9 1/2 year old parking ticket - options?

2020.12.01 22:29 Solvrevka 9 1/2 year old parking ticket - options?

So I just received a note from a Texas attorney firm informing me that have an unpaid Portland parking ticket from May 2011, and that they will be happy to accept my online payment. Alternately I can sent a check or a money order to the State of Oregon Circuit Courts. The date of the infraction is almost exactly nine and a half years ago, to the day.
Being that this was nearly 10 years ago, I do not have any recollection of getting a ticket in Portland. When I have received Oregon parking tickets in the past, I got notices about it within weeks, not nine and a half years. I also paid Oregon directly - not some dodgy third-party agency.
I've emailed the court about this to verify the case number. Is there a statute of limitations on parking tickets? What are my options here?

2020.11.29 21:00 outerspace-sunflower High fiber diet for cat diarrhea?

My cat has chronic diarrhea that vets have not been able to diagnose, but my guess is it is related to the clostridium he had that was treated right before I adopted him. He does not respond to specialty foods, but responded somewhat to pumpkin. Currently he eats 1/3 cup dry food 2x daily with a tablespoon of wet food daily. He was refusing to eat the pumpkin (cats, am I right?).
Question: Since he responds well to fiber, can I add a fiber supplement to his diet, and how much? I've tried adding metamucil powder from the capsules but I stopped because i couldn't tell if it was helping and I was nervous not knowing how much was safe to add and whether it is even the right kind of fiber.
My vet said it was safe ("it's usually used for constipation not diarrhea but if it helps go for it") but with how hectic life is rn never sent me more detailed info I asked for which is why I'm asking here.
Question 2: Is it realistic for this to ever go away or improve? I've tried a lot and want to keep expectations realistic. What would pain management look like for diarrhea?
Question 3: Are there any ingredients that could make this worse that I should avoid in treats/dry foods? I notice too many treats does make it worse.
Species: cat Age: 7ish Sex: Neutered male Breed: Domestic shorthair Body weight: 12ish pound
Short history: Adopted cat 4 years ago, chronic diarrhea, giardia + clostridium + upper respiratory infection at time of adoption but was treated, up to date on vaccinations. Heart murmur 3. No infections or parasites since adoption, except a few more upper respiratory infections.
Relevant clinical signs: chronic diarrhea that worsens every few weeks for a few days (normally he just has loose stools, during flareups he often misses the litter box and it's watery/mucusy and it sounds painful). Currently in a flareup, accompanied by vomiting, which is unusual.
Length of time you have seen these changes: since adoption, flareups keep getting worse
All test results for parasites, infections, etc are negative. I have not sprung for any more expensive tests.
Your general location: portland, oregon area

2020.11.24 12:45 General1Holder Oregon Intervention

Subject: Oregon Intervention
From: Ty S - Oregonian
Date: 24 Nov 2020
To: the new Biden Administration Attention - the honorable Cedric Richmond Senior Advisor to the President
Greetings elected officials, diplomats, and honorable people,
Last time I wrote my elected officials it was under a circumstance of distress. I'm pleased to say that my experience with that situation was resolved with the help and assistance of some good people in public service. I dont write these letters often because Im often not feeling up to putting the kind of energy it requires to express the situation in terms that are solution oriented. But I seek solution oriented strategies often to remedy strife and stress that people in my community live with. It appears to be a time once again to update on the latest issue that we need serious intervention.
My name is Ty S I live in Portland Oregon with my wife and son. The experiences as a high school student was quintessential to a Black man growing up in Oregon but my story is unorthodox. My trajectory in education was similar to phil knight of nike as I share two of the four schools he attended: Cleveland High and U of O. So Im as Oregon as the swoosh, Powells, and the Rudolph sign. Politics is my life mostly having been involved in the Oregon students of color coalition and OSA in 2004 and Urban League in 2009 before going on to serve in the Oregon Health Authorities Transformation Center and the Oregon Advocacy Commissions. I'm particularly proud of my community organizing in the between 2004-2016 which includes electing Obama, helping Black Activist run for office, and building a grassroots community health worker project called We Are Health Movement. Once Trump came to power things changed dramatically for the worse in Oregon. Nearly all of my activism ended as a powerful racist insurgency became more visibly violent and threatening to the Black community.
Events of Portland Oregon 2020 require intense analysis. Im not a total alarmist about our situation like our media has gaslit and painted Oregon as a place on fire with leftist anarchists extremists. Please recognize that intervention can only be settled diplomatically at this point. We have lived and walked and witnessed a very violent escalation since 2016. Look at the evidence of tracking hate crimes in our state https://www.splcenter.org/hate-map?year=2016&state=OR . We should not be on this list. We have such a small populations of minorities including Black, Hispanic, Asian and Native populations and the many immigrant cultures are very small in overall numbers. The story behind these hate crimes is a way more then just isolated incidents there is a large scale and spreading networks of organizations that only purpose is to antagonize, disrupts, hate, punish and resort to violent intimidation and terrorism.
Hate groups in Oregon have dramatically grown in the last four years and as a political, social, and defensive response people have responded in a counter activity to keep those movements from growing further and pledge to end their reign of terror. It started in mid 2016 when Jeremy Christian a pre-radicalized activist with the Proud Boys murdered in 2 people on the Max Transit system (which is like our rail car). Jeremy Christian is part a new movement of internet organizers that have particularly recruited young white men to organizations like the oath keepers, 3 percenters, and inspired by the Bundy occupation movement of 2016. They are living in the shadows of Waco movement. Out west they love that shit and 2016 opened the door for growth of these right wing extremism. Oregon responded initially in Portland by counter protesting against the groups that would gather in various parts of the city including on the Federal freeway 213, Downtowns Terry Shrunk Plaza, and Tom Macall Park.
Each of the events in the summer of 2016 organized by violent right wing extremists involved heavy confrontation from counter protesters. This included verbal, physical, and organized violence. This was warfare in a small scale. But many things escalated. This history must include a contextualization of the types of organizations that began to sprout and grow on the opposition which I will categorize as the organized left until I describe it more fully. In Portland initially the ecumenical faith community, the non-profit activists, labor, and a variety of socialist organizations. Some of this coalition of organizations had previously collaborated against neoNazis in the 80s as resistance to hate before. The events of Jeremy Christian galvanized a large scale opposition that sought to resist racialized terrorism of that kind in our community. As events and confrontations continued to persist summer after summer after summer we are now where we are today. As the events continued the city of Portland often utilized the Portland Police Bureau as a referee of sorts to prevent wide scale violence. But there were many instances where people of Portland felt that Portland Police were more favorably protecting the right wing groups more and more the activists involved from the left lost favor with the city government, Police leadership and elected such as Ted Wheeler. The impasse really escalated between the city representatives and diplomats in political actions, contract negotiations for the police union contracted are included as a source of the strain and political tensions escalating.
The summer of 2020 was by far the most chaotic situation because the global movement for justice for George Floyd and Briana Taylor tied with Oregons #BLM picked up a new confrontation with the Police and state officers in downtown Portland. Oregon activists like many other states have been fighting for justice for many unarmed black men and women and those with mental illness shot and killed by the Portland, Vancouver, and Gresham police. Local movements converged it was a mashing of black activism in a new generation of young and emerging people for Black Lives with the Oregon defenders and anti fascists who had basically been in battle with right wing extremists continuously for 4 years. The combination produced energy seen no where else in the country. The City saw had over 130 days of continuous protest in a call for anti racism, justice for police murders, and anti capitalism oppression. Now I do not need to detail all of these events and how they were organized and what happened between the night to night. I do know that a lot has happened and most documenting and historicizing these events can tell that story. My purpose today is explain that there is a diplomatic intervention needed. We are desperate in this city for a focus of attention that doesn't involve us looking down the dark hole of a barrel.
There needs to be a peace tribunal set up in our city (similar to south africa). The need is so great out here. No convening, No conversations, Nothing seems to be working. Please help us out here and we don't need photo ops, only real commitment and work can solve anything we got out here. The pain is deep and the grievances are so numerous that our community might not heal for a generation.
We need peace in this city. We need peace. Peace between police and protesters and between the right wingers. There are some clear changes needed. Here are my suggestions that will give people a part of power.
Total and complete overhaul of the law enforcement in this country in the first step we must examine. The Portland Police contract needs a total revamp. All of there leadership needs to be changed. There is a certain segment of Portland that wont setter for less. The many proposals by thousands of activist in portland none of which has happened in the more then 4 years of advocacy: https://www.portlandmercury.com/blogtown/2020/06/09/28519183/all-of-the-... We need to accelerate these changes locally and nation wide. We are not an outlier here it is part and parcel of similar movements that started in Furgeson.
Even if you or your office got involved and moved the needle on any of these issues Portland still will need to grapple with its right wing violent extremism problem, because it is growing out of control with reports of continuous recruitment in the suburbarbs and nationwide show this. Oregon is the theater of a national program targeting this state as battle ground for the clash of extreme ideologies. What should we do about that? Well my feel is that its not important to most law enforcement or it really feels like it. The law cant really keep up with the type of warfare that is just as much virtual as it is physically in the streets. It will have to be part of a robust strategic initiative on a large scale organized nationally coordinated and well resourced. No longer can cities afford to build volunteer resistances to hate groups. There needs to be a common societal agreement on this in a new contract of acceptance of what is right and wrong in our communities. It is appropriate but it will also need alternative opportunities to get people out of those groups.
Violence is not ended here and we expect next year will be worse then this one and we live in fear for our lives. Black people in particular fear that violence is eminent in any outing, they must use precautions to protect themselves in this kind of violent political and social environment because your skin tone and or your social status is often the determinant factor. Hate crimes need national attention to end. We need a nation wide movement to end racism. Many of the right wing extremists are entrenched in their ideology and need an counter narrative that is stronger to inject alternative perspectives. But it might be too late for that here in Oregon we are at the point where violence and counter violence are yearly occurrences and it becomes a matter of desperation to even reach out to the federal government for help and support.
Oregon is my home that I spent most this year has required a high level of alertness and protection of my home and family. This is the first year we have seriously discussed leaving the United States because really feel unsafe for us to live here and thrive.
I hope this country can do something about our situation with both Policing and Hate before we dissolve into non stop tribal warfare and violence. This call to action and support will go to the high courts of international conflict.
Please help me forward this letter to leaders of every civil society.

