The Paregien Journal – Issue 312 – November 12, 2015 – Stan Paregien, Editor
On Sunday afternoon, Oct. 18th, we said a temporary goodbye to Don and Judy Betts in Sedona, Arizona and took a shuttle bus ride to a hotel near Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix. The next morning, we got up at 4 am and took the hotel shuttle to the airport. I got on a plane at one gate and flew (eventually) to Florida. Meanwhile, Peggy got on a different plane at a different gate and flew to Portland, Oregon.
Peggy’s main purpose for this trip was to get to spend some time with her OLDER sister, Paula Allen King. We say “OLDER” to differentiate Paula from Peggy’s OLDEST (aka, REALLY OLD) sister Charlotte Allen Gardner Richardson in Indianapolis, Indiana. Okay, okay. Enough with the aging jokes. We’re all so old that most of the policemen, airplane pilots and doctors look like they’re just barely past their teenage years.
Anywho, Paula King lives in Kaizer, Oregon. It is a small town about 4 miles north of Salem, the capital city of Oregon. And Salem is about 50 miles south and slightly west of Portland.

End of Part 1
Part 2 of Peggy’s trip to Oregon will follow.
And then the plan is to complete the review I started of the 2012 autobiographical book written by Marco Rubio, current U.S. Senator from Florida who is fighting to become the Republican candidate for President of the United States.
