So, I said I couldn't find the green neon building. Mr. Chatterbox said he lived in Portland, but didn't know either. Then he mentioned a specific building. Hmm. I tried the Koin 6 building he'd mentioned. Nope. I then started, somewhat pedantically, asking Google Image, "does (building name) have green neon". I had to look up several buildings, but I finally came up with names of the bigger ones in downtown.
And finally, I am 98.6% sure I have found the building in question. This picture is of the Bank of America in Portland, and it certainly looks like the image I saw in the news.
Why not 100%? I need to look on a map, and see if it's near the Koin 6 tower, thereby solving the mystery of Dad's curiosity.
I get focused on the strangest things...
(After some fighting with Google and MapQuest, I think I am right. I am still not sure, as the closest they are is a couple city blocks from one another, and I can't convince MapQuest OR Google to show me the general layout. So, until I can go to Portland sometime, or something, that will be my answer, I guess...)
And, as of December 17th, I received a response from Koin 6... And I quote...
be the Bank of America Center.
So. If folks in the tower aren't even entirely sure, I guess this is about as good as it gets, folks. I will file this under mystery pretty well solved.
Now I just need to figure out why I can have nothing happen all day, but when I go to the bathroom, the phone rings, or someone comes to the door...