2020.11.23 21:00 portlane Patricia Henick (March 1932 - Nov. 16, 2020)

Patricia Ann Henick
March 1932 - Nov. 16, 2020
Patricia Henick, wife and mother extraordinaire, passed peacefully at the age of 88 with her sister Penelope by her side.
Patricia was a talented and quiet achiever with a gentle forgiving nature, a great sense of humor, and an enduring beautiful smile.
Born in Milwaukee, Wis., her family settled in the Portland, Ore., area when she was a young girl. While attending St. Mary's High School in Portland, she met her future husband John Henick and they married in 1950.
Pat and John's family quickly grew with the birth of six children from 1951-1959. As a busy young mother, Patricia managed to find time to perfect her talents and hobbies in needlecraft, knitting and crocheting, while also earning extra income teaching private knitting lessons and modeling for various commercial products.
As her children approached adulthood, John suggested she get a "real" job. Patricia rejected the social norm of employment as a secretary/office worker and decided to combine her artistic talents and needlecraft hobbies into a business operation. She opened the first Yarn Tree retail store in Aloha, Ore., in 1972. Her entrepreneurship led to the opening of three other retail stores located in major shopping malls in the Portland Metro area.
Patricia's business success motivated her husband's early retirement from public school administration, and then he became her "right-hand man." John's career as Patricia's business partner involved managing the logistics and accounting for all the Yarn Tree stores.
Looking towards retirement, Patricia reduced her enterprise down to one retail store in the Beaverton Mall, which she eventually sold in early 1990's.
Patricia and John bought a retirement home in the (then) newly built Claremont neighborhood in Bethany. They were active in the Claremont community, in their church, St. Pius X, and volunteered with the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Pat and John enjoyed many retirement years together until John's passing in 2012. Patricia eventually relocated to the Ackerly at Timberland in Portland where she lived independently until the summer of 2020.
Complications from Alzheimer's forced her relocation to the Heritage House Adult Care Home in Portland in July of 2020. A recent fall resulting in a fractured wrist and shoulder accelerated her into hospice level care. Her family would like to acknowledge the excellent compassionate care she received at Heritage House - thank you all for gently guiding her "across the river."
We are all really going to miss Patricia, she was one in a million.
Patricia was preceded in death by her husband, John; her bothers, Joseph and Brian; her sister, Mary; her daughter, Christine; and her son, Daniel.
Patricia is survived by her sister, Penelope Monroe (husband Jim Monroe); son, James Henick (former wife, Janet Henick); son, Marty Henick (wife, Kim Farthing); daughter, Lisa Raskin (husband, Keith Raskin); daughter, Jan Henick-Kling (husband, Thomas Henick-Kling); 10 grandchildren; and one great-grandson.
Patricia also requested a private funeral with immediate family members only. A future memorial is planned in the Portland area, the time and date to be determined when Covid-19 pandemic restrictions are lifted.
Patricia requested any memorial donations be made to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Portland Council, 8101 S.E. Cornwell St., Portland, OR 97206, or at their website -www.svdppdx.org

2020.11.23 02:47 aita-friendis2picky AITA for suggesting my friend date girls if she isn't attracted to guys?

I don't know why everyone is pissed at me for this.
My buddy Leah's been single for about three years now and is trying out Hinge. I noticed that she tends to pass on the more "masculine" looking guys. Like, she'll message the more skinny, feminine looking dudes and skip over the bigger guys or dudes with beards or body hair. Not to judge her, but guys are going to look like guys and she's going to be single for a long ass time if she keeps swiping on guys just because she doesn't want to date a lumberjack.
Well, I set her up with my friend Alex recently. They have a lot of things in common, even if he looks like a biker with a shaved head and beard combo. Only their date didn't go so well. Alex admitted he wasn't attracted to Leah, but Leah blew up on me and told me to never pull that kind of stunt on her again.
Me, getting pissed on Alex's behalf because he's my best friend and she blew him off on their date, told her, "well if you're so hung up on femme guys, why don't you start dating women instead?"
I honestly don't know what I did wrong because now Leah, Alex, and a bunch of our other friends are pissed at me. Some of them say that who Leah is attracted to is no one's business but her own and others because they think I'm trying to force her to be a lesbian. Meanwhile, I think Leah needs to get over her hangup over big guys with beards because we live in fucking Portland, Oregon and it's lumberjack/hipstebear type central up here.
Is that really an asshole move?
Edit: Okay, fine. I'm an asshole. I'll go apologize to Leah if she'll have me. Not my fault if she's going to be forever alone.

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Just wants it to run games, most of them are old so not too graphic intensive. specifically he wants to replay the s.t.a.l.k.e.r. games from the 2000's
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
around 300$
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
as soon as possible tbh, he can build it, just needs help finding parts

2020.11.20 01:05 Snoo_44245 Going on R&R from Iraq and back.

