My friend, Barbara

This is my friend, Barbara.  This picture is from OFFF 2008, but we'd been friends for a couple of years by the time this was taken.

Barbara loves to come to Oregon because it's cool and green.  That's because Barbara lives in Phoenix, but she calls it "HELL". 

Because she lives in HELL (where it's really, really hot), she has palm trees in her yard.  She always has to tell her landscapers not to trim the palm trees, because she thinks trimming them makes them look like large penises (penii?) in her yard.

It's  a good thing Barbara doesn't live in Oregon and have the same landscaper as the people who live in this house.


  1. OMG - this made me laugh - that landscaper would be so fired!

    I'm looking forward to seeing you at BSG this year.

    I'll never forget meeting you at the Yarn Harlot's book signing at Powells where the PDX knit bloggers were born.

  2. Oh, my.
    If that was my yard, I'd be out there with hedge clippers and a ladder. Or a pair of scissors and a kitchen chair to stand on. Or a steak knife and a milk crate. Whatever it took...
