A story that has made me happy

I just read about this story on Yahoo. Linky here...

Several things in this story are coincidentally related to me. Because, of course, I have to relate ALL things back to me.
  1. He's from Virginia (the state, as am I)
  2. He moved to New York City
  3. He used to work in the engineering field (as I sort of used to, as well, but not as an engineer)
  4. He is walking from Rockaway Beach in NYC (not far from where I live, as the crow flies)...
  5. To Rockaway Beach in Oregon (which is the next town south of where my mother lives on the Oregon Coast).
I was totally amused by the statement in the article that "By air, the trip takes a little more than six hours." As this doesn't account for the 2 to 3 hours of completely harrowing driving it takes to get from the airport in Portland to Rockaway Beach across winding mountainous roads in near constant treacherous weather. Honestly, next time I go visit my mother, I think I may prefer to take a couple of days and walk from PDX to her home.

Here are a few other things that make me happy (no, the general theme is not blurry cell phone pictures):

Georgia pretending to be a serious fashion model in her Winnie the Pooh sunglasses. Tres Chic!

Oh, and in case you were looking for a post about actual knitting, I'm rapidly nearing completion on Georgia's Wispy Cardigan. It's FLYING off the needles. I think I started it on Sunday or Monday.

Going to make her the Tiny Tea Leaves Cardigan next. And yes, I will finish my Villane. I'm working my way back into it.


  1. Looks like he is having a great time, but I am not sure this would have worked for me :-) I am too lazy :-) But, if you go, please don't leave your camera and computer at home - I want daily updates!

  2. Cute picture of your daughter!