Balad to Oregon and back, circa December 2003.
My second bout with being Aircraft Commander (first was taking our ADVON to Kuwait) occurred when coming home on leave/R&R). We were authorized 14 days leave from the time we hit the US and that’s exactly what we got.
Getting to the US started at Balad Airbase (LSA Anaconda). A full C130 of Soldiers departed with a somewhat thrilling combat takeoff (spiraling up and away, just in case bad guys with guns were hanging around). We flew to Kuwait to spend the night before catching a charter flight to Boston. During the remainder of the day, they had travel personnel help each of us arrange round trip tickets from Boston, to home and back to.Boston. I noted that we would be arriving on 10 December and reporting back in Boston on December 24th. I was hoping that this report date was not true, that no one would do that to us.
Again, I was appointed Flight Commander and again, I expected (and got) no problem from our homeward bound kids. We got to Boston very early in the morning and were heartily greeted by the VFW and others (very nicely done). As we came into the terminal several of the VFW guys asked for our tickets and went behind the counter with the reservation folks. They were trying to get us out on earlier flights than were had been scheduled for (very nice again).
I was informed that my new flight departed in 15 minutes and was given a gate number, far, far away. Several of us were on that flight and we sprinted as far as TSA where things slowed down. Well, thanks to the inventor of speed laces we made it just in time. This flight was to LA and being a red eye was totally uneventful. We slept. My next flight to Portland was a mid-morning flight. By this time I realized that we did not smell very good. While our uniforms were clean by our standards, we (at least I) came from a base where we burned the human waste we produced. With the poop of 16,000 people making a brown cloud the swirled around the base impregnating everything with a certain smell. I was very pleased that none of my fellow travelers mentioned this.
We took off and got to altitude and the drink cart started coming down the aisle. When the stewardess asked me what I would like. I responded that "I have been dying for a glass of red wine for nine months". She said just a moment and went forward towards first class. She returned with a real wine glass and told me that this was what they were drinking in first class. Wow, thank your personnel for me United.
Later in the flight, the same stewardess came back to me and presented me with an unopened bottle of red wine, saying "this is for you and your wife tonight". Again, thanks United.
Upon arrival, I met up with my wife just outside TSA (nice). We drove home and had a wonderful two weeks. During that time, I hoped against hope that the Army would somehow change that report date. It was not to be.
At the end of my leave, my wife drove me back to Portland International and parked in short term parking. My wife's intent was to go with me and wave me off at TSA. On getting out of the car, I realized that my emotions were running high (going back to Iraq). With tears in my eyes, I told her I wanted to go in alone as I would make a scene if I had to say goodbye in public. We parted in the parking lot.
I don’t remember the flight to Denver at all. I do recall that when I got there, I went to a lounge near my next flights gate and ordered a beer. The bartender would not let me pay and as I finished my beer, another patron bought me a second. Thanks to you good people. I decided to avoid more free beer and left for my gate. There was only one other person there in uniform, a sad looking Private. I sat next to him and chatted him up. Yes, he was going back to Iraq on my charter flight. As they began the process of boarding, the guy behind the counter told us to, stay where we were. When we finally were told to board, he had moved us to first class.
Being a late afternoon flight, we were served dinner right away, followed by requests for drinks. The Private next to me was looking a little dejected at this point, so I leaned over and said "You know that rule about drinking in uniform?" He nodded. "Son, we're going to Iraq." He smiled and we both ordered a drink.
Landing in Boston, I found that the VFW and several other organizations had coordinated to cordon off an entire section of a concourse for my Soldiers (yep, as Aircraft Commander they were mine again). They provided us with a complete Christmas Eve dinner. They also had several tables off to the side covered in cell phones. They invited us feel free to call our loved ones and wish them a Merry Christmas. This almost made up for having to be there on Christmas Eve. Almost!
What really made me proud of these kids, was when we had our final headcount, every Soldier that flew in with me was there to fly back. No AWOLs, no sick, lame or lazy, no missed flights, they were all there.
The flight was uneventful, even forgettable (I don't remember). Upon arrival in Kuwait, I realized I was back in the Army when I heard the greeting "Merry Christmas, line up over there".

