........Oh, and the money you will save you can put toward a nice set of tools to do it right......

I wouldn't be surprised if it costs MORE to build your own cabinets

These days, hippy is more of a fashion statement than a lifestyle.

Love that Zappa video

Cool on the Roadshow Denny!

Ya know, there's a guy in Eugene that puts american V8's/ drivetrains in those old VW buses as a business.  I always smile when a bus gos screamin' by me, uphill, on I-5.

It just so happens that '94 Chevy pickups have a great reputation for lasting a long time w/ minimal problems.  I just happen to own one and have found 0ut there's a minor cult around them.  I've always had Ford trucks, but only bought the Chevy cause it was such a good deal.  I found out about the cult after I bought it.  The HVAC controls, and factory stereo, can go whack on ya.  My stereo would just turn itself up sometimes (like all the way).  Easily fixed w/ an ass kickin aftermarket stereo.  As for gas mileage, we just bought a Prius and kept the truck.  Get that truck Weeze.

Looking back at the original pic, with the horses in the background.  It has a Brokeback Mountain kinda feel (not that there's anything wrong with that)

WTH Weeze?  It looks like a skirt.

I'm no hater- I got married in, and occasionally wear, a Utilikilt.  Hmmmmm?

edit to say: I went back and looked at the pick.  It looks like a schoolgirl skirt.  I think it should either have a classic pattern or more pleating like a Utilikilt.

Just so happens mine is the Eugene Saturday Market, too!  Although I admit that after so many years I've kinda burned out on it and usually don't go unless I want something specific from it.  OTOH, I'm at the Farmer's Market across the street nearly every Saturday getting food and ideas.

I may have to buy the kids another joke book from Frog (it will depend on when he had his last bath)

I believe it was 1987.

You nailed it on Frog's last bath.  You gotta give him credit though, he's always out there selling his cheesey joke books and spewing his dialogue.  I'm happy to give him a few bucks and be entertained at the same time.  My kids just stare, but also laugh at his jokes.

I consider the whole thing (Sat market and farmers market) one big affair- they're all right there.  We moved out of Eugene about 7 years ago, but visit the market several times a year.  While I see a lot of disfunction in Eugene, the Saturday Market is fantastic and really hits at the spirit of the community.  It seems like multigenerational drug use has really brought the community down.  Sadly, I really see it at the Oregon Country Fair.

Why did the hippy move to Eugene?

Because he heard there were no jobs.........................rimshot

in another lifetime, long years ago, I lived in Eugene (and also on the coast in Waldport) and used to do both the Eugene & Portland Saturday Markets. this was back in the 70s-80's when I was a young hippie craftsman (first leatherwork, then pottery). great times, good memories. sad to hear that the Portland market has become a junk sale, but great to hear the Eugene market has continued to stay true to handcrafted only. here in Gainesville, FL we have a couple of good farmers markets but nothing like the Saturday Market in Eugene.

I love Waldport!  We are looking at properties there now.
