GO WEST YOUNG MAN


Ok....maybe not young any more, but heading west....Pendleton, Oregon is a nice little town known for it's annual Rodeo in which they expect in the excess of 100,000 people for their 100th year in September.  The area use to be the largest supplier of wool products in the United States and the name for the "Pendleton" shirt.
We just hung out, ate, went to the farmer's market and relaxed.

The ride up "the" 84, although it's freeway was a pretty nice ride and some pretty cool waterfalls....

Ok. Have fun in OR we love it there.
I have a suite reserved for you at the CVI. It is the Manzanita Room with a balcony. I have the wine walk from 4 till 7. You can have breakfast with me friday morning, I will be at work. I have until Tue. to cancel the room or they will charge your credit card, oh wait I did not give them a credit card, oh well.
I guess we pissed the girl from Spain's hosts off, they took her to SF yesterday. We are still going to take her on the 29th, when I find out what they saw I can let K know and she can get some cool hints from her dd on what else we should show Marina.
Love Michelle