  • The WWF is the source of most of the news this week, and the first major thing is the Superstars taping on June 1. Dave was in Oakland and gives a full recap of the show. They had 12,120 in attendance (around 9,000 paid) and a gate around $110,000. Dave compliments the show’s atmosphere and WWF’s commitment to putting on a show, even if their style has some drawbacks. He does say that for an arena show, 29 matches is normally way too many, but since it was a tv taping, you know what you’re getting yourself into. Everyone who complains about modern tv tapings, be glad you weren’t going to these. They managed a good pace overall and kept the entire taping under 4 hours (last year’s taping in San Francisco was nearly 5 hours and had fans booing everyone in the last hour because they just wanted to see Hogan and get their money’s worth before leaving). Anyway, if you know 1980s Dave, you know his first major complaint is always going to be about unannounced changes to the advertised card. All during their tv hype for this, they were pushing Honkytonk vs. Beefcake with Jimmy Hart banned from the building. They forgot about that last bit and Jimmy was there. Then they talked about how the next show in town, Jimmy would be banned from the building. They also advertised free t-shirts to all fans in attendance, and they didn’t come through on that. Dave thinks it’s a real swing and a miss - 12,000 fans all wearing a Randy Savage t-shirt would have been a remarkable sight and been really effective. Anyway, Dave thinks most were pretty happy with the show as a whole.
  • I’m not going to go through everything on this taping, because Dave seriously covers all 29 matches, but here are some highlights and even that’s a lot. Dave gives a Brady Boone vs. Steve Lombardi dark match 3.25 stars. WWF is now doing all announcing from their studio in Connecticut, so no live announcing in the arena or even intros for each hour of the taping, which makes it hard to tell what’s going to be on what week’s show. That said, this did help things along in terms of speed. They had Slick do an interview introducing the Big Boss Man, and because they didn’t really work to change his look, he got some chants of “Bubba, Bubba” from those who recognized him. Dave takes the time to comment on Warrior’s utter lack of conditioning, as he was winded before he could even finish his entrance and could barely beat his chest. He says it’s a real statement to call anyone a worse worker than Andre the Giant right now, but Warrior has him beat by a mile. Bossman’s tv debut match was against Louie Spicoli. He squashed Spicoli in about a minute or so, then cuffed him to the ropes and beat him with his nightstick. The Hart Foundation has reunited as a face team and kicked Jimmy Hart to the curb. Rick Rude has a lot of heat thanks to the angle with Jake Roberts, and Dave can’t remember the last time a heel was so universally hated. At most he had a dozen women cheering for him, while everyone else was against him. Don Muraco “chased” Jimmy Hart to the back in an angle clearly setting him and Greg Valentine up for a feud and potentially writing Billy Graham off as a manager, but Jimmy ran so much faster that he beat him to the back by a mile and a guy behind Dave joked that Jimmy Hart is the best athlete on the show. The Rockers re-debuted for WWF and have made it two days with the company, doubling their previous record for WWF tenure. Dave thinks Michaels and Janetty are exactly what WWF needs: a babyface tag team with a rock and roll gimmick (WWF has never done that before, while other promotions have overdone it) and they got a good reaction. Dave makes an ill-advised comparison between Beefcake being over big in the area because he’s billed from San Francisco to “taking pride in living in the AIDS capital of the world.” I think we can expect letters about that in the coming weeks. Badnews Brown is doing a thing with the raising a black gloved hand in the air and Dave thinks it would have been really over if this were 1969, but it’s about 20 years too late to really strike that iron effectively and Dave jokes that you’d think Verne Gagne came up with that one until you realize he only just learned last year that baseball broke the color barrier. Dave compliments Rude again and says he’s such a good heel that Dave doesn’t even like watching him. By hour 3, fans were catching on with the Bossman’s gimmick and it was getting some good heat. The Hart Foundation’s first face match saw them beat a face jobber team and wrestle like heels while playing to the crowd like faces. The crowd was a bit confused, but Dave thinks faces who wrestle like heels could get over well once the crowd shakes off the classical conditioning. He especially compliments Bret’s fake knee injury as the best thing on the card and best sell of a fake knee injury he’s ever seen in WWF. Fans started leaving after the 26th match on the show and by the time the DiBiase vs. Savage (with Elizabeth) match happened, there were fewer than 7,000 left (and under 4,000 left by the finish). Dave quips that they probably left after seeing what Liz was wearing. Sure, Dave.
Watch: Big Boss Man makes his WWF tv debut
  • Electronic Media Magazine wrote a pretty frank kayfabe-breaking note in their May 23 issue, and they predict Ted DiBiase as the next WWF champ. They say:
While sports prognostication is normally a risky business, the scenario of who becomes the World Wrestling Federation’s champ is scripted out months in advance. It’s based on the popularity of the wrestler, not his record, according to the results each performer inspires in WWF’s multimillion dollar merchandising sales. Based on that criteria, insiders are laying odds that the next WWF champion will be “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. But look for Hulk Hogan to reclaim the crown in a matter of months.
  • Anyway, Dave gives his thoughts on this prediction. Dave figures Hogan’s a draw with or without the belt, so he’ll probably be paired with Bossman and Andre for the fall while Savage needs the belt right now to remain a draw. He’s reminded of New Japan 1983, where everyone assumed the boom from January to August was due to Inoki and without him things would stall out, and the same would be the case for WWF this summer without Hogan. New Japan didn’t stall and that eventually led to the split that created the original UWF. WWF doesn’t have to worry about anything like that happening, but it’s conceivable that WWF continuing fine without Hogan could reduce Hogan’s pull because the company would know they can weather through without him. So Dave thinks, given that and how far behind the NWA is, that keeping the belt on Savage for the time being (provided he still remains able to draw) is the smart move. Ultimately, when Savage loses the belt comes down to Hogan’s ego and whether Hogan feels he needs the belt and if he’ll demand it when he returns, if he’ll have patience, or if he’ll leave the company if he can’t just call his shots. If Savage does stop drawing, by all means transition to DiBiase then Hogan, but right now Savage is working as an attraction and it’s best to work in such a way where you can have two of those (Hogan and Savage) rather than only just one. It may even be better to have Savage as champion since Hogan only works weekends and tv, rather than the full schedule like Savage does.
  • WWF is also expanding their schedule again beginning on July 7. They’ll be running a fourth touring group to hit small towns they used to consider too small to be worth going to and do charity shows. Dave interprets this as WWF’s attempt to deliver a killing blow to the other promotions that are currently run pretty ragged. The charity shows, for instance, are most probably designed to be able to snipe charity deals from smaller promotions because WWF will be able to offer a more lucrative product in place of, say, a charity show run by Ron Fuller. It also opens roster spots up for WWF, which means plenty of room to hire disaffected NWA guys.
  • Finally, on to something not WWF: Chigusa Nagayo appears to be preparing to retire from All Japan Women. The promotion is planning a huge show in a baseball stadium to commemorate her retirement. Chigusa is easily the most popular and highest paid woman wrestler in the history of the business, and she’s only 23. The implications for All Japan Women are huge. They just had three other key retirements recently, including Devil Masami, Dump Matsumoto, and Yukari Omori. For big draws from their golden era of 1984-86, they only have Lioness Asuka left, and her popularity is significantly down from its 1985 peak. Surprisingly, it looks like AJW wants her gone just as much as she wants to be gone. Maybe she’s outgrown the company and become difficult to deal with, maybe the promotion doesn’t feel they need her enough that they need to submit to her demands. There’s also the fact that since she has had her peak popularity, the promotion is worried that keeping her as the main attraction will make the promotion look bad for being centered around a fading star (Dave gives examples like Dusty in the NWA, Inoki in New Japan, the original Sheik in Detroit, the Von Erichs in WCCW, Lawler in Memphis, etc.). Just as the Beauty Pair (Nancy Kumi and Jackie Sato) and Mimi Hagiwara gave way to the Crush Girls (Lioness Asuka and Chigusa Nagayo), so too must the Crush Girls give way to the next big stars, and AJW seems to want Yumiko Hotta and Mitsuko Nishiwaki to be the next major stars.
  • Chigusa leaving will be a big blow to AJW for a long while, but if they can get these new wrestlers over, they can build up again. The company and Chigusa both know that she can’t be on top forever and she has nowhere to go but down from being the top star of the women’s wrestling industry. Chigusa has numerous options available to her. She has a clothing company, can use her celebrity to do game shows, and could even gather wrestlers together and start her own promotion, as some of the speculation suggests. Dave spends a bit of time describing Japanese teen idol culture and concludes that it’s very fun to follow how it all works and how it intersects with wrestling. Anyway, this is all a bit premature and a false alarm (the part about Chigusa retiring - all the implications of what would happen upon her retirement is super interesting and important to consider). Chigusa will do a tour in the U.S. and Canada later this year and will return to AJW in the fall, before retiring for the first time in 1989 (she’ll unretire in 1993.
  • The June issue of Washington Monthly has a piece on commission regulation of pro wrestling. Mostly it kind of laughs at how wrestling is regulated currently. It’s written by the same guy who wrote the Penthouse piece on the Von Erichs that’s in development hell. That’s tentatively scheduled for the September issue now, by the way.
  • There were three shows in Oregon last weekend: Owen, Haynes, and McMahon. Haynes put on his championship tournament final and won that in front of a crowd, while Owen did a kids get in free gimmick and had Buddy Rose vs. the Assassin in a bullrope match to main event. WWF, however, drew their biggest crowd ever in Oregon on May 30, getting 7,500 people (Hogan never even cracked 5,000 in Portland).
  • Also, the advertised Hennig vs. DeBeers AWA title match in Salem Oregon on May 19 did not happen, as expected. Hennig was no longer champion and didn’t even show up, so they made a battle royal the main event. Matt Borne won. DeBeers claimed in an promo that “Verne Gagne has put economic sanctions on me.”
  • The IWGP Title is currently held up because of silliness involving Riki Choshu. The main event on May 27 was originally supposed to be Fujinami defending against Seiji Sakaguchi, but Riki Choshu complained and got inserted as challenger instead. The finish to the match, which to be clear was obviously a work due to the fact that Fujinami took his boot off, involved the ring breaking and Fujinami “spraining” his ankle. So Choshu attacks the ankle, Fujinami removes his boot and tries to fight on, but they stop the match and rule it a no contest. Choshu says that since it was an accident, he didn’t want to win the title that way, so the belt is held up until the June 24 show in Osaka.
  • Owen Hart also won the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight title on the same night. He’ll likely drop the title before the end of the tour, but he is scheduled for another tour in late August, which throws a wrench in Dave’s understanding of any plans he has vis a vis WWF.
