    Can you tell I am a happy man?

    A couple of weeks ago my 32 year old son told me he was going to buy a bike. He has not ridden since he turned 16 or so. He ended up with a beach cruiser to pull his son around the beach town they live in.

    Today I drive into St. Paul to have lunch with my 22 year old daughter. She says, "Dad, I have some time freed up over the 4th of July, wanna go on a bike tour?"

    Made my month let me tell you.

    Good for you. Nice to have family share your interests.

    She and I did a tour last year, her first and she fell in love with it. She lives in Minneapolis and commutes to work. She rides if she is able.

    I would say she is regular, yes.
