NAIA wrestling tournament at SOU

Caryn Westrick

With two matches going at the same time, instead of a buzzer when time expired, one of the SOU volleyball players would tap the referee on the back when the clock ticked down to zero.

Between the wrestling singlet and the numerous crotch grabs, many of my photos aren’t very presentable. This last picture isn’t quite so obscene, but it is a strange one.

No more monkey tree :(

As I mentioned a couple weeks back, there was a good chance Ashland’s monkey tree would be no more once the people moved out. They moved at the end of January, and the monkeys are now gone. Oh well, I still have a few photos from what was.

Monkey Tree on B Street

We have a few Monkey Puzzle Trees in Ashland. We also have one, plain-ol’ Monkey Tree, pictured above.

I’ve been watching the number of monkeys in this tree grow over the past year, but I’ve never had my camera with me. Since the number of stuffed monkeys continued to increase, I figured this wasn’t a temporary situation, and I was going to wait until the leaves came on the tree this spring for photos. However, in the local paper a few days ago this story was published so I figured I had to grab some pics now or I may never have the chance.

This tree reminds me of the pacifier tree near Copenhagen, Denmark in Frederiksberg Have. Are there any trees bearing unusual fruit where you live?

Breakfast decisions

voodoo doughnut

I have been in Eugene, Oregon the past couple days for the Thanksgiving holiday. Voodoo Doughnut, of Portland, Oregon, now has a shop in Eugene too. We headed there for breakfast the day after Thanksgiving only to find them closed until noon. So we came back after lunch for dessert.

Ski Fence

I drove to Ellie’s middle school volleyball game this past week in Talent, Oregon (just north of Ashland). I drove by a house with a front yard fence made out of about 20 – 30 skis. When I turned the corner I realized they had used a lot more than just a couple dozen skis; the fence made entirely of skis went all the way around their property.
