Fred's first visit to the Oregon Brewers Festival July 22, 2015

First Fred paid his respects to
Linus Pauling who is buried in
the Lake Oswego Pioneer Cemetery.
Our good friend Joe is the caretaker
there so when we visit we usually
stay there....and the neighborhood
is quite peaceful....


Fred's first taste- he and I shared.
We tried an ale from New Zealand.

Some folks take the brew fest as
an opportunity to get dressed up.

The festival is well prepared....

After a bit we had a lamb gyro
with garlic fries.

Okay- I think Fred has had enough!

It's time to leave the Festival and
go to Hubers for a great turkey sandwich
and a Spanish Coffee!

Made in front of us- this gentleman
has been a fixture at Hubers for decades!
Making a Spanish Coffee is an art form.


Back home using public transportation

Traffic was so slow and backed up
I chose to get out and walk the rest of the way.
One of the big reasons we don't
live here any more!
Have a great day and always be safe!


  1. Fred is quite the raconteur with your help. Seems he knows how to enjoy himself, LOL.

  2. Some great shots. Fred has a great sense of balance.
    The line of port-o-potties is funny. But yes, very much needed at a beer fest!

  3. Looks like Fred is wearing himself out. Or are you and Russell wearing him out. Either way I'm enjoying tagging along.

    Have a fabulous day honey. My best to Fred. ♥♥♥

  4. You've got to know the gigantic Gnome lover that I am (my birthday cake this year was of a gnome even) that your post totally rocks! How fun!

  5. Love that Spanish coffee at Hubers. Even wrote a post about it once upon a time. Sounds like you guys are having a terrific time.

  6. It doesn't take much for a gnome to have had enough in the libations department. It looks like everyone is enjoying the trip, though!


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
