- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
My thanks, sunvalleysally - it's good to know the truth from an insider and I'm sorry to see the dark/darker side of Oregon. I loved your statement about treading on anyone's cultural sensitivities. I've long ago given up jousting at windmills for my right as a woman to simply exist in a very unfair world. Yet, while my pay was a joke, I still have to look over my shoulder wherever I go - I mustn't offend any one else's rights. Your comments pretty much touched on any question I may have had so I do appreciate you're taking the time to educate me on the myth that is Oregon.
Thank You saramiller, as well for your insightful comments. If I can get this one redneck wannabe to get rid of his truck, I'll regain my tiny peaceful neighborhood again after twelve years. If any of you have ever been to S. Louisiana - you know how terribly brutal the heat and humidity can be. However, in light of what I've read, I have to say that the area below Interstate 10 - the actual Cajun country has the friendliest humans I've ever known. So, I'll see what I can do to rid myself and my neighbors of the exhaust, save my money, travel and appreciate the good care for both myself and my grumpy cat. I sound like a cliche'. Ahh what to do but laugh at ourselves. Thank you both and if you ever go to Mardi Gras - DON'T go to New Orleans. The country is where it's real. Mamou, Breaux Bridge, etc. Take care and all have a great life.