  • Adrian Adonis is being cheered in New Japan. He was a big star here several years back and the fans still remember him. He’s definitely put on a lot of weight since those days, though, so the fans have also been pretty shocked by his physique.
  • Steve Williams is probably not going back to New Japan any time ever. He’s skipped out on too many tours and they weren’t happy about that.
  • UWF has announced their June 11 card. They’ve got Maeda vs. Takada in the main event and Kazuo Yamazaki vs. Norman Smiley. The show is already sold out (7,000 seats at a price of $28/ticket = $106,000). All Japan has a show in the same building a week earlier and tickets are selling slowly. UWF is trying to get Bob Backlund in against Maeda for their December show, but that’s conditional on getting Backlund to do the job. Good news from the future: Backlund will be on the show. We’ll get into the details and how plans change down the line.
  • Devil Masami came out of retirement for JWP’s May 28 show. JWP was going to fold on May 29, but they managed to draw 4,000 fans and are going to do occasional spot shows from here on out. Dave says those shows will be “promoted by the local mob” and that may or may not be snark, I’m honestly not sure.
  • No real news from All Japan Women beyond the Chigusa Nagayo situation. Retirement rumors are swirling, and Leilani Kai beat her in a non-title match on May 28, so it might be that they’re prepping Kai as her retirement match.
  • The lineup for the second NWA Clash of Champions has changed. Barry Windham will now be wrestling Brad Armstrong in what’s sure to be a fantastic match if it’s given time. TBS’s press release about the show gave Dusty the biggest bio (no surprise) which called him “one of the two biggest stars in professional wrestling today, along with Ric Flair.” Dave notes that Windham’s bio calls him the “frequent tag team partner of Lex Luger,” so obviously these are a touch dated. Clash shows are set for September 7 and December 7 as well.
  • [NWA] Jimmy Garvin did a great promo on the June 4 TBS show. He admitted he’s married to Precious and really heated up the rivalry with Kevin Sullivan. Dave thinks it’s no coincidence they’re doing this at the same time as Rick Rude is feuding with Jake Roberts over Jake’s wife. It’s a formula that gets over big.
  • NWA is putting a lot of hype into Luger vs. Flair at the Great American Bash, and it’s getting lots of buzz among fans. Most people Dave talks to think they might even put the title on Luger. Nothing’s certain yet, but they’re definitely doing good work in the build here.
  • [WWF] Islander Tama (Sam Fatu, aka Tonga Kid) has quit WWF. That leaves the islanders as Siva Afi and Haku, which really sucks because Tama and Haku worked really well together and Siva is… not great. Dave’s heard two stories here. One is that he was upset with his Wrestlemania paycheck and the other is that he was upset with how Sika was let go and the rest of the family put pressure on him to follow suit.
  • [WWF] At the Rochester, MN tapings on May 11, Vince apparently gave a speech about the evils of steroids. According to the speech, being on tv will make you larger than life and you won’t need steroids because you’re on tv. This all stems from an employee in some auditorium finding a needle and leftover steroids backstage after a WWF show and accidentally getting stuck by the needle and freaking out about potentially getting AIDS. Remember, kids, don’t share needles.
  • Terry Taylor is coming to the WWF to work as a babyface. I think he’s too chicken to try being a WWF heel.
  • There’s talk of WWF doing a feud between Cheryl Roberts and Raven. No, not Scott Levy. Cheryl is, of course, Jake Roberts’ wife. Raven is Rick Rude’s valet, played by his sister Nancy.
  • TV in Memphis to set up the June 6 Hennig vs. Lawler match was really hot. They had Hennig in studio making fun of a local car dealer and attacking him, then later demanding Lawler come out and when Lawler didn’t come out he destroyed the studio. Lawler only came out when Hennig threatened to beat the shit out of Lance Russell if Lawler didn’t come out by the count of 10. Of course, they kind of undercut some of the tension by having the Toyota dealer promise to refund the fans if Lawler doesn’t win on June 6.
  • WCCW’s Memorial Day card in Fort Worth drew roughly 1,500 (5,000 claimed on tv). That’s the biggest crowd they’ve had in a long time. Plans for Lawler to come work with Kerry Von Erich appear to be shelved - he’s coming in on June 17-19, but he’ll be working with Terry Taylor and Iceman King Parsons instead.
  • Makhan Singh is a heel and currently feuding with Kerry Brown in Stampede, but appears to be developing a cult following. He’s doing well on promos and he’s doing color commentary with Ed Whalen and a lot of folks feel like his work on the desk has significantly improved the show. So he’s developing a fanbase that quite likely will cheer for him. Can you believe that this guy winds up being Bastion Booger?
  • Dave gives a June 1 Continental match between Tom Prichard and Tony Anthony 4 stars. It was a 9 minute first blood match and Prichard bled first, but Danny Davis wiped the blood off him to keep the referee none the wiser.
  • In USA Wrestling, Doug Furnas almost won the Tennessee championship from Buddy Landel in a tv match, but Guerrero shenanigans kept the gold off him. Furnas won clean, but Hector Guerrero slipped a foreign object into Furnas’s trunks and told the ref, who reversed the decision promptly upon discovering the weapon. Guess we can see where Eddie got his ideas from.
Watch: Hector Guerrero lies, cheats, and steals
  • Over in Europe, Otto Wanz still reigns supreme. Scott Hall is over there right now working for him, and Wanz is defending his version of the world title against Bruiser Brody on July 9. Apparently he got Andre the Giant back in January and Andre did a job for him too. Well, it was December, and it was by countout, but yes.
Watch: Otto Wanz vs. Andre the Giant, December 1987
  • AWA is looking for a new booker. They fired Wahoo McDaniel and Ray Stevens for running their own independent show in Virginia without telling AWA about it. Just in case you thought Vince was the first promoter to not like his guys running their own shows.
  • Windy City Wrestling is holding a show on July 16 at DePaul University and they’re hoping to get Brody in to wrestle Nord the Barbarian in a cage match. Brody is already booked that weekend, though, so if he doesn’t come, it’s because he’ll be in Puerto Rico. He really should have picked Chicago that weekend.
  • There’s a really fascinating letter about the western Pennsylvania wrestling scene from the 1950s and into the 70s. They used to get tv from the International Amphithetre in Chicago featuring guys like Thesz, Gagne, Buddy Rogers, the Lisowskis, and others and the letter writer wonders if anyone still has the old film of those matches sitting on a shelf somewhere. They did, and there’s a youtube channel dedicated to all this old wrestling: The Chicago Film Archive. Anyway, by the late 50s, tv wrestling in Pittsburgh got taken over by a live studio show from Philadelphia every Saturday, but it wasn’t very good and then another promoter took over the tv there and you had guys like Waldo Von Erich, the Tolos Brothers, Ilio DePaolo, and others. Soon after, Toots Mondt (an associate of Vince McMahon Sr.) started romoting in the area and brought in the best of the NWA at the time - Argentina Rocca, Buddy Rogers, the Kangaroos, Haystacks Calhoun, Sweet Daddy Siki, and a young Bruno Sammartino. But the biggest star was the Crusher (Reggie Lisowski), who started heel and became even bigger when he turned face, and in his later years they tried turning him heel again to go against Bruno, but the feud died because his appeal was gone and turning him heel was a mistake (this is weirdly reminiscent of Steve Austin’s trajectory and the mistake of his heel turn, it feels like). When Bruno became the champ, that was shortly after WWWF broke off the NWA and the local shows started to die off as he went on tour, but the big shows still did well and there was still a surge of excitement and popularity. Big monthly shows in the local arena did well, but rarely sold out. Things went bad when Bruno dropped the title to Ivan Koloff and wrestling interest dropped significantly and it wasn’t until Bruno got the title back that things interest started rising again. It’s really remarkable how important a figure Bruno was in the western Pennsylvania scene at the time.
  • A writer asks Dave if he thinks Flair should consider jumping to WWF, and Dave responds. He says there’s a bigger chance of it happening now than at any previous point (not that he’s saying Flair will jump, just that the circumstances are most favorable to a jump right now), and that does make it an interesting question. If they wanted to, they could go all in on Flair and he’d be a big draw. But because Flair’s synonymous with the NWA, there’s a lot of ways they could sabotage that because of the egos at play and the need to show that they’ve been better than the NWA all along (see WWE and anything remotely WCW in the past 19 years). And some of the reasons they might convince themselves Flair wouldn’t get over with their audience are even valid: Flair thrives in long matches and WWF doesn’t really do those. He’s pushing 40, and that’s pretty old (ha!). So yeah, if Flair were to be the top of the card in WWF, that would feel to some like an admission that the NWA is on par with the WWF, and that won’t sit well with some of the suits with big egos. But at Flair’s age, a run with WWF to make the big bucks and work shorter matches is likely to have some appeal - he’s an old man in a young man’s game, and he’s got to know that. Well, let’s look at what Ric Flair had to say about the idea of being too old to do it and retirement, about 20 years later.
Watch: Ric Flair’s thoughts on being an old man in a young man’s game and retirement
  • Another letter asks Dave for some more information on his sources for the OWF debut and the World Class Texas Stadium show. Basically, some quibbles about attendance in the former, including asking for clarification on what Dave meant when he said the crowd had “a higher class of fan, similar to a WWF crowd.” In the case of the World Class stuff, the writer straight up disagrees on the quality of the latter and asks Dave to be more positive about WCCW for the sake of the business. Dave goes ahead and answers the challenge. He names the source for his claim on the “higher class of fan,” which he meant in terms of socioeconomic class: Mike Rodgers, who publishes the major newsletter on the region called Ring Around the Northwest. Rodgers has been following wrestling in the area enough to know what kinds of crowds different promotions draw in the area and Dave stands by Mike’s assessment. As for World Class, Dave had 21 letters from those who attended the show and all but four (and those four include this letter Dave is responding to) considered the show subpar, and Dave makes sure to clarify that he didn’t call it subpar, but that he reported fan reception as indicating it was subpar. Dave even called a contact who knows the regulars for WCCW’s shows in the area after getting this letter and asked him what people generally thought, and that contact also reported general disappointment. As to being more positive about WCCW, Dave gives credit where due (he was very positive on Michael Hayes as a booker), but the promotion is showing no signs of a turnaround. It’s loads better than it was when Fritz was still in charge, but they’re still flubbing basic business in so many ways and making terrible booking choices and Dave can’t just give them a pass for that. There’s also some stuff about WWF in here where the writer calls WWF fans idiots and claims nobody intelligent would pay to go to a WWF show, and Dave mentions that he has paid to go to WWF shows and finds them enjoyable as a social outing with friends, even if he’s not interested in their wrestling enough to go on his own. So yeah. Mostly included the stuff on this letter because it’s a peek behind the curtain of Dave’s contacts and how he gauged fan reactions back in the day.
  • Also, Percy Pringle is playing face and holding the mic for interviews on World Class tv now. Dave says his facial expressions are hilarious, and I’m demanding we get a Percy Pringle facial reactions subreddit and simp account like the Alexa Bliss one asap.

