Lodi does Seattle and Portland and NorCal!!

Well, Lodi finally made it in to Seattle area. East Hill, Mr. East Hill Lodi and I met for breakfast this morning. Mr and Mrs East Hill are now off to the Puyallup Fair and Lodi is off to scoot about Seattle.

I only have this one picture (could have sworn I had taken at least a few, but I guess not). And of course it is the one pic I was making a funny face in. Later East Hill should be able to chime in and post her pics (she took more than anybody).

Lodi (left) and KT (right)


For those of you who forgot or lost the link, here is Lodi's travel blog.

I'm not sure, but I think it may be sooner. He's leaving here tomorrow and heading down that way. Unless he's making more stops between here and there (which is quite possible, I don't know his itinerary), then he'll probably be there sooner than that.

Well, by the time we got to Puyallup the traffic was soooo backed up we decided to go early tomorrow instead! So, here's my contribution:

We met at famous Lil John's restaurant, in Bellevue, WA, in the shadow of the Temple:



We spotted these two outside--the place was packed!



The two Chrises (hmmm, don't know about that spelling...)



KT and Lodi AND me ! :



Gotta get Mr. East Hill in there too!



We had a great time meeting these two gentlemen--those of you in the lineup to meet Lodi will undoubtedly enjoy the experience . It was nice finally meeting up with KT, too!

Unfortunately, CliftonGK1 was not able to join us--perhaps next time...

I deliberated posting it, and then thought that you might enjoy seeing it .

We almost got stuck going in--we made the turn into the Temple's street and didn't realise that we were going to be trapped in there by the steady stream of traffic!

We did mention that there were hills, right ? You weren't even in one of the steeper bits, either .

I was thinking we could get spray tans and zucinni facials, and then hold hands on the beach while the sun goes down. But that's just me. Plus I hear there's this cool pizza place in the Castro that is to die for!!!

edit: Thanks East Hill!! I very much appreciated it. I love pictures of the temples.

Um Jon? You talking about your girlfriend or Lodi?

I have an idea!! How about Chinatown? And then we can take him to Broadway or your beloved Castro. Show him what the Citay is really all about!!

And there is no way I'm taking him to the zoo. Our zoo isn't going to impress him after his visit with April.

Oh and Lodi? I requested and got Saturday off!

I'm glad you were able to meet my sweet brother. I just wish that I can finally see him in person as well.

And East Hill? It's nice to finally place a face with your name (and to see Mr. East Hill) Did you get a shot of the four of you together?

Unfortunately, no...it was hard enough roping Mr. East Hill into the one photo. I don't think he would have stood still long enough to get all four of us in .

No, darn it! Remember, KT's been off the bike for a while due to his bad back. I did spot Lodi's MTB on the back of his vehicle but did not get a photo of it...not quick enough for my husband's driving .

I hurt it somehow about a month ago and have been off the bike. I'm in Physical Therapy now to try to figure out what it is and get back on the bike. I think it is a combination of bad ergonomics at work and the switch to those new handlebars.

That's too bad. Hope it gets better soon! I'm surprised the new handlebars are causing more back pain... isn't that the sort of thing they're supposed to relieve?

it's funny because the bars "felt" great...I think they were just a catalyst and the bad work posture is the real culprit. At least after talking with PT, that's what I think. I'm going to see a "real expert" bike fit guy who is also a PT (so ins. will pay for it. ) who will help me sort it out properly. Hopefully I'll be back on in a week or two.
