Portland house

Today we drove to Portland to see some old friends. We met John and Jai Forney at the house of their son, Jon, and his girlfriend Rachel. They're going to get married this September, and this was our first chance to meet Rachel. We all went out for pizza and conversation.

John was our priest in Alaska when our boys were young, in the late eighties. Their two sons and our two sons were fast friends, and Jai was a pre-school teacher for all of them. Lots of good memories.

Jon and Rachel live in a funky old neighborhood in NE Portland with lots of old houses, big trees, and narrow streets. Since we got there a little early, I made this sketch. Colored it later.
