It's Been Too Long

Well I can honestly say, it has been too damn long. I would like to first and foremost apologize for any disappointments my absence has caused. But foreword and onward with the bloggin' right? Let's see, what has been going on in my little world? I have recently returned from a blissful stay in Sunriver, Oregon. For those of you not familiar with the town, I'll walk you through it. It is a quaint little tourist town, 20 minutes outside of Bend full of not only life but, my lord, trees! I don't believe I have ever seen so many trees in my life combined. I felt the oxygen going through my brain like a car on the autobahn. And the stars, I don't think words could describe how many stars I saw at night. It was as if God took a paintbrush and just started splattering the sky. Did you know there are more stars in the sky than there are grains of sand in this world? Yes, that many. Yet I also learned that space is so huge that you do not see stars while up there, because they are far and few between. However, I think I may need to double check my sources, considering that the people of Oregon look like they haven't turned down a good time since the 1970s, if you catch my drift. I'll keep you posted. Besides the beautiful scenery, I had many first, including white water rafting and horseback riding. Two words for ya'll...sore-ass. Those rapids were ruthless, not to mention Rushmore. He was my trusty horse. But boy, could he eat, and from what I could smell the grass wasn't agreeing with him. Silly Rushmore. Overall it was a great trip, full of laughter, nature and all around good times. Thanks Oregon!

It is beautiful here. I'm glad you enjoyed your visit.

There is a city ordinance in Bend that doesn't allow street lights. People want to be able to see all those stars. Makes for a gorgeous night-time sky, but damn hard to locate anything at night while driving!
