Hello blog visitor. Meet Paul. Paul Bunyan. He lives in my part of town in North Portland. He's a big boy. Originally created as temporary art in 1959 for the Oregon Centennial Exposition, he has continued to live and thrive out here in NoPo, and was even moved and relocated a few feet to make way for the new light rail. He wore a hard hat and safety vest during that move. I particularly like his axe. And though you can't see it, he does have a red hankee in his back pocket. (Actually, you can see it here.) He's such a bear. Gggggrrrrrrrrr.
There are lots of Paul Bunyan statues statues out there. I'm particularly fond of those that include his friend, Babe the Blue Ox. Here's one I've been to, and have a nice picture somewhere of AdRi standing under Babe's blue balls.
