Update from Catherine and Gerry
We are in sunny Central Oregon where the weather may be cooler but the traffic seems FAR worse than our local Glendale neighborhood. Have had nice visits with our friends in The Dalles, where we spent the first night; Madras, the second two nights, and now in Redmond until Tuesday morning when we head for Oregon Caves for two nights. Weather has been down in the 40s at night (like winter in AZ) but today is supposed to be up in the 90s. Haven't found too much good vegan food but we are surviving. Madras, actually has a health food store/cafe where I had a good salad. And yesterday we had lunch with our friends from Sisters at the Pine Tavern in Bend. Mom and Dad may remember we ate there on January 29, 1979, in honor of my 30th. Glad it was warm enough yesterday to sit out on the patio. We do NOT plan to visit here in the winter ever again so will have to find somewhere else to celebrate in 2009. Thanks for the updates email and blogs! We'll be home again on Friday and back to work for me (and Gerry too probably) on Saturday!
