We always make sure to stop at our favorite restaurant. Great atmosphere, if you like cats:
This is how Jimmy looks everytime he gets into the RV and sees me in the passenger seat and not behind the drivers wheel:

I stopped to pee behind a couple of nice sized rocks. While I was doing my thing, I peered through the rocks to find a plastic container that was wrapped in electrical tape. I grabbed the heavy container with one hand and pulled up my shorts with the other. I was so exctied to show Lisa. Was it drugs? Money? Body parts? Our minds were frenzied with excitment.

I do this twice a week and LOVE it. I feel great and the clothes are uber-cute:
Doing this twice a week, I can finally see my
tricep muscles and am developing flat abs.
I am a believer of this type of training:
Running twice a week really sucks, but it's a required course, as a part of my undergraduate work. I run 2-4 miles and hate every step of the way. I don't know how I ever managed to do a marathon!

" Hope you had a wonderful day and wishing you a joyous year! Don't fret turning 45 as I've recently learned just being around for another year is exciting by itself :)"
Why this is so pertinent, is that she has cancer and was given 3-6 months to live....last year. What the f*#k was I belly-aching about?! Her single sentence put it all in perspective for me.

So, I decided to ride above the soot:
To the Kings Canyon National Park:
This was my first ride in about 10 days, so I was doing my own ride. No goals, no expectations, no schedule, no riding partner. Entering the park, entailed a 15-mile ascent; which I had not done since riding in the French Alps. I was thrilled to be out again on my bike so with each turn, I was glad to see the road continuing to rise into the pines.

A.A. is a local pet rescue haven that currently houses 85 dogs, 5 bunnies, 10 goats and 1 sheep. Soon they will be adding a cattery to their collection. Located in the middle of the grapevineyards, is where you will find their 5-acre parcel. The pooches are housed according to size. Each pen has lots of shade, a pool, a barn and plenty of room to run.
The senior and special needs dogs are our favorite. These teen volunteers are holding an abandon 4-month old Chihuahua and a 6-month, blind pup. Both are adorable and lovable....the teens were pretty nice, too!

pondering life pose
Bo was sick of watching the cat go through her entire set of poses and decided to take a nap....this is what he does most often these days.
I know, I'm a goober...........

In a nutshell, Katie, Tracy and I were lining up for the final few laps, in a break. Racer Girl X was in front and either, slowed her speed dramatically or made an erratic move, but Katie's wheel got clipped and she went down. Tracy got nipped and went down. Somehow, I managed to escape any injuries.
Katie had alot of road rash and sustained injuries to her knee and hip area. She was able to limp away and went to see a doctor.
Tracy was not so lucky. I have been getting alot of questions about her recovery, so I am posting Tim's blog address, where he talks about her injuries. Also, he added their mailing address, so we can send her a card.

We watched the sunning seals, while chomping on salt water taffy.
For our next outing, we went to the Winchester Mystery House, which was really cool. Bridgit invested $7.00 in an all-you-can-drink soda cup, which she promptly slurped up her money's worth of Dr. Pepper...again, providing me with hours of laughter. http://www.winchestermysteryhouse.com/
Oddly (or eerie-ly) my camera would not work inside the mansion, so I have no pics to show you. The tour took us about 3-hours and it was worth every penny. The craftsmanship is simply amazing.
We headed back to Fresno, where I was happily greeted by Jimmy and doggie, Bo. Though we missed our families, Bridgit and I had a great time and we cannot wait to do this again.
