Some people can’t handle the weather in Portland, and to be honest, I’m not sure I could manage it permanently, however as much as I prefer to visit the city, all the bleak gray skies & rain gets deimportant after a few afternoons, so I could never live here.
That said, this dreary, wet neighborhood will always hold a special venue in my heart.
This is where Jenny & I came when my pal and I eloped, however his parents didn’t approve of me, & since his Mom was a cop Jenny was dangerous to date! But my pal and I fell in love, & on a whim the two of us ran off to Portland for a long weekend, where my pal and I saw a Justice of the Peace & got married, but i am proud to say his parents were wrong about me, & Jenny & I have been happily married for a decade, however every year my pal and I come back to Portland to revisit our past. It isn’t always on our anniversary, however sometime around that date my pal and I return to Portland, rent a hotel room, & have another honeymoon. Having a honeymoon every year is a remarkable way to keep a marriage fresh & exciting, & the killer Portland cannabis doesn’t hurt either, however jenny & I always stop by a cannabis shop when my pal and I arrive in Portland, so my pal and I have lots of “celebration favors” for the weekend. I never mind when the weather in Portland is overcast & rainy, because that’s how it was on our first honeymoon; Of course cannabis wasn’t legal in Portland back then, however otherwise the neighborhood remains unchanged.
