Incidentally, a good ol’ Oregon friend, has delighted me once again with her astute powers of observation:

The aura of the Woodsman Restaurant sign has burnt out:

The Woodsman Rest____nt

A picture will hopefully be posted soon. Unless after months of neglecting the dearly departed neon letters, The Woodsman suddenly lit up their aura again.

… a burnt-out aura. I needed a good smart laugh like that. These classes I’m taking… a couple of them are not making me feel smart… yet.

But this image of the burnt-out aura has me thinking about a great new indy band that shall call themselves “Burnt Out Aura” and the cover art for their very first album will be a photograph of the Woodsman, with the burnt out letters front and center. I would buy that album.