2020.11.18 21:05 portlane Patricia Parr (Jan. 9, 1932 - Sept. 25, 2020)

Patricia Ann Parr
Jan. 9, 1932 - Sept. 25, 2020
Patricia Ann "Pat" Parr, a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who always put her family first, died peacefully under the hospice care of the 5-West team at Providence St. Vincent's Hospital in Portland, Ore., Sept. 25, 2020.
A first-generation American, Patricia was born Jan. 9, 1932 in St. Paul, Minn., to Lebanese emigrant Anthony Charley and his wife, Marie. The family moved to Portland in the 1940s and Pat attended St. Mary's Academy in downtown Portland. She went on to the Providence School of Nursing, where her technical skills, strong work ethic and patient orientation led to her becoming head nurse of the surgical recovery floor immediately after graduation.
But perhaps the most notable event in her nursing education was her senior-year school prom, where she met Dwight Sigsbee Parr. It was love at first sight. The two married Dec. 27, 1954 and enjoyed a loving, enduring partnership for 62 years.
Pat worked as a nurse until her first child was born in 1955. She later stepped in as volunteer bookkeeper for her husband's business. Although she had no background in finance she handled the job with her typical patience and eye for detail, balancing accounts to the penny until the company could afford a full-time employee.
She was proud of her Lebanese heritage and admired her father's courage in coming to a new country as a teenager. She was an avid explorer of different cultures; when she and Dwight traveled they often chose sites of historical significance, including the ancient ruins of Greece, Mexico and Peru. They enjoyed more relaxed vacations as well in Hawaii and Southern California. She read widely, with history always her first choice.
Pat inherited her mother's skills as a seamstress and was accomplished at needlework and sewing. Her grandchildren were the lucky recipients of many outfits she designed and customized with a Mimi label, their affectionate nickname for her. She later discovered the game of Mahjong and became quite good at it. She was an excellent cook; her Christmas dinners were a family favorite.
A generous and loyal friend, Pat led with humility and appreciation for her blessings. Above all, family came first for her. She held high standards for her children, expecting (and getting) good manners and rejecting arrogance in all forms. She never sought out social accolades or status, focusing instead on the joys of family, friends and faith.
She felt a strong responsibility for others. After her successful recovery from breast cancer, Patricia and Dwight created the Parr Family Cancer Fund at Providence St. Vincent's to help patients with financial needs not covered by insurance.
Her adored husband, Dwight preceded her in death in January 2017. Her only sibling, Mary Ann Nicola also preceded her in death. She is survived by her children, Mary Brophy (Patrick), David Parr, and Michael Parr (Sharon); grandchildren, David Parr (Sara), Caroline Cath (Will), Kelly Sanders (Alex), Shannon Watson (Charlie) and Abbie and Kelsey Parr; and six great-grandchildren. Her devoted caregiver Kafo'atu (Kaye) Vete became a member of the family. The family also extends its deepest appreciation to Dr. Duc Nguyen and his team for the excellent care given to both Patricia and Dwight throughout their later years.
Due to the pandemic, the memorial service will be held at a later date. Donations may be sent to The Parr Family Cancer Fund, care of Providence St. Vincent's Medical Center.

