Some of you are wondering about my cycling nephew, since his blog has been pretty quiet lately…www.thecyclesherpa.blogspot.com.
His last post was July 9, but that doesn’t mean he is frozen in time! Not hardly. He was steadily pedaling through lots of “no service” areas and unable to post. He had a deadline to get to Oregon in time to meet his dad, just E of Portland, last Saturday. They both made it…and have been having a blast together with friends and family this week. Bob wanted to help celebrate Xander’s 20th birthday on the 4th. Happy Birthday, Xander! You will definitely remember this particular birthday. Continue to enjoy your long ride…with the darling Miss Ella!
Speaking of birthdays, a big happy birthday to baby sister Nan (grandmother of Xander)! Our Mother had a tradition of calling (far too early) on our birthdays, and singing the HB song to us kids. Nan and I have carried on that tradition to each other (at a more reasonable hour of the morning) each year since her death. Nan missed my call today. I left her a VM on her phone. I’m sure she listened, laughed…and promptly hit DELETE. It’s the thought, not talent, that counts, right?! It’s a family tradition. I will see your face soon, but until then…ta da…Smile!
Life is a one-time offer. Use it well.
Let’s do it!
