Some of you may remember WAY back when I first started becoming fascinated with the racers I described some of the women as-- "gorgeous MN blonds we all take for granted up here, but would knock socks off anywhere else in the country" etc etc. Now I'm happy to say I do actually know some of them. I've gotten to know a lot of riders now at the trail, and feel like part of the gang, even though I still wish I had more gal pals to ride with. (My offer to take anyone wanting to try this on a newbie ride is a standing one BTW.)
Sam came in handy in another way last week too. Remember the vid I posted on facebook of the homeless kitty at the steelyard? (If you are not on FB, well, You miss stuff is all I can say. :) )
Sam wound-up adopting her. She was NOT happy about being crated-up though. She'll be so much safer now, being a pet instead of dodging forklifts & trucks, but she didn't of course understand what was happening, only that she was being uprooted. ~Dislike~
"Go away-- dumb paparazzi!"
It's a matter of time now, before I walk out and see my flowers have all withered from frost. It's the whole seasonal thing. It's always a mixed bag of feelings when fall/winter comes. I hate to see summer go. I rely heavily on my outdoor workspace for almost all the painting I do, and just-- summer is awesome. (I wound-up really loving my random mix of annuals. Just a crazy riot of color. The nasturtiums went nuts. For sure doing those again next year.)
Tomorrow I'm going to make time to have lunch with my folks at this lobster wagon we've been drooling over for at least a month. I'll just work extra fast before and after. ;)
