Summer Fun

It's 105 degrees in Portland right now. The heatwave started yesterday, and is expected to last through the end of the week. This town has a lot of public fountains and other water features to play in, and they've brought out kids and adults alike seeking relief.

This is a pleasant little two-minute interview with a guy who makes a big slip 'n' slide in a local park (called Brooklyn Park, of all things) every summer. He sets it up and keeps an eye on things, and just watches happy kids and their parents all day. There are worse fates.

The pinnacle of what a neighborhood man can aspire to do. I'd rather build a waterslide than put a man on the moon. Well, at least this summer.

I don't know if I'm just hormonal, but the video made me teary. Such an awesome guy. You can tell he's really fond of watching those kids have fun on and appreciate something he's made.
