I've been swamped at work and home, meaning the blog has been idle for a week now. That's not good, need to do my part in filling up the Internet. Remember - it's only a exhibition, not a competition - please, no wagering.
I took today off from riding - woke up late, a little hammered from the last two days of riding, plus my back is tweaked out a bit. Riding home on Monday, I felt pretty good and cruised at 20-22 mph for quite awhile. For me (Al Franken), that's fast. Also spotted, then rode with some kid on a cool vintage Pinarello, complete with Campy Record Delta brakes. You don't see those often. I thought about asking the kid to stop, so I could snap some pictures - but felt kind of goofy about it and didn't. That's rare for me - goofy is usually not a problem.
Over the weekend, my 5 year old daughter Amy had a dance recital. A very big deal for her and mom - lots of practice, special dress, flowers, pictures, dance on a real stage - the whole shindig.
Friday was a full dress dry run, then the real deal on Saturday to a packed house. Loads of insanely cute little girls involved with the program. Of course Ian whined and complained about the whole thing, but I guess that's normal for a 9 year old brother. By coincidence, coworker of mine - his daughter is in the same class as Amy and they danced together - that was great. On top of that, one of Amy's little friends recently joined the class and danced also. A fun time for all.
After the recital, a celebration at Ruby's Dinner - Amy's choice. It's fun having a girly-girl daughter to balance out the activities we enjoy with Ian - very different worlds.
We're very fortunate parents to have such cool kids.
