Picture with Labrador dog on grass

I took this picture of Molls yesterday at the park! #bestfriend #labsofinstagram #LabrasaurausRex #labradorable #BurrowOwl

 

A new carpet design

This is the new #pdxcarpet design. Everybody in Portland collectively hates it and is pist about the design. It reminds me of a plastic laminate from a Friendly’s bathroom and the smell of cleaning chemicals. #keepthecarpet #ThereWasNothingWrongWithTheOldDesign What does it remind you of?

 

Old school bag design

This is the old design which reminds me everytime of how incredible it is that I can travel in a metal tube through space and time and arrive on the other side of the globe in just a few hours when it takes months to get there on a bicycle, but most importantly it reminds me I am home. #pdxcarpet #keepthecarpet

 

I should buy a boat

Definitely.
