Above photo is of me in 1955 and the lower image is of my grandson, Adam. Same river, 61 years apart.
This chicken was one of four urban chickens that lived down the street from our daughter’s house in the Sabin neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. On our walks home from the school our granddaughter attended we would sometimes stop by to feed the chickens-which was usually crackers like those small fish shaped crackers ( the name escapes me). There were quite a few urban chicken coops in NE Portland. One house, some sort of a commune, even had goats and sheep.
My grandson, Elliott and myself, having a bit of fun at Coney Island in August of 2019. The parrot is real.

Keystone Korner, in San Francisco, was a jazz and blues club in the late 60’s till1983. It apparently moved to Baltimore in the 80’s, which seems weird. I was only 18 at the time this photo was taken so would not have been allowed in to listen. There is some disinformation online that the club didn’t open till 1972. I didn’t time travel to the future 2 years when I took this photo, so I’m convinced it opened in the 60’s. On the bill when I took this photo ( on a very cheap camera and scanned in to an iMac) is Boz Scaggs and Benny Cecil and the Snakes (couldn’t find anything online about Benny on multiple search engines).
This was taken a few years ago when I was regularly visiting Portland, OR.
Just a quick note on the ads you are seeing. I’ve avoided allowing ads for ten years. WordPress nudged me a couple of weeks ago so I thought I would give it a try. If it turns out to be a bust or more of an annoyance than it is worth, I’ll figure out a way to turn off the ads. My guess is that only sites that generate a lot of traffic see any sort of monetary reward. My site, although having quite a few Followers, has very little traffic.