How One Expat Couple’s Marriage Has Survived 25 Moves in 50 Years

https://preview.redd.it/pbz3r0cxf0061.png?width=775&format=png&auto=webp&s=d86a78a4ee96683f4e91f3cdda77dfe0b23aad8e
Psychologists Drs. John and Julie Gottman of The Gottman Institute separate couples into two major groups: the “masters” and the “disasters.” Masters remain happily together, while disasters either break up or are chronically unhappy. In Masters of Love, couples share thoughts about marriage and tell us what they have learned along the way.
Dan from Seattle, Washington met Nancy from Fort Worth, Texas in the fall of 1971 on Orientation Day at Richmond College in a suburb of London, England, where the two were studying abroad. They were married two years later.
After living in the Pacific Northwest for 26 years, they joined the State Department, which took them to nine separate tours of duty across five continents in 18 years. Today, Dan (69) and Nancy (69) are retired and live in Seattle, WA. They have two adult sons, Robert (31) and Michael (29).
We asked them about how they met, how they decided to live abroad, what the most rewarding and challenging aspects were, and their best advice for couples living overseas.
On their first meeting
Dan: We met on Orientation Day at Richmond College in a suburb of London, England, in the fall of 1971. We were both enrolled in a Junior-year-abroad program that had students from throughout the United States. We were both working part time. Nancy was going to work for a family as an au-pair in central London, and my roommate, Jim, and I were the program's mini-bus drivers. We asked Nancy and another young woman from Texas to join us at a riverside pub that evening. It didn't take long into the conversation before Nancy and I connected as if we were long-lost friends.
We connected at a basic value level that allowed me to feel completely safe in our conversation, and I was sharing feelings, hopes, and fears that I had never shared with anyone. We were together from that evening, although I tried to put up walls to avoid a commitment to her (and my own feelings). We continued to fall deeper in love the more we discovered about each other.
As a right-brain person and introvert, I love leading groups, but keep individuals at a distance. Nancy has a full spectrum of left-brain skills including math and science, organization, and planning. She is very extroverted, has no fear of mixing in new groups, and develops close friendships. We have found that we are an amazing, decisive team when we respect our different "lanes" in getting things done together.
Nancy: Dan was very talkative and sharp. We were immediately comfortable with each other and on our first date and we shared our secrets openly. We bonded and trusted each other immediately. We came together with core values in common, but our interests, skills, and abilities could not have been more different.
I believe opposites do attract. The Gottmans talks about how it’s not who you are or what you do that will help you find “the one.” Rather, it’s how you speak to each other, how well you get along, and how you move through time together. After 50 years together, we couldn’t agree more.

On deciding to live abroad
Dan: We met overseas, each with the intention to live and study in London for the school year. Nancy then returned home to live with her parents for the summer and work in her parent's church. I stayed and worked for the college in London and made money to allow me to spend three weeks in the Soviet Union with a small British student group (I had taken Russian in high school). We each returned to school in the United States in the fall—me in Seattle and Nancy in Green Bay.
Our relationship endured the distance and the time apart, but after the first term back at school, I asked Nancy to come to Seattle and marry me. I was nervous and fumbled the proposal badly over the phone, but she said yes and I drove to her parent's home to meet them at Christmas and brought her back to Seattle.
We were married 10 weeks later and three months after that accepted an offer to move back to London for a year and work for the college we attended. We saw this offer as an opportunity to travel more in the UK and on the European continent while having a place to live and flexible jobs to support ourselves financially. We loved the couple that we would be working for.
After this second year in London, we continued to travel overseas on vacations, but lived in apartments and houses in Washington State and Oregon that were close to various schools we attended and jobs we held. After 15 years of marriage, we decided to start a family. We had two boys a few years apart and they became part of our overseas travel adventures.
When they were both in elementary school, the state of Oregon passed a massive property tax rollback that slashed school funding. Nancy was doing her student teaching, having completed coursework for a Master's Degree in teaching. At the same time, the business we had owned for 15 years was in the middle of a technology shift and we had decided to sell the assets. We agreed it was time to leave Oregon.
We went to London where Nancy interviewed for teaching jobs in International Schools, and I sat for the State Department Foreign Service Officer Exam. The process was long and involved, but when offered a position with the State Department that required relocating to Washington, D.C. in six weeks, we said yes, then went to work to get it done.
Nancy: I remember as a middle school student in Fort Worth, Texas dreaming of living in other countries and of working in different jobs for a year or so. My father was an armchair traveler who read and watched TV specials about other countries, music, and art. My High School French Teacher led a group of students to France and I went with her when I was 16.
Dan and I lived in London for two years at the beginning of our relationship and traveled around the world many years before joining the State Department after 26 years of marriage. We joined the State Department after deciding to sell our business and I had finished a Master’s Degree in teaching.
We were at a turning point of looking at new opportunities and breaking away from our life in Portland, Oregon. We decided that we wanted to show our two sons a larger world than Portland offered us. We have moved 25 times in almost 50 years together, including nine times in 18 years with the State Department.
On the rewards of living abroad
Dan: As a couple, there are huge rewards to be gained by stepping outside your comfort zone and learning new things, not only about the local culture and people, but about yourself and each other as you face new challenges. Tourists never get the chance to burrow into local peoples' lives, compare differences in the way we look at the world.
For our sons, it was a chance for them to begin to realize all the things we have at home that we take for granted as normal: clean drinking water, electricity that runs all day, schools for all kids, good hospitals, ambulances, fire hydrants and fire trucks, flush toilets, and toilet paper (and what it was like to do without some of those things). For Nancy and I, rewards included learning to cook and eat new foods, attending ceremonies like weddings, church services, funerals, and local holiday celebrations, listening to local music and dances. Looking back at the US from abroad, through local eyes—discussing world events through a local lens.
Finally, sharing these experiences with each other, encouraging each other to keep learning, because at the same time it is exciting, it could also be exhausting.
Nancy: The most rewarding aspect to me was the interesting people and cultures that we learned about and the relationships that we developed. I love to learn new things and living abroad gave me that opportunity constantly.
https://preview.redd.it/3fflidj8g0061.png?width=607&format=png&auto=webp&s=005e0bb15b8bd72343c6e64225bd057ee0f74a07
On the challenges of living abroad
Dan: Managing the stress of constantly adjusting to new ways of getting things done. Each home leave we would disembark and welcome each other back "to the land where things work." As much as we complain, the United States works. Customer service, efficiency, product quality, endless public services, fire departments, and ambulances that take you on good roads to a decent hospital.
In so many countries, life is just much harder. Expats living abroad typically have the resources to secure items they need or want through the mail if they are not available locally, but in many countries basic services are lacking or simply don't exist. Government corruption can lead to many services being available only to those that pay a bribe. Public safety on the streets, safe construction of buildings, roads and electrical systems can be sketchy at best. The challenge is to get to know your complete environment and all its limitations. Always be prepared for the unexpected.
Always be prepared for the unexpected. When the unexpected happens, and it will, that is when the trust, mutual respect, and good communication skills you have built as a couple is a lifesaver. The challenges will test your bond as a couple. Having the right tools to fall back on will help turn the challenging times to ones of growth for your relationship.
Nancy: Keeping our family and work life balanced and making sure that all of us had the resources and support that we needed through the constant changing environment.
There can also be a lack of support of family and friends when you need them. The guilt and sadness weighs on you when you miss important events at home, like weddings and birthdays of loved ones, or worse, funerals and memorial services. I lost my mom when we were on our first overseas tour. Dan lost two of his three brothers and a sister-in-law while in Okinawa, a brother-in-law while in Geneva, and a sister while in Kigali. Those losses were so much harder when not surrounded by loved ones.
https://preview.redd.it/l6q9m5a9g0061.png?width=494&format=png&auto=webp&s=76b1426289503cb0d164432b151f75f2a61958d8
Their advice for couples living abroad
Dan: Our relationship faced different pressures in Geneva than it did in Abidjan or Kabul, and still different in Okinawa. In every environment, however, what we learned from the work of John Gottman was the importance of “fighting fair” as a multitude of stresses affected our day-to-day lives.
Ultimately, it comes down to treating each other with love and respect, even when we disagree. We had to learn the skills to resist the defensive reactions and simply listen, and to not discount each other’s feelings. We’re always on the same team.
Nancy: Constant change can be exhausting, but can build on the bonds in a marriage if you work on every transition together—always looking for solutions that meet each of your needs. The effort itself strengthens the lines of communication and builds trust and mutual respect, both elements that allow love in a relationship to thrive.
When two people have very different ways of approaching problems, you each have to respect and allow the other person’s approach. And even the best laid out plans can have different results than expected. You have to continue to work together without judgement and blame when things don’t turn out.

