Tomorrow we are likely to take rout shone, down I-5 to arrive in Trout Lake by 10, Image leaving at 3:30 and returning up the back side of the Cascades.

We might even take a peek at the Church of God, Zillah, if we're not running too far behind schedule at that point.


Ed: Gee it is the 17th and I just got up and Trudy ts talking about getting up. correction today is the 16th, Betters the chance we will
be seeing you tomorrow.

On Wednesday we saw a number of services for the shipping industry on the bay, however Astoria didn't seem particularly Nautical.
BTW, Ft Wayne sits on Three Rivers. Rather significant to a fort having been located there.

We are going to breakfast at Jumping Jacks.

Ed: Yea, I am glad you showed up. :wink:
All kidding aside, it was good to see you again and it was an honor to meet Mrs.H and your friend Richard from the Japanese Baptist church in Seattle. Thanks again for letting us know about the shaped note singing event. I always enjoy them, and now have a little better idea of what it is about. Trudy is going to order one of the books and have it sent to our home address in Florida. I was really glad to see how much she enjoyed her first exposure to shaped note singing. She was also blown away by the scenery across Washington and Oregon although my cautious driving up to Trout Lake from I 84 made her nervous, especially the bridge across the Columbia River. Coming down that road on the river side was worse. And I used to think we had some miserable roads in the Adirondacks. I much prefer the rolling hills of central Florida. As I have mentioned these roads with little and sometimes no shoulder are intimidating for me.

47b Idumea. You guys (Trudy and Ed) are in the back row of the tenors, i.e. front & center to the camera.

Ed: That is us. The Lady on the other end of the row with the big hat and the dog is Karen. When we arrived early she gave us a quick lesson on reading shaped notes. She is also the secretary of the group who sponsored this singing.

Yep, Karen Ŵillard--ignore the circumflex-laden on the capital w--is surely the most prominent Sacred Harper in the northwestern United States. She is also the compiler of "An American Christmas Harp", which any of you who like variety in your Christmas music ought to consider getting.

Ed: We are beginning to find our way around this section of Vancouver, but on Friday we will be moving down to Jensen Beach in Portland on the other side of the Columbia river. It is much closer to the convention center where the ABC Biennial in being held. We will have to move but Trudy will be preaching at Ceder
Hills on the 10th.

We drove down there this morning and the park looks very nice and is just across the street from a huge Shopping center that has most all of the big Box stores but very few eating places. We had Lunch at Jimmy. John's. Portland parking is scarce, therefore expensive. Bus service is good, buses start running early(5:30 AM) and run in to the next early morning (2:00 A.M) so they should serve us well.

We are looking forward to seeing some of our ABCNYS friends as well as many like Hauro and his wife from other ABC Regions, Just as we look forward to Seeing several CBF Friends in Atlanta.

Ed: We made the move to Jensen Beach RV site Yesterday; a real link with a few pictures be patient. :) http://www.jantzenbeachrv.com/contact.php

Went exploring at lunch time and found a delightful little restaurant "Hidden Bay cafe" Most of the seating is on a wooden deck next to the boat dock which was filled with sailboats. with the heat wave (91 degrees) we elected to eat inside. As we crossed the deck toward the entrance we where greeted with a spectacular view of a snow capped mountain framed in a forest of sailboat mast. Wouldn't you know it, I did not have my camera and we both had left our phones on a charger in the coach. I hope to get back over there some time in the next two weeks, to get some picture

You should be very near the Pendleton Wool plant and the home of Jantzen bathing suit factory. Might be worth a tour. I know some of my friends with large families and frugal Moms used to drive down to Oregon for back to school shopping as there was no sales tax on clothing in Oregon. Its now up to 10% in most of Washington state.
Don't despair if your job and your rewards are few, remember that the mighty oak was once a nut like you!

Ed: Really Mrs. H. after we spent a fair amount at the Vancouver Mall on Thursday, we found that there is no sales tax in Portland, not sure if that is permanent or just for this weekend. Perhaps as an enticement to clothe the cyclist. :wink:

And yes I have noticed that I have been misspelling Jantzen, I was not aware of a Pendleton Mills Other than in Pendleton, I had been to that one back in the 70's.

The mill in Pendleton (and the one in Washougal, Washington) is still in operation, but the corporate headquarters and the main store are in Portland. (Basing my assertions on a perusal of Wikipedia.)

Google says it's at 8500 SE McLoughlin Blvd, Portland, OR 97222 Phone: (503) 535-5786

Google seems split on whether it's in Portland or Milwaukie (note spelling).

Lotsa of memories in these travelogs. Seattle of course where I went to college. Vancouver, BC is one of my favorite places but have not been there for 15 years. But I realize you are probably talking about Vancouver WA just across the Columbia from Portland- my dad worked there until we moved to San Francisco area when I was 7. Spent several summers as a youngster in Yakima (grandparents), have relatives in Portland, Gresham, Milwaukie, Boring, The Dalles and Olympia. Trying to develop a trip with my brother (now lives in San Jose), and my sister (now lives in Huntsville) to visit NW relatives. But scheduling is a problem right now (brother has new contract job due end of August, sister needs to work as a sub teacher starting in early August).

I'll be at the Resource Fair at the CBF Convention on Wednesday evening this week as well as a CBF golf tournament Wednesday (along with my son). But we are not going to any other CBF offerings.

Our church still contributes to the CBF but not even the Minister gets involved in CBF matters these days (we are mostly about hands-on local ministries and our worship). Discovery Center is limping along - only 13 people in Summer Session so far but summer is usually difficult due to vacations.

any Ideas

Ed: We are Flying from Portland to Atlanta tomorrow, haven't any Idea where we will be when, except for the NBC lunch and the 25th anniversary dinner. Of course we hang out in the resource center a lot. That is also where Bruce Gourley and John Pierce can be usually be found at the Nurturing Faith booth. We will be back here friday evening for the ABC Mission Summit {Biennial}.

Trudy and I have not been members of a CBF affiliated church for years (not many in the North East) but since moving to Clermont FL. we have attended The Church On The Drive in Orlando several times. However Trudy has led the ABC churches where she has pastored to contribute to Central Seminary which is sponsored by CBF and ABC. During Trudy's pastorate at Burnt Hills NY she led them to host one of the CBF/NE spring meetings. Above our tithe which goes to what ever church we visit on the first Sunday of the month, we also Contribute to individual CBF missionaries and affiliate entities. I have attended all but two CBF National assemblies since 1997, Trudy has made all but 3.

Boring relatives can be a lot of fun.

Mrs H had an aunt who went to the Oregon Normal School in Irrigon, Oregon, where she had a roommate, a townie, "Clara Corrigan from Irrigon, Oregon"! I kid you not.

Will be on the look out for any of you from about 4:00- 6:00pm on Wednesday. Plan to drive home to Huntsville Wed night- about 3:30 hours.

And the truth is my cousin Ron Noren and his wife Ione who live in Boring are rather boring as I remember. Of course I have not seen them in 25-30 years when we had a Noren reunion in Boring. He was a Funeral Director before retiring.
