Anne and I went up to Oregon this weekend to visit her grandmother. We try to make this trip at least 4 times a year, and the Autumn trip is always our favorite. The changing leaves, and cool weather restore a lot of our hit points, and this year getting away from the chows in the house gave us an extra 2d4 that we didn't even realize we needed until we had them.
We always stay in Ashland, and every time we visit, we don't want to come back to Los Angeles. I think we have officially made it our dream to eventually retire there.
While we were there, I took this picture, which you can embiggen at flickr via the magic of clicking:
"Anne's a hairdresser and I'm a writer, so when we saw these calaveras right next to each other in an Ashland storefront this weekend, I had to stop and take a picture.
Unfortunately, I had to choose between having a slight reflection on the glass, or only having one of them in focus, so I opted to share this one. Trust me, it's better than the alternative."
I'll upload some of the other pictures I took, mostly of changing leaves and shockingly tame deer when I get some of this actual work that piled up while I was gone done.
