Me and Paul

Sunny Day in Portland, and that means a bit of bicycling for the companion and me. WE didn't start off without trouble though.

The Companion is convinced that the tires need inflating, so he did. A bit too much. We started out and with in two blocks--BAM!--big explosion. Back tire blew out. So we walked back to the house. And walked over to the bike shop and got new tires. For the front too. Seeing how we've been on these tires from day one, and have biked over 3000 miles on them. I think it is time for a change.

The we went for a bike ride. To see this "Life size statue of Paul Bunyan." Yes he told me we were going to see a "life size" statue of Paul.

I don't believe it. I do not believe that he was that tall.

But this is another one of the companions roadside attractions that he loves so much. Its a statue of a guy with an ax. Wow! But the companion was all excited. He said that since it was such an important person in American History it made up for it not having a sign that says 'roadside attraction'.

Well how about that.

here I am up close next to the feet. They are as big as the companion. Life size. Who does he think he's kidding.

I do like my new flag!


  1. What can I say, Antigone? We humans have our little quirks. I actually preferred Johnny Appleseed. Tell companion that next time YOU pick the roadside attraction that you want

    Antigone--we are so anxious to meet you! We don't care if the companion or our mommies are busy but we have made very SURE that OUR calendar is flexible for the weekend. You MUST have the companion call our mommies and set up a day before this week is over so we can see your new contraption and sniff around for other unusual (to us) items. The companion KNOWS our phone number so there is NO excuse for us not to spend even a few minutes together. We consider this to be a "no excuse" week and if the companion and our mommies don't cooperate we will have to resort to "Plan B" which is chewing up mommy Helen's Sennheiser wireless headphones or mommy Jane's asthma inhaler dispenser.

  3. Antigone, where are you? We miss you. What's going on with you? Are you ok?
