Things I've seen in North Portland

Last summer I did a post on things I've seen while working in my North Portland garden. It's a good one.

But I think I should start a list of things I've seen in North Portland. So this is my first entry.

Ahem.

Today I saw a man crossing the street at N. Greeley and N. Rosa Parks Way. He was pushing a jogging stroller. But instead of a baby in the baby stroller, was a case of beer. I think it was Bud Light.

The end.

More will be added as time goes on, but feel free to add to the list, too.

That is a great sighting and a great idea. Keep 'em coming.

I'm venturing into your neighborhood on Thursday. I'll bring my camera.

Related. Man going by with child in wagon. Man returning from convenience store with child now walking, beer in wagon. But this was in the SW. :-)

Sign seen at the corner of Sandy Blvd. and Halsey in Hollywood District: "PLEASE HELP".
I think it was one of those signs typically used by beggers at the side of the road looking for a handout. But at this point, it was just hooked to a light post. No human being in sight.

Sounds reasonable.

*makes note to buy jogging stroller*

I push a double jogging stroller, does that mean I can carry two cases? Bottles though, and no bud, I'm more of an Anchor Steam, Sam Adams, or Nut Brown Ale girl. So many choices.

Sometimes, at the end of the day, I wish it was a case or two... :)

Oops! I was signed in on my computer under a friend's name, who doesn't have kids and doesn't live in North Portland, so I'll repost this under my own name! And she'll delete her/my comment. :-)

Ha! Okay, I'm going to be on the lookout for funny things in North Portland. (I often don't have to look any further than my kids!)

If you see any farm animals, please text me and I'll come running. I saw a peacock the other day by Pier Park.

Hi :) I lurk on your blog. I live in NOPO too- I saw a possum on the corner of Greely and Lombard (behind the bank) in the middle of the day. Gross.

When I lived on Flint, across from the School near Emanuel, I didn't want to see things. It was scary down there at night (I walked in the middle of the street when I walked to the store down on Broadway).
