He has another forever home now and will be waiting to greet you, tail wagging, licking, jumping for joy when you meet again.

Sorry to hear about Mr C. We've had a dog(s) for 47 of the 48 years we've been married and having one pass on you is like losing a close family member. Sometimes it's even harder.

Drove about 15 miles to get to the area I wanted to ride. I touched the extent of my childhood stomping grounds, with the bracelets. And I also introduced them to a new gps, the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt, as well as a shave of my aerobars. (I typically use tree aerobars for my over night multi day rides) Tour De Yellow Bracelet!! - Road Bikes first off, I just had to put this in! I can relate to Zits

Received bracelets in the mail last night. Thanks Joe! I left early this morning with a couple of friends to visit the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens where lotuses and water lilies are grown. This time of year, the lotuses are in bloom. Its less than 5 miles from my home and recently very accessible thanks to the creation of a new bike trail, the Anacostia River Trail. Early departure, with hopes of getting to work on time, I spent to long at the gardens and was as late as ever to work. Bracelets in a picture of lotuses. A dried out lotus seed pod. Water lily. Close up of lotus blossom.

That was a great close out ride, Iron! Thanks for taking us with you. I especially liked the fairy ring. That's really cool.

Qms, you never cease to surprise Those flowers are amazing. I look forward to seeing what else you have in store.
