Today was quite the exciting day - First it started out with me attempting to get in a nice bike ride, and I did manage to get in about 12.5 miles. The challenge with the ride was that I felt like I hit nearly every red light on the course and for whatever reason the crazies were out in force, in their cars. I spent about as much time on the 12.5 mile ride as I would if it had been over 15 miles. After the ride Linda had to get to a doctor appointment, and that was about the smoothest thing that happened today.
Linda got to the doctor's office, almost exactly when the appointment was supposed to be and within a few minutes she was in with the doctor. The visit didn't last long and we were back on our way back to the house. We were both thinking about the luncheon with the Nice Guys and both looked at the radio clock at about the same moment. It was one of those moments when you both start talking about the same thing at the same time - nice to know we think similarly. She called Jason to ask him to start getting ready, so that we could get going shortly after we got home.
We arrived at the house and I immediately grabbed the vacuum, so that I could clean out the dog hair in the back seat. We wanted to have the truck looking nice, since it was the Nice Guys who were able to assist and make Jason getting this truck a reality. We then drove through a car wash, and from there on to the restaurant. We had a great time at the restaurant, and it was fabulous finally getting to meet the Nice Guys members, and for Jason to be able to thank them personally. We left the restaurant feeling good and feeling full.
Finally back at the house, Linda and I decide to walk over to Target - it is about a mile from here, and we needed to walk off a little of the meal. On the way back we stopped at the "Family Fun Day" that was going on here, at the Gate Way, and looked around a bit. It was something they had done for the kids in the military housing, and I think they did a good job of it. The rest of the evening was spent at the house, where we had a nice simply dinner and Linda and I watched Brave Heart (for about the 6th time). I was amazed... it still ended the same way... ;-) Thank you, for all the support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
