I know I am late getting this out but, yesterday, I was at a Mother’s Day/Graduation Celebration at my daughter’s house in Chesterfield. Her daughter just graduated Richard Bland College (a branch of William and Mary University). Everyone was there and it was great. To all the mothers that read this HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY and many more to come. I hope that you are taking it easy today or, if you are reading this after Sunday, you took it easy and had a great day. You all deserve it more than I can say.
I haven’t had much time to ride my bicycle because of commitments and the weather. I know there are riders that ride in any weather, at any time, but I do not. Mine is strictly a fair weather thing and for exercise. It is better than a stationary bike and requires many more muscles. On a two wheeler, a person must maintain balance, go up and down hill, dodge vehicles and obstacles and use almost every muscle in the body. That is exercise over being on a gym bike.
The people playing the WII on Thursday and Sunday afternoons (ran by my wife, Alba) seem to be having a good time. I have sat in the White Squirrel drinking draft beers and cheering them on. A couple of people, which have been there from the beginning, have been absent the past couple of times but the majority is still there and wants to expand. They are looking great and, believe it or not, it is mild exercise.
Imperial Plaza, as scheduled, went to Maryland Live casino and, as usual, it was great. I enjoy these trips because I don’t have to drive and it is so relaxing. This way I can eat, drink alcohol and play without the thought of driving. The bus still had empty seats although it is usually full. Maybe people are finding other things to do during the warm weather months. I understand because I also have so much on my plate that I can’t attend everything I used to attend. I will try to do better but, as I said a few times before, I will get my bicycling in when the weather allows.
I am asking you to pass this blog on to others as well as my Facebook page and my writings with Yahoo Voices. Bye-bye!
