Ooooh! Aaaah!

Lovely view from the roof deck. (And no, I didn't take any digital photos. Too busy watching the show to futz with the camera. Sorry.) There were eight people there when I went up, and about two dozen eventually gathered. You can't see the fireworks on the Willamette watefront because the Tiffany Center blocks the view; but you can see the show at PGE Park, and about eight or ten other shows along the northern horizon. A couple of people brought sparklers and the like; the bartender from downstairs was there with his wife and their little girl. The nice-looking young black woman with the copious afro was there. It was fun, mellow, awesome.
