Day Trip- Movie Madness

Madras, OR    H85  L 45

The heat wave of the past three weeks has broken here in the high desert.  It will be returning I am sure by the end of the month though. It is the high desert after all. Judy and I headed out of the campground Sunday about noon. Our co-host covered the last two hours of our shift so we could get on the road early for the drive to Portland. Thanks Don, Linda and Mick.

We always enjoy visiting with our son because we know he is going to show us something in Portland that casual visitors will most likely not see, not to mention getting to try different eating venues that have their own unique atmosphere. This trip we visited a very interesting movie rental business called “Movie Madness”.  He just happened to visit it a couple of weeks earlier. In addition to specializing in older movies, it also has on display many artifacts, props and clothes from many movies. Jason had mentioned to me a couple of weeks ago that it had the rifle used by John Wayne in the movie “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance”(one of my favorite movies). Also on display were items from, Psycho, Wizard of Oz, Westside Story, and many more.

Here are a few pics. Sorry about the reflections in the glass.