2020.11.18 03:03 portlane Patricia Lockard (March 11, 1924 - Nov. 10, 2020)

Patricia Jean Lockard
March 11, 1924 - Nov. 10, 2020
Patricia "Pat" Lockard passed away peacefully at her Newport beach condo after watching the sunset surrounded by the people she loved. It was a fitting end to her 96-year life well lived and just as she wanted.
Pat was born in Nashville, Tenn., and raised in Columbus, Ohio. After attending Ohio State she married her high school sweetheart, Bud Wood who was a fighter pilot in the Navy. After the Korean War Bud became a member of the Blue Angels and they moved to Corpus Christi, Texas. He was tragically killed during an air show in 1952, leaving her with their young son, Greg.
Pat returned to Ohio where she met her husband, Murray Lockard and they relocated to Lake Oswego in 1954 where he had accepted a new job with KPTV. They welcomed a second son, Scott who passed away unexpectedly in 2016. They made their home in Lake Oswego for 47 years before Murray's passing in 1990.
Throughout her life Pat was active in the community. She and Murray were cornerstone members of the United Methodist church. She loved volunteering her time for committees, fundraisers and the annual Holiday Bazaar that was so dear to her. She served as membership secretary and was the unofficial "funeral lady." She also served on the board of Rose Villa and the LO Adult Community Center where she served meals regularly.
Pat was a longtime supporter of the Little Theater which is now a part of the Lake Wood Theater. Murray performed in several of the early plays there and she continued her patronage for rest of her life.
Pat was a member of PEO and she cherished her longtime friendships with her PEO sisters. She was also a proud Tri Delt at Ohio State and took joy in sponsoring young college women joining her beloved sorority.
Pat worked for the Clackamas County Education Services District as an Administrative Assistant on the campus of Marylhurst. She watched as the construction of Mary's Woods took place and was one of the original residents in 2001. She had many friends there, new and old and took advantage of all the classes, concerts, lectures and outings they had to offer.
Pat lived an exemplary life and was an inspiration to everyone she met. She was the queen of cards and never missed sending one for any occasion, always with a kind personal note. She was curious about the world and never stopped her quest for knowledge. She enjoyed traveling, volunteering, puttering in the garden, shopping and her trusty old Chevrolet but her family, friends and faith were what mattered most. This one of a kind extraordinary woman with a progressive spirit and love for life will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched.
Pat leaves behind her son, Greg Wood of Portland; sister, Miriam Wagner and her family of Columbus, Ohio; daughter-in-law, Susan Lockard of Lake Oswego; grandchildren, Jordan, Zak and Faith; nine great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews and countless dear friends.
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions there will be a memorial service scheduled for a later date. In honor of Pat, please practice acts of kindness to others. Contributions may also be made in her memory to United Methodist church of Lake Oswego.

2020.11.17 14:20 More_Locksmith_1521 Moving back home at 29. Advice.

So basically I left my father at 16 , he was a single military father of whom raised me and my sister. I left at 16 due to me being a delequant child and didn't care about school , money or my future or rules. I moved to ma and ended up in the Foster Care system , ended up graduating high school and attended college. I did horrible tbh I didn't care about school I was burnt . I moved to Portland or at 23 years of age and attended beauty school with the idea that I would be a hairstylist and go back to college part time. I graduated at 25 . Shortly after I met my ex of whom I knew was bad for me but I obviously was so in love . I ended up moving to a small town on the west coast with him. We dated for almost 4 years. I put myself back in school I have 60 college credit and gpa of 3 .52 I just need a college algebra course and a tech writing class and I can transfer to a university. My ex left me recently for a 20 year old...my ex said he doesn't want what I want in life and wants to have fun , party, do drugs , travel and be in my eyes a loser considering he is almost 30 and has only had a few jobs in the fast food service industry. Happy I didn't have a child with him or get married because we would be screwed. Obviously I'm broken hearted but taking it as a blessing in disguise. My closes family members are my sister in San Diego and my father in Fayetteville NC . I'm ok with the breakup, it was a learning lesson and It made me realize all I want in life is to be independent and hold my own in this world, have a man in my life that wants similar things, family , kids house , retirement. I just want to focus on my studies and get a decent job . Im almost half way done and if I do it right I'll be 32 by the time I'm finished with about 40 k in debt (scary) . My father wants me to come home my sister has also offered. Would it be a good idea to finish and move with them. Of course I'll be working paying rent etc etc . I just really need a support system . I've failed in my eyes and I just want to be with people whom believe in me and can help reach my end game . I can also finish college and stay in state my issue is Im alone with no support and it bothers me like if I lose my job, get into a car wreck, get a flat tire I'm screwed. Over all I hate Oregon also ...no offense and I miss my family. I've been on my own for 10 years with no help from family and it just hasn't worked in my favor. Have Mercy.

2020.11.17 06:07 Herald_of_Cthulu My partner's Ex is taking advantage of them and living with them rent-free.

My partner and their ex were in a financial situation where my partner was the sole source of income for their apartment, which they were both cool with at the time because they were dating. Both my partner and their ex are currently both signed onto an apartment lease in Portland, Oregon, that renews on a month by month basis. They broke up about two months ago and about that same time me and my partner started dating. However, their financial situation hasn't changed. My partner is still paying for food, rent, utilities, and even their ex's phone bill. Every time they try and tell their ex to get a job and start paying for their own phone bill and rent and food, they dodge the question, say they'll "do it later" or complain about how difficult it is to find a job right now during covid.
Its pretty evident to me that their ex has been using tactics often used by abusers in abusive relationships to take advantage of my partner, and I've been talking with them about possible avenues they can take.
So far we've discussed, because of covid and everything, to give their ex an ultimatum that if they don't get a job and start paying for their half of the rent and utilities and their own food and phone bills in a few months they're gonna get cut off. The issue is, their ex is a very stubborn person (as well as, again, uses a bunch of deflecting tactics that honestly remind me of what i know of abusive relationships) and we were wondering what legal avenues my partner has in terms of kicking them out, should their ex simply be uncooperative? The ex could easily move back in with their parents should they move out so that isn't an issue there, but my partner doesn't have many options to turn to and kinda has to live in that apartment.
Thanks for any and all help in advance!

James E. Brisbee
Nov. 5, 1944 - Oct. 12, 2020
Jim passed away, unexpectedly, Oct. 12, 2020, at his home on the Wilson River in Tillamook, Ore., with his wife, Peggy, at his side. They had been married for 56 years.
Jim was born to Loretta and Verne Brisbee in Portland, Ore. He graduated from Franklin High School where he met his future wife. They were married in July of 1964. In the late 1980's they bought property on the river and built a cedar log home in 1992. Jim had fished that river since his teens, first as a "bankee" and then from boats that became exponentially larger as the years passed! After retirement, he and Peggy lived there year round. He was living his dream!
Jim was preceded in death by his parents. In addition, he is survived by his two children, Mark (Stacy) and Kelly Ingraham-German; and his grandchildren, Tyler, Parker and Baylee Brisbee and Alec Ingraham and Wyatt German. He also leaves his brother, Larry (Kathy); his sister, Donna (Randy); as well as "spare sis" Jeri (Jim) and their families. He will also be missed by his longtime fishing friends including, Jack, Ed, Dan, Micki and friend to the end, Scott.
At his request, no services will be held. His ashes will be spread on his beloved river at a later date.
