It's raining!














Finally, a real rain in central Arkansas!


Today is my niece Shannon's birthday! Happy birthday Shannon! We're all going to Bryant tonight to eat Mexican food at TaMolly's. it's a tradation to go there on Sha-Sha's birthday for several years now. Always a lot of fun. We even have our own room and they sing and make her wear a sombraro! A velvet one!

I went to a after work spin class yesterday then out to the river to ride after that! It was great! I spinned for 45 minutes then rode 17 miles at 21 mph! I think I'll go to the spin classes more often before my shorter rides because I was warmed up as I started my regular ride.

I saw a good Samaritan yesterday on my way home from riding. The heat was about 100 degrees and the heat index was 107 and at the end of the 630 loop was an elderly man with a broke down car and one of our doctors was out there helping him. Now that my friends is care, love and hope! I sent a email to Dr. Taylor to let her know but I have no idea who it was.

You know my nephew Jim who moved to TX. Well he's a huge TX Rangers fan and they have lost 12 of the last 13 games. Jim wants to convert to Astro's fan. I'm thinking my nephew Ryan is busting a gut laughing at Jim. We're all like, Ok Jim, enough of the Ranger stuff on your blog! Serious thought, it's always good to have someone to cheer on! But for some reason i keep picturing Jim as Charile Brown when I think of him and the Rangers... Oh Good Grief Charlie Brown!

I'm doing an over night trip to Jonesboro Friday night with Rance and we will ride early Saturday morning. I can't wait to return to an area where I rode during the tour! I'm planning to shoot a lot of photos since I didn't when I went through. We're going to ride a metyric century which is 62 miles. Or around that...

By the way there is a ride coming up on Oct 15th. Here's information. I'm going to ride it. You ought to as well!

Nice site George..... I miss central Arkansas.... I spent 9 months as a staff pastor at the first church of the nazarene in little rock. I loved it, but honestly, I was a square peg in a round hole... I just didn't fit it. The people in your part of the country are just a hoot though..... I gotta get back and visit.
