My sister-in-law and I went to the Portland Farmers Market 
at Portland State University. the first part of October.
This is the Simon Benson House , home of the Portland State Alumni Association.
It had a sign that said, "Portland State University Alumni Association Welcomes You".
What a welcome! 
The first weekend in October; Farmer's Market, food, music, 
people relaxing and enjoying themselves and each other!




For those in the Portland area, 
or any of you that want to come visit, :)
it's open March - October, 8-2; November - December, 9-2.

Really helpful!: 
Because of my stroke, (at least I use that as an excuse!) I am continually checking a dictionary, thesaurus, spell check, but one thing that has been particularly helpful is the grammar check. Please excuse any errors that I make and tell me! :)
