Peace Rally in Portland

B and I broke out Scout’s tie-dyed bandanna for the peace rally this weekend. We joined a huge crowd for a walk through downtown Portland. The rally started and ended on our front lawn (the South Park blocks). We started out just opening our living room window. We could hear the speakers (hello mayor!) and the music. When it was time to march we just went downstairs and voila. Front row! We broke off from the crowd at one point to get the latest version of Quicken at the local Office Depot, but then rejoined and finished the walk – a consumerist splinter group… Nice walk. Someone said “Dogs for peace.” to Scout. It dawned on me that we don’t really know her politics, but she did look ‘at home’ in the tie-dye. 🙂
