Beautiful Portland, Phone & Update

A few days ago Lovely Ivy and I enjoyed a beautiful afternoon hiking around Portland's Washington Park and rose garden.  We love how we live in a relatively affordable part of the outskirts of the city and in just ten minutes we can be downtown.  And Washington Park is situated in the foothills with a great view of Mount Hood.  We're always happy walking through big green trees with a pleasant cool breeze.  The Pacific NW suits us well.

I've been pleased with a new smartphone we recently invested in: AT&T's "tilt".  I'm able to keep tabs on the business and get notified whenever new email comes in.  I was tempted to go with an iphone and also with the new Gphone by google.  But I can't use an iphone in Europe ,while I can unlock the "tilt."  It has gps and I can read MS Word documents on it too (it has a windows operating system) which is good for my line of work.  The monthly price was the best too.

Ivy had a very successful minor operation performed yesterday and the hospital we were at (OHSU) perched on a hill overlooking the city felt more like a retreat center or hotel (mostly) than a hospital.  She is doing great and recovering quickly and will probably be back at Pilate's tomorrow ;)
