Random 5 Friday 08/16/13

Back at it for Random 5 Fridays.  I missed last week due to travel, and the persistent plague.  Here is this week's installment.

1.  Long road trips are easier with older kids, and sharing driving between the adults.  The portable DVD player helps too.

2.  The Monkeys have discovered they can shoot spitballs with long plastic glow-stick storage tubes.  This is not endearing them to me...

3.  I hope to be back on the bike at least by next week, so that I can get a few miles and rides in before I head off to Wichita Falls for the Hotter 'N Hell Hundred ride.  I'm only planning on the 100K ride, or about 64mi, and not the imperial century of 100 mi.

4.  The dog rescue I volunteer with, TIRR, has several nice events upcoming.  One is even local to me, so I hope I will be free to assist them.  We are also planning another woodcutting expedition for fall, once the weather cools off.

5.  The Perseid Meteor shower was early this week.  Did you get out to see any falling stars?


  1. Guess what? Twenty years ago, my husband went and did the Hotter N Hell 100 bike race. That evening, he came back to his freshman college dorm room, during welcome week, to have his roommate talk him into going out to hear a band play. While waiting in line to get in to the club (which he never would get in - they would reach maximum capacity), he met me. :-)

    Hope you have a great bike race!

  2. oh, no i missed the meteor shower. oh pooh. i guess i was asleep.

    i love when folks give me links to check out. thanks. i will definitely stop by. hope you are well. enjoy your weekend. ( :

  3. Yes! I saw some falling stars! Magnificent! :)

  4. No, I missed the stars falling. I'll let you youngsters go for that awful sounding bike ride.

  5. I hope to be riding my bike soon again, but I couldn't go 100 or even 64 miles--yet!

    I missed the stars. I should have made an effort, but I went to sleep.

    Spit balls--ewwww. I remember my brother making those when we were little. :-)

  6. I'm out like a light early so the only shower I see is the one I hit in the bathroom!....:)JP

  7. I was born in Wichita Falls. That's all I got. :)

  8. A bike race... that's too long! I'd fall off exhausted.

    Now, who gave those monkeys the glow stick storage tubes in the first place... just asking? hehe

    Hope your weekend is super fun and there's not a spitball in sight.
