The two sitting at the back, smiling at the camera, are most excellent emergency room doctors. They came to Portland for a few days to try to line up work once their residencies are completed. If you happen to have any useful information along those lines, please get in touch. We had hoped to eat our dinner out under the cherry trees, but wouldn’t you know that the first raindrops to fall since early July would choose this time to put in an appearance. The front deck was a pleasant enough back-up. We just handed out sweaters and fired up the grill…and Noami and Ian are still hot to move to Portland. Woohoo.
