27° here in the Willamette Valley, at 8:00, with a high of 48°. The other day I had a lot on my mind so I went for a walk. It ended up being 3 hrs and a lot of thinking. We have a little country store, restaurant, and Grange hall a few miles up the road. Once there I decided to walk the abandon rail road line. The Grange sign says est. 1900. The store is known for its penny candy. When my daughters were little they finally went to a nickel. There is a rural fire station and a half dozen houses.
