I heart Oregon. I love the dismal, dreary days of late fall/early winter. The grey seething ocean, rugged rocky cliffs and damp, dark evergreens somehow do it for me.
I might have mentioned this to one or two other human beings, but I've been taking field trips lately. Going exploring. Today took me westward over the hills and far away to Vernonia, Mist, and Clatskanie. I've been itching to get to Astoria for some reason, but settled for this highway 26-47-30 loop today. It was magical, desolate and...misty. It seemed every twist and turn revealed another dramatic fog bedecked valley or romantically decrepit farmhouse. Also a beast of an old furry cow chewing its cud. I was lucky to encounter only light rain and realized this winding way is best traveled in fair weather. I'm glad I did it in the glorious periwinkle half-light before things get shady and slidy all up in there.

So I was all dressed up in my Godzilla suit enjoying cupcakes and cookies and then this weird zombie smeared with blood grabbed my wrist and dragged me to all of these other fun parties with Luis Vuitton purse totting bondage otter birthday cakes and female Hulk Hogans and snuggies...
I know, you were rabidly awaiting the results of that dismembered bear! Well, in accordance with my brother's initial wish "I want to get in this thing. Can we make this my Halloween costume?" We made it happen. It took us a little longer than I'm sure he anticipated, but we were set to go by late afternoon and he drove off fully bear suited and sweaty to his first holiday engagement. My favorite part was definitely the stuffed stomach and butt. Or maybe the giant head. Or maybe just...the whole thing. Hahaha.
