We are in Hillsboro, Oregon, about 20 miles west of Portland. We are here to have Ms. Tioga's transmission oil changed tomorrow morning. Hillsboro is a very friendly homey town. We found a street fair going on. Everybody smiles. It is wonderful. So many people from Hillsboro turn out, and this fair happens every Tuesday !! There were dozens of stands selling everything from berries to falafel.

We met a fellow named Joe Sticka who was displaying his 1941 Willys pickup truck. It was so beautiful, so restored. My Dad had a 1941 Willys sedan. Below is a pic of Joe's 1941 Willys.

  1. Ten years later, I don't think Hillsboro is as homey anymore as it used to be :(, I work there and it's become more of a town of more diversity, but less community.
