scutigera house centipede. Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon

When Cheyenne pointed out this beasty in our laundry room I couldn’t believe it. I’d never seen anything like it. A quick google search identified it as a common house centipede. If it’s so common why haven’t I ever seen one? Apparently they’re notorious for infesting first floor apartments in old buildings. Which I guess makes us glad that we live on the 2nd floor and only have to venture down to the basement to do the laundry.

Centipedes are predators that hunt and kill bugs, larvae, and spiders and can be considered beneficial. Mildly poisonous but harmless to humans… they say.

Willamette River Bridges. Portland, Oregon

Portland, Oregon

Standing on the Morrison Bridge looking north. I’m like the composition of this image, but it’s too bad that there was so much traffic. The bridge bounced up and down with each passing car and I couldn’t get a precise shot even with a tripod.

1949 34' Stephens Sedan Cruiser

1949 34' Stephens Sedan Cruiser

Los Angeles, California 1998

I ran across these while unpacking the other day. We lived, as sneak aboards, in Marina Del Rey before moving to San Francisco in early 1999. She was a 34′ Stephens Sedan. Built in 1949 of port orford cedar on oak frames with mahogany decks and cabin. Accommodations were luxurious compared to the TimeMachine.

When we first saw it from the dock, Cheyenne said “Oooooooh, we’d have to name it ‘The Betty.'” Talking with owner later we learned she was already named Betty Page and that pretty much sealed the deal.
