Getaway Day (Again!)

Today I will be toting the road bike up to Hartwell, Georgia. This weekend is the annual Lake Hartwell Campout for the Black Sheep Hash and because it’s not being held on LEAF weekend as it was last year, I will be returning. My plan is to ride Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and run the hash on Saturday without getting left alone at the end. (Short-time readers of this space should search the archives to read that story, it’s probably been six years now…)

Queen For A Day
Yesterday was all about the M6.

I spent two hours down in Morrow having the M6 get its 25k mile routine service done (it has over 27k miles already so it won’t be long before scheduling 30k service).

Upon eating a quick Chinese buffet lunch I did something to the M6 I’ve not done since banging her up back in February — I vacuumed and washed her. Funny, the “Jackmobile” obviously became a boy car, however the M6 is feeling more like a girl car to me. Of course you could question my sanity for cleaning the car up prior to driving it up to Hartwell where it will get dirty driving the dirt roads of Hartwell. Oh well.

Last night I had dinner at a restaurant in which I have not eaten in years. Feeling the call of Thai I had dinner at Mali in Virginia Highland, my has it grown in size since the last time I dined there. It was a wonderful dinner, and, it’s going to prove to be a good breakfast as I am eating leftovers for my breakfast today.

I know that I certainly do.

J-E-T-S Jets! Jets! Jets!
I’m bringing a portable TV with me tonight to see if I can catch a portion of the Jets v. Bills game. I’d tell you who I picked to win, but some of those cagy Yahoo! Pick’em Pool players may read this space and I don’t want to tip my hand.

There will be a blog tomorrow, assuming that I can get cell service at Oops’s cabin in the woods.

Until then, have a great day friends!

    All seems good with Debbie after her “real estate purchase” on yesterday’s ride home. She is slightly bruised and sore on the shoulder that took the brunt of the fall. I believe her pride was the most damaged.

    I was late starting my ride last night, so only managed 11 miles of mostly gravel.

    And it looks like Perry will be off the payroll on Sunday! He’s a sweet, quiet boy and we’re glad he’s going to get a job and be a part of a friends’ stable. Now, one to go!

    how many horses to do you have Steve?

    Went for a hike with JoAnna, Sal & the beagles last night. it was nice to get out in nature. The creek we cross is really low, never seen it like that, we need rain. My grass looks bad as well.

    Have fun at Hartwell – let me know how it is. It has seemed to get bigger & crazier every year.

    BTW – I’m thinking & hoping to go to FDR in Nov. I talked to Lisa, she wanted me to remind everyone that this isn’t an open hash outing, so don’t spread the word too much.

    I got my PP smacked for inviting you- very sweetly by Lisa and fairly bluntly by Bill.

    The equine children are “soon to be leaving” Perry, “hope to send away on lease” Gus, my former nemesis during my lessons Mac, and Debbie’s forever horse Phinney.

    Getting down to 2, one of which I could ride (Phinney) would be nice. Mac isn’t a bad horse, just not a beginners horse.

  4. Huh, I sent the info to Barb too, with no ramifications. I thought that they had been on the list in the past. My attendance is tentative as I have agreed to run a r*ce that weekend; so you and Allan can take my spot.

    Need to figure out why I am no longer getting email when Steve comments.

  5. steve says:

    You could call that a blessing in disguise!!

  6. Barb says:

    Paulie- I didn’t use the email you forward to me, I used Steve’s.
    that’s why he’s in trouble with Bill.

    run a race???? what the hell?

  7. Ah, I see.

    Yes, it’s complicated. Trying to get my running legs back since I know I won’t cycle in cold. Race is commitment and motivation.
