For those of you who are just now checking this blog out: I suggest that you read all of the posts on this home page. Those posts will give you an idea of what has been happening at all of the warming centers that I've visited around the Portland Metro Area.
You are welcome to leave me a comment or send me an email.
Last night I ended up at the warming center run by some kind-hearted folks at a nice church building in Forest Grove, Oregon.
The man is like everyone's favorite uncle and the woman knits prayer shawls.
Some rougher people came in but the old folks weren't fooled by them.
In fact, when the lights went out, the uncle man came up to me and said, "They should be asleep soon..they've been drinkin' all day."
Until he said that, I had no idea that he'd even noticed their demeanor.
I will be there until Monday morning when I will have to figure out an alternative.
