Saturday Afternoon Fun on Wheels

Saturday, 30-June-2007 - Boerdonk - I was watching the weather radar and looking at the sky to see if it was going to stay dry enough to go skating with the Fun-on-Wheels group. I hopped on my bike and made it to the Sligro meeting place just before the group took off at 1630. They decided to wait a couple of minutes for me to put on my skates. It's a rule that we always leave on time. We had seven skaters--good for 20 km.

Along My Jogging Route

Saturday, 30-June-2007 - Veghel - Slept in 'til 0930 today. Thought about eating a whole bag of corn chips last evening while watching a movie (sorry, Rosan), so I wanted to work that off before eating breakfast. I looked oustide at the weather, stretched, and started jogging in the direction of Vorstenbosch. After only a kilometer, I felt my left knee hurting, so I turned back. Then I remembered that I hadn't seen the sheep down the road in a while, so I decided to take is easy and continue to Vorstenbosch. Passed a nice corn field and took a picture for my brother-in-law, Steve.
