It's Going To Be A Good Day

We need something light and cool today. Something to take the edge off all our troubles and remind us all that sometimes 'just because' is all the excuse we need.

Behold Alejandro Paz in all his glory.

I love my mountain bike and hold my own technical skills in no small esteem but this guy makes me look like a 5 year old on training wheels.

I think we need some more of that awesomeness. 

Wow. I counted approximately eleventy billion times where I would have wiped out and eaten a face full of dirt. At least.

Remember. It's good to be alive. It's good to live in America. It's good to have friends and family and those who are just so special to us. Ignore for a day your cares and woes and revel in life and love and just being free.

Lu and I send each of you our love and our prayers. May this day be a good one.

Bicycle riding is quite fun, though I've never done it in wild environments like mountains. Just pedaling and going really fast feels awesome.

That guy is in a class by himself.

And may your day be just as good as the one you wish for us, friend.

A cruiser on the beach is more my style...

Now that's skill!

And Amen and right back at ya on the good day. Remember that no tomorrow is guaranteed and any morning that we wake up this side of the grass it's a good day!

Everybody wipes out sooner or later on a bike. Even if you are highly technical, you will meet the ground one day. . . That said, neat!!!!

Those were some fun ride videos, Six! We ended up having a good trip, despite various family illnesses, though DH is really not well today despite medicines. Hopefully the lung crud he has will go away soon!
