss began marketing blue jeans with copper rivets?
