Last night Dad took us for a test ride in his new Model T. She’s pretty bumpy, it doesn’t help that the seats are just bare springs, and loud! (We had people crack their blinds to watch us go by…)
Thanks for the ride Dad!
No, we weren’t in Orange County. We were in Oregon City! Today we spent the day exploring a bit in the town where we lived when Amy and I were really little before we moved to Damascus.
We met Amy and Ada for lunch at the Singer Hill Cafe. Amy and Maggie couldn’t make it because Charlie threw up in the car on the way to Grandma’s. We missed them very much!
After Amy and Ada headed back home, Theresa and I headed down the hill and wandered to the library book store, Spicer Brothers’ Produce and Tony’s Fish Market. The walk down the hill was much easier than back up, but I did better than I thought I would. :o)
Then we headed down the hill, in the car, to Main Street to find a brew shop to look for soda pop supplies. They had the flavors cheaper than here in town, but the rest of the supplies were more expensive. And the shopkeeper was not very happy when I told her I was buying the rest of my things back at Olympic Drug for a better price. Next time, I’ll stick with Olympic…
But while we were there, we found the Oregon City Municipal Elevator! Since Theresa had never been on it, or knew it existed, and I hadn’t done it since elementary school, we went for a ride to the top to check out the view. It was kind of cool!
the floor at the top had a map of town on it and all the pictures on the wall were two-way pictures of then/now views of different locations in Oregon City
we felt like tourists :o)
Then after taking a wrong turn that led us straight to the freeway (which made it seem much less like an accident), we went to Bob’s Red Mill Store. They probably have just about every kind of flour or dry good you could ever want! It was so fun just to wander around and look at all the different things they had! But our favorite part was the bulk food section! I am quite a fan of bulk food and Bob’s not only had a great selection, but great prices, too! And I really appreciated the file cabinet with all the recipes for them!
Before heading home, we had pizza supper thanks to Dad and Will and stopped and visited Grandma.
I love Sisters’ Day! Why didn’t we do this sooner???
