Bobbie the Wonder Dog and Silverton, Oregon

"For inspiration I visited the Oregon Garden in Silverton, Oregon.  A very quaint little town if ever there was a quaint little town.  I learned the story of Bobbie the Wonder Dog who walked from Indiana back to his family's home in Silverton, Oregon-now that is one determined Canis Lupus Familiaris. The poor beast returned with his pads worn to the bone having-are you ready-crossed the Rockies in the winter!  Yes, it's nearly unbelievable.

But I digress.  Here are some photos that I took of the water garden-my favorite part of the Oregon garden.  Have you ever seen such strange lily pads?  I thought they were plastic at first glance, but no.  They are as real as my wet nose!"

It was like this when I found it. Honest.

  10. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and
    entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I'm very happy I found this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  12. Have you ever looked inside the mirror and questioned what was
    missing? Your clothes are stylish, your selected socks truly match,
    and you are sporting freshly polished footwear, but some thing is off.
    The answer is probably tag carrera. Even a simple piece of tag heuer carrera calibre 36 can unite your outfit
    together.

  16. Basically cleansing, scrubbing and generally
    concentrating on the skin can purely be thought of as a remedy for symptoms, not
    causes. It is one of the most common teenager woes is
    the problem of acne, also known as pimples, zits, blemishes, etc.
    A significant minority of them have acne and zits before they stop
    menstruation.

  17. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think about if you added some great pictures or
    videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is
    excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could undeniably
    be one of the most beneficial in its field. Fantastic blog!
