Monday Lazy--Cont.

Ok, ok, I put on the sunscreen, hopped on Jamis, and headed out. It was two miles to the card store, where I purchased a couple of birthday cards for fifty-five cents. Then I headed over to the tobacconist, about 2.3 miles down the road, where I purchased a couple cartons of cigarettes. THEN, fighting a trememdous head wind, I pedaled to the library, another 2 miles. I picked up three books, all science fiction, then headed home. There were 9.19 miles on the meter by the time I got garaged.

Next, having paid the bills, I need to purchase some stamps, as the postage seems to have gone up recently! A bunch of 41 cents stamps is not gonna do it! So I shall have to go out again.

Got an e-mail announcing the Bike The Bay ride on September 7, 2008. The route will go across the bay on the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge. If you are into organzied rides, this ought to be a good one. The last time we could bike across the bay was over twenty years ago, sez the ride web site. I remember doing the Tour Of Five Cities, an AYH ride, I think, a LONG time ago*. It was fabulous going across the bridge! If you have the fifty or so bucks to spare**, I would recommend it. The rest of the bay is interesting, too. Many people don't know we have a salt works in the lower bay, for one thing.

* I could look it up in an old log, but I would have to go out to the garage.
** Fifty bucks? Yikes! That's a lot of money for a t-shirt!

Later!

Bike The Bay sounds cool. I'll have to find out if Linda is going to do that one but being that it costs $50, I doubt it! ZOINKS! Better be one cool t-shirt for that price. Lazy Monday here as well. My parents left this morning. They haven't been home for almost a month! Jacob started his swim lessons again today. Tomorrow is karate. I'm tired as I've been going bed way too late & getting up early. Kind of mopey...miss Toshi. John picked up his ashes the other day. They are in a nice little cedar box with a brass lock, 2 sets of keys and a round nametag with his name engraved on it. We also received an clay impression of his paw print & death certificate and a nice copy of the Rainbow Bridge poem. Sigh. Guess I should get dinner ready. Leftovers tonight---teriyaki chicken.
