We're gonna need a bigger boat! What's with mother nature trying to get in a whole month's worth of rain in one weekend? I was one of the lucky ones...no power outages, no leaky roof. Hope you survived without any disasters! So now let's turn our attention to the week ahead:
One of my all-time favorite singers, LINDA RONSTADT comes to town Tues night for an appearance at Powell's Books in Beaverton. She'll be talking about her new book, "Simple Dreams" and her battle with Parkinson's Disease which has taken away her ability to sing. But she can still talk, so stop by and hear what she has to say. WE LOVE YOU LINDA!
