My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Double Trouble

Tomorrow is our Century Ride = 100 mile bike ride around St. George! We hopped on the tandem today and rode 30 miles. People often will call out to us on our bike: hey cool bike. wow, mom that bike has two people on it. Often we hear: hey, she's not pedaling in the back. (Really, I am). Today we passed someone and they said: oh double trouble. That was a new one and we laughed. We laugh a lot on our bike. Its an adventure that I love and find myself being so grateful that health allows us to enjoy this experience together. (We'll see if we still feel that way tomorrow afternoon)
