Our daughter returned home today after 5-1/2 mos. in the Republic of Georgia, teaching English as a second language. She, c_gallagh & I danced around one another in the kitchen, cooking dinner, cleaning dishes, putting stuff away. It was seamless and gratifying and very fulfilling.
After the grilled apricots with chocolate sauce I logged onto BF... and I realized what I love about this sub-forum: We can form sentences, we use (mostly) correct grammar and punctuation; our every third word isn't, like, like; we can connect our bike experiences to our life experiences; we're not shy about admitting our weaknesses, and we're very tolerant.
I haven't been posting much in the last few months because I've been trying to stay in real estate and training and racing. I decided to make BF one of my "go-to" places and I've been already highly rewarded.
I appreciate all of you and your input and your willingness to share with the rest of us in this place. Thank you.
