Thought I would post a picture of my grandmother's house in Portland, Oregon mostly for my old grade school friends.  Many will remember us visiting her for sleepovers. Even though she was in her low 80's, she would walk us down to Oaks Park for a day at that amusement park.  The reason I said 'walk down' was because once we walked about 6 blocks, then across Sellwood Park grounds to the edge of a cliff that dropped down to the Willamette River and Oaks Amusement Park.  She really was a trooper and definitely quite the pioneer yet a wonderful 'modern' Grandma.
Dad and I sold that house in late 1970 after Grandma passed away and since then new owners have added the new front porch with a seat, railing and the fence.  The color now is yellow but it was always white when Grandma owned it.  What a wonderful bit of news when I saw this........the old Sellwood neighborhood is being well maintained... YIPPEE!
