Two weeks until Peter (my husband and best friend) and I depart for San Diego. I've done a dry run on packing and have no problem meeting the weight limit -- now if only I can find that spot where I put the bike computer and map clip (you know - the spot where I would be sure to find them).
Not getting much training done this week. My father passed away Thursday night, so we are in San Antonio for the funeral. He will be greatly missed by many, especially by my brother and mother who stood beside him during the last year and especially during the last difficult days when Alzheimer's fought for his body and soul. The staff at the Oaks at the Army Residence Center were wonderful during his year there, as were the hospice nurses who made his last days more comfortable. He will be with me all during the ride.
So, next post will include an address to send donations to NARFE's Alzheimer's research fund. I unabashedly ask that anyone who reads this send something, no matter how small, to help find a way to stop Alzheimer's disease before it truly becomes a public health crisis with the aging of us baby boomers!
