Englebert has been complaining that he never gets out anymore. It was a warm and sunny Sunday in Portland, so we took that unusual occurrence as an opportunity for a metropolitan jont. The Earth’s gravity is unfriendly to our celestial friends, so we provided him with a cot and medical assistance as he took in the air.
He met many, many friends along the way. Young and old wanted to photograph him,talk to him, ask about him, poke his head…In all, a beautiful outing!

Yesterday, we experienced a most peculiar event. A couple came in to renew their wedding vows, right in front of Bigfoot! They are in pursuit of the world record for most wedding vows for a married couple. We understand the record is 101, so they should have this in the bag. They were a charming couple, and even brought their own cake (which we covered with bugs, because that’s how we roll). Their vow renewals, officiated by Lisa in her official Peculiarium lab coat, included some lovely verses from Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven. Many witnesses enjoyed the event and the cake, including a few folks with awesome timing who were just walking to the bus stop down the street. We wish Carrie and Marcellus many, many renewed vows, and hope they get their world record!
