Fixing a customer's Monument Cycles MTB...especially after finding out the derailleur hanger I fixed probably wouldn't be available in the future.

Just sent out "thank you" notes to my MS150 donors and, in the process, realized that I've now logged over 1,000 miles on that one ride. Kinda nice, since it's a family cause.

Ninesies make me really happy.

They are like elevensies except they start earlier and often run later.

A warm hug from a work friend. It felt doubly good because we were both so frazzled.

Still smiling from the 1st date with a guy last night, and still smiling from my way to fast commute in this morning - it's gorgeous outside!

Wade and I have worked on hitting baseballs since he was about 3. He loves to bat.

It was very gratifying this week at practice to sit back and watch the coach compliment his swing and have the other boys watch Wade bat, so they could see how to step into the ball, rotate the hips, etc.

This is first year of coach pitch baseball, all first graders from his school on the team.

I went to check the dog's food and water bowls prior to putting her in the crate for the day. (BTW, we have a doggie door, the crate is in front of it, so she can get out of her crate and into the backyard at will.) Found them to be full.

Our boys, ages 6 and 3, had already filled them! They are starting to take more ownership of Sparky everyday, which is it should be.

On a side note, I called Sparky into the room when waking up the six year old. She licked him awake and then the two of them snuggled up and cuddled for a few minutes. Again, this is how it should be.

Also, last night before bed, I got to watch the three year old and the dog waddle/trot into the kitchen to get dog bones. The three year old loves to give Sparky treats, and ask her to sit, lay down etc. Again, this is how it should be.

It has taken two years, but the dog and the boys are really bonding. She looks at me as the alpha still, but they are forming really great bonds, something I was not sure was going to happen at first.

It will happen when I leave work today for my first cyclocommute home this year.

Yes I know it's mid April, but I live in New Hampshire, moved here from Texas, and it has too darn cold!!

(P.S., the ride into work as 34F, but going home will be about 75F)

I went to the brewpub last night with my Dad to celebrate his 61st birthday. Had a nice dinner (and a few mugs) with my Mom and wife. His gift was a really cool brass bell for his Rivendell that tones for a very long time.

Now I'm off to work and will have to work through the weekend swapping the store over from Winter to Summer stock.

The C & V forum has gotten to see photos of the snow bank alongside Pastor Bob's driveway. Let's just say that the amount of snow he has piled up still is AWESOME.
