Our Portland adventure continues in full swing today. This morning we drove from my mother’s house on Puget Island, Washington to visit folks at Portland’s First United Methodist Church. This was the congregation I served as director of community outreach before leaving for seminary. Then it was off to North Plains for lunch with friends Bill Pressly, Carole Douglas and Jim Barlow. My sister Heather and her husband Rick hosted us later in the afternoon. We returned to southeast Portland for dinner with Liz’s cousin Susan and her family. Our final event was a reception for us throw by Janet and Henry Miller. Many of our old friends were there. Mayoral candidate Tom Potter dropped by with his wife to say hello right after his big event with Howard Dean. That is him in this picture with Liz and I and the babies. I’ll be posting a lot more pictures from the day when we get near some high speed internet access.
