It is always interesting to see what Beet's auto repair has out on their front lot. Someone there has a sense of humor. This creative Halloween creature (below) was fashioned from the hood of a car. I wonder who on their staff is responsible for the changing display...certainly this new item qualifies as a work of art. During the recent trip to Seattle I photographed a glass item (below right)..Now I notice that it employs many of the same graceful shapes and "rhythm" that the car-hood-monster has. Which one is more beautiful? I like them both.

Oregon has had a wonderful October, many days have felt just like summer, but according to the weatherman it's time to say goodbye to all that, at least for the next several days. I own some Helly Hansen rain gear, so I can always walk to Montavilla, even if it rains a torrent. It's a favorite destination, about a 2.5 miles round-trip for me. I sometimes have a coffee and a pastry at Bipartisan cafe or the new Pastry girl. (Yeah, I know pie calories negate the benefits of the walk).
