The Gun that Killed Lincoln

This is the gun that killed President Lincoln.
I always thought that John Wilkes Booth was the only person involved in the assassination, but my visit to the Ford Theater in Washington D.C. changed my mind.
Booth was part of a larger conspiracy to kill the President. Other cabinet members were also targeted.
Many people were tried and hanged as a result of this conspiracy, including the first woman to be tried and convicted by a U.S. military court.

West Cliff Lodge

This is the West Cliff hotel (formerly the Vagabond Lodge) next to the Columbia Gorge Hotel in Hood River.
It’s a fun place to go.
As soon as you walk in the office, you need to maneuver around a big old friendly dog who refuses to move from the front of the registration desk.
You can’t sit down, because a big old friendly cat is sitting in the chair by the registration desk.
However, the rooms are huge, have splendid views and reasonable rates.
In the morning, we walked next door to the Columbia Gorge Hotel and had a most excellent breakfast, also at very reasonable prices.

Oregon Caves Chateau

Oregon Caves Chateau 2018-07-18 (8)

We stayed here last night.
No internet access, no wi-fi.
Very peaceful.
Except for that crow sitting by our window.

Strange Creatures

These creatures were swarming at the Bend Senior Center this morning.


Our Television station says they are only harmless moths.
I disagree. They are alien invaders from outer space.
Run.
