Work Hangover Wednesday: A Beautiful Day in the Hood
Work was busy again. I'm glad it is, it's job security in a time of uncertainty in health care. Cancer doesn't slow down in a tough economy.
So I have a lot of little things to report on today. Easter Sunday was a good day, except I never made it to the sunrise run. I was having trouble sleeping and was still awake at 1 am, so decided to turn off my alarm and bag it, and just meet Paul at the lakes. I ended up getting 20 miles for the day. Afterwards Dennis and I went out to some friends' for Easter brunch and hung out in the yard, it was a gorgeous day.
I'm not sure what Paul was doing here. Trying to prove that middle-aged ultrarunners can still catch air? He has less gray hair than I do, I think he was just showing off.
This morning while I was brain dead I went to the bike shop and talked to a bike nerd about the "Rocket" project. He gave me some pointers on building this thing from the two strollers I have. I just need someone with some tools and creativity to fit it, and make the bolts stay without too much adjusting. This is going to be interesting. Dennis thinks he can probably do most of it, and our next door neighbor is a retired high school shop teacher who might be able to help, too. We should be able to do it without any welding.
Somewhere on a stone tablet it says thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's garden. But I do anyway. I am hoping to get our phlox to spread like this, but I haven't had much luck.
And then there's always the oddball in every neighborhood.
What would Mr. Rogers do?
