Going Dutch


 Gig for the Dutch Society. It can be daunting when the kids are older and most of them have never heard of us. I also didn't know how our Portland "punk rock style" set would go over with the elderly Dutch Denizens. After we got them all on board it was great. The Dutch band called us a hard act to follow and the everybody was rocking to our music. This gig was extra special because Olive's family is Dutch. They turned out and got to see our show as well as the big crowd's pleasant reaction to us. I gave my son some money before the show so he could try all the kinds of Dutch food being offered, he took these pics and used his lunch money to buy a classic Dutch plastic leggo,killer robot...just like the ones in the old country. Thank you to Olive's Mom for looking after him while we did the clown thing. We made a lot of great new friends and had a fun family event.

Serious art patron

I painted this

I soon got a message 
Then soon met a serious art patron
Under a years old grand opening sign
I was eating a burrito


She stuffed the cash in my hand
                                                      We pretended it was a drug deal.
                                                                                                   We wedged the painting in her bike.
                                                                                                                                         See serious.


Thank you
Safe ride
Serious art patron


I like how it looks in the mirror

On the corner

I love that mint grows all around. 

Walking back from a cafe I noticed a cool kid picking 

some at the corner.

 I smiled and said "Ya might want to grab from the

top-".

 Before finishing my thought, he sprung up and told 

me he was fine thankyou.

He described his long 6 year cooking history and 

even his childhood job landscaping. 

I sipped my coffee and moved on.

 Had he let me finish I would have said

 "- because you are picking where dogs pee ...

All darn day." 

His vast 6 years culinary career did less to inform 

him than my 6 years living on that corner.
