It’s a rare Memorial Day weekend in Oregon that isn’t a little damp and overcast. Our famous Rose Festival Celebration started on Friday and more often than not Parade Day next week will bring at least a few hours of showers. Nobody minds at all and Portlanders turn out by the thousands to take part in the festivities. The highways to the Oregon coast are always clogged this weekend so we prefer to stay home and have our get aways sometime other than busy holiday weekends. It’s a good time to get the yard in shape for summer barbecues and potlucks. Power washing my two large patios and driveway has been on my to-do list for a long time and when I got a bid of $400 to have the job done by a local contractor my sweet son volunteered to rent the washer and do it for me. It was a BIG, MESSY job and I’m so happy with the results I could jump up and down for joy! The washer was powerful as you can see and I managed to snap a few pictures as my son was getting used to it. Any more power and he could have become airborne.

All systems “go”
I hope you are enjoying a very happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend. Thanks, John. Job well done.
