Nothing much going on....just life....Saturday to Thursday

Wow!  Has it been almost a week since I last updated this blog!  Yep, no denying the obvious.  Elaine and I have continued to ride our bikes most days, and on those days when Elaine wasn't interested I rode my mountain bike.  I've ridden that trail behind the house 3 times now, and am really enjoying it.  From the end of the cul-de-sac down to Hangman Valley Road is 2 miles.  When I hit the road, I turn around and ride back to the top just behind my sister's home, but not all the way back to the cul-de-sac, then all the way back down to Hangman, then all the way back to the cul-de-sac....about 7.3 miles total, and a very good workout!

During the last week Elaine and I took out the tandem and rode a 15 mile loop down Hatch Road to Hangman Valley Road to Polouse HWY to 57th street, and back "home", as well as a couple of single rides.

We went out to dinner at Picabu Bistro where we enjoyed their Angry Prawns (drenched with their famous Fire Sauce) and Fire Pasta (again drenched in that famous Fire Sauce).  This is my second time to Picabu and enjoyed it just as much as the first time.  That Fire Pasta has a unique sauce ("Fire Sauce"), ingredients unknown, of which you cannot get enough!



Last night, Thursday, we went out for dinner again at Luna, another great local restaurant no more than 3 miles from "home".  Bob and I had steaks, and the girls (Elaine, Hilary, and Hilary's daughters) had Creamy Leek Risoto.  This restaurant is pricey, but the food is very good, and they have a great wine list.


Yesterday Elaine and I took my mother, Virginia, to lunch at the MacKenzie River Pizza Company.  They have a number of locations in the western U.S.  The food was good, and they offer a number of local craft beers on tap.


My sister left this morning for Boston with her oldest daughter, to visit a few colleges, and spend a few days at Nantucket, and then back to Wyoming to meet her husband and younger daughter at a "dude" ranch the visit most every summer.  We will be babysitting their 3 King Charles Spaniels while they are gone.  We will be riding several local trails during the next two weeks.....Centennial Trail, Fish Lake Trail, Hiawatha Trail, etc.

The weather is beginning to warm up into the 70's.....lol!  We have had rain on and off the last week, and a spectacular thunder/lightning storm a few nights ago.  We are enjoying this down time, and continuing to work on small coach projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
