Random Images on a Rainy Day

A rainy, wet, damp day here in Portland that ended with this little bit of sunshine in a storefront window on NW Thurman near 24th. Like the Chinese dogs who were his ancestors this guy is the companion for the proprietors of Acanthus, our local upholstery shop. The dog probably has many stories to tell, some of them may be as interesting as the one that lies behind the image below.

Amy Gray and I came across these little protective devices on our walk downtown this morning. Size large (in fact, click the image and it will expand), Trojan Magnums, you have to wonder what happened to the third one in the package. Someone could write the story, the script. The plot would probably be somewhere between the tale of the two who used Amy's side yard for their rendezvous and Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche in Damage. Damage is the Louis Malle movie from 1992. Let's just say if Irons had been using condoms, Malle would have had more than one box of them.
