Never have seen a C-f-A. Been to "All Others" many times.

When I have to go to Portland, I usually buy four or five Arby's.

Subway is good, local and relatively cheap. One foot long is two meals.

BK? Every now and then. Their burgers do taste good, and I enjoy Onion Rings as a treat.

Taco Bell. Six crunchy with Fire Sauce.

Mickey D. Best fries I've had from there was at the McDonald's across the street from The Lubyanka.

They've opened a Chick-fil-A at Tanasbourne, where the Newport seafood restaurant used to be. Never been to one. I'm surprised that Chipotle gets the rating it did, given all of the bad publicity.

Never been there, either. I've been on rare occasions at McDonald's and Wendy's and BK. I remember when McDonald's sold hamburgers for 18 cents. But they didn't have indoor seating....

Blast from the past. We used to get hamburgers at Scotty's on 12th & Sandy Blvd/Burnside. ( Does that count as All Others?

I like Subway too, OG. But only get there rarely.

Max, when the first McDonald's opened around here hamburgers where 15 cents and fries 10 cents. Just needed a quarter. I forget what milkshakes were, but not that expensive.

I've been wanting to try Chick-fil-A, but not enough to go to Tanasbourne. Heh.

Had to drive by Scotty's twice a day on Sundays. Dad was the choir director for Rose City Park Presbyterian Church. We lived in Garden Home.

Very rarely could parents be cajoled into burgers and fries. Besides, Sunday was usually fried chicken. Mashed potatoes. And, when in season, corn on the cob.

Fried chicken and corn on the cob sound pretty good. Funny how fast food is so compelling when you're young.

Your Dad was a first rate musician too, wasn't he? Part of a wonderful family background to have.

Most of us were musical. Mom met dad at music school at U of I. My oldest sister still sings with a choir in Portland, my #2 sis has performed in musical performances--including Gilbert & Sullivan on stage at Beijing National Theater--during her stay in China. Both sons are very musical, eldest French Horn and guitar, my youngest being a fantastic oboist, played bull fiddle and plays guitar. Perfect pitch. Amazing.

My cousin in Spokane was Ms Teenage Idaho and performed with a three manual/pedal organ for her talent competition.

My uncle and his son are both union musicians. If you have Netflix, you can see my cuz in Bill Murray's Christmas special playing the sax.

Yeah, I've been around some music. Mom and Dad started the Community Concert series for Portland back in the '60's. And Dad, for years, ran the summer music series Haystack Festival in Cannon Beach, the choral section of the Lewis & Clark College Summer music camp, and the annual Music In May honor choir at Pacific University. To name a few.

And OG is musical as well. At least, I hear he toots a lot (especially after a bean supper)....

One of my brothers plays the piano easily and my sister could sing professionally. Me, I had to memorize everything in piano lessons--nothing natural. I can read music. That's about it. Besides, along with the Greeks, thinking music has an amazing power of the soul.
