From what I understand of Portland, there should be more chickens in that yard.
Dustin Moore occasionally likes to scroll through Google Street View images of his home state of Oregon when he's bored. A week ago, his younger brother pointed him to their grandmother's house in Portland, where she could be seen sitting on the steps and reading the paper. It was an "uplifting and awesome" moment, captured in time by a camera better known for chronicling people's break-ups and roadside trysts. And Moore was all the more grateful for the photo because Grandma Alice passed away this year.
Once Moore posted his story on reddit, it quickly went viral and was picked up by several major news outlets. Moore told KATU, “I made the joke with my brother. I was like, ‘Well, grandma’s gone, but she still somehow lives on in Google and is watching over us.'" Let's hope she sends some really good Google Ads your way, Dustin.
Here's a close up of Grandma:
