Marc and I went to some ghost towns in centralish OR on the 5th. Dufur wasn't a ghost town but had an amazing old grocer (with old machines and a glass case containing an old projector and some super 8 film !?!?!) and old hotel. The woman who bought the hotel let us in to look around, as it hasn't been open in two years and they are restoring it. Really cool place. Built in 1907. Grass Valley had this bizarre gas station guy who was much more interested in showing is magic tricks than taking my money for the gas... he even showed us the "twin towers burning/Osama" 20 dollar bill trick. Friend OR was an old school house that they "locked" by putting a rock in front of the door. Kent had some really old store structures and a crazy artist guy who made windmills from junk and such things. There seemed about 6 houses that people still lived in. There was an old cafe/gas station with great old pumps out in front. The Dalles is not a shi shi town like I suspected. It's actually really cute, with a lovely theatre for sale downtown. There's a coffee shop type place where the guy made a special soy vanilla shi with raspberry puree smoothy for me. We ate our dinner on a hill overlooking the town and the Columbia Gorge.
Carla says that 33 his suppose to be a good luck year, according to her Quebecois Aunt. But if today forshadows anything that will not be the case. Our house was broken into AGAIN only this time Me and Coda were home, and the guy went into my room. It was pretty loony tunes actually. I came out of the bathroom as Coda was doing her "someone is hurting me bark" (Which is always exaggerated as boys just have to look at her the wrong way and she goes nuts) to see this guy go into my room. I say "What the fuck" and follow him and he's holding the door so I can't go in and I'm yelling "What the fuck!?!" Next thing in my head is to get Coda out of there so I grabbed the phone and went outside. After about 5 minutes the cops came. SIX cars, an unmarked car, and eventually the car with the dog. They checked the house and the guy was gone. I don't know what I would have done had they caught the guy. I'm trying to keep a low profile here for gawd sakes. Turns out that once again the guy got through the downstairs bathroom window (must have been mere minutes after I took a shower...) Anyhow, I wonder if so many cops would have come if I'd have been black? It was a little weird...
Oh, and by some mircale nothing was stolen. My new laptop and my Canon camera would sitting out right there on my bed. Guy could have taken it as he rushed out. I'm really really fucking lucky...
oh ps. this is the $20 911 thing: http://i83.photobucket.com/albums/j318/Tredcrow/money2.jpg
