Real Men Wear Pink

Bill participated in the Girlfriends' Half Marathon yesterday with Jim West as his walking partner.  They along with 48 other guys were part of the Pink Brigade Guys that raised money for the Pink Lemonade Project here in Vancouver.  The guys raised around $35,000.  Bill made it with a few blisters and a little sore but he made it the whole way.

The Bridges of Lane County

I have wanted to go to Cottage Grove for several years now since meeting my co-worker, Jill.  And had heard of the covered bridges and wanted to see them.  I was in Eugene for two weeks for work and had one day off.  Bill came down to see me to spend my day off with me.  We went to the theater in the morning and early afternoon to see "Tristan and Isadore" on Met Live in HD.  After the opera, we headed down to Cottage Grove to see the bridges so I could take photos of them.  Only one of them is still in use as the main bridge on the road.  The others are preserved in place with the replacement bridges next to them.  Very cool to see them though.
