First Day of Summer, North Bend

I've mentioned that we had an unseasonably warm and sunny winter, but spring has been the opposite, with cold and rain the norm. This trend continues into summer - here are some pictures from my walk today in town:
As you can see, no summer weather today, with the fog and clouds hanging low on the flanks of Mt. Si:



Just up the street, the local movie theater is showing free movies during the summer and is in the World Cup spirit:



These local residents immediately got out of their plastic igloo as I walked by:



One of the local landmarks, North Bend Community Church, was built in 1897 and still has services for the faithful:



While originally residential, parts of North Bend have now converted to a commercial/residential mix, such as this building (being occupied by a professional services company, possibly a design firm):

And right across the street, you might be able to tell that this is the main office of a high-end home builder:
The main street of downtown North Bend has been undergoing a revitalization - Boxley's is a fantastic restaurant that offers nightly jazz, and is a great supporter of the community. My daughter's Jazz Choir has sung here a couple of times:
I think the goats are OK with this first day of summer:

You have a very interesting and nice looking community. We too have had a lot of spring rains, buy now it seems that it may just get very hot for awhile, something I am not in love with.
Belated congrats on that new addition to the stable. Are you trying to start a dealership?

Thanks Jim - my wife thinks I am starting a museum!

Dear Lance:

North Bend looks like my kind of town... Small enough so that no one cares if you raise chickens, and large enough to have a movie theater (built in 1954) and professional firms moving into reconverted houses.

You live in a nice place. I notice you weren't riding. Wiping all the water spots off tha chrome is a real challenge, I bet. My bike has no chrome... And it still takes 5 hours to get clean.

Fondest regards,
Jack • reep • Toad

North Bend looks nice, Lance. I feel you pain about the slow start to summer-like weather. It's been too wet these last couple of months. But the sun is coming!

Lance said...

Thanks Jack - North Bend is a nice place; small enough to know some of the folks, but large enough so that not everyone knows you.

Mike - thanks, and I can't wait until this weather turns more summer-like!

Как говорилось на [url=http://www.soki.tv]Soki.TV[/url] Посетила нас такая беда. Брата мужа проститутка обвиняет в изнасиловании. Брат уже сидит с изоляторе. Наняли неплохого адвоката, но не можем взять в толк хорошо он работает или же нет=(
По идее, как я понимаю, его не обязаны были сажать незамедлительно в изолятор, обязаны были отпустить под подписку..( тк помимо ПУТАНЫХ обвинений с ее стороны более ничего нет!) адвокат этого не добился.
И самое очень важное - нам никому не дают свиданий с ним, не позволяют никаких передач! Адвокат говорит, что может быть такое, что суд будет закрытым и БЕЗ ПОТЕРПЕВШЕЙ! Как такое может быть??? "Потерпевшая" не отрицает что она проститутка и в милицейской базе также числится! Но адвокат говорит, что в суде это не будет произноситься, что не будет суда присяжных! ( тк это не предусмотрено статьей, типа отменили??)
Простите за сумбур, я просто уже ничего не понимаю..выходит, что наш адвокат коему платим неплохие деньги ТАМ НИКТО И НИЧТО=((( Что делать?
ЗЫ Брат эту проститутку не насиловал! Спал с ней да - но насилия не было.
