6/14/1989 - the 15th Anniversary

I posted about this last year - 6/14/89 being my first day in the working world. It's been 15 years. Wow.

Next week I am lucky enough to start a two-week vacation. I'm off work from 6/19/04 (Saturday) until 7/6/04 (the Tuesday I return). This is the longest vacation I've had since 1993, and I am really, really excited about it. More posting then, I'm sure.

The remainder of this week is dedicated to final preparations for Tour de Cure, a charity event to raise money to fight diabetes, which is Saturday. I'm wimping out and doing the 50 miles - not in shape enough to do the hundred, I don't believe. Still, that'll be a challenge. But it should be cool that day - high of 77. If only we can hold off the rain. Last year it was in the 90s.

Still time to donate (mom, here's the link).

(And many, many lots of thanks to Teresa, Mike, Harvey, Charles, and Victor.

Enjoy your ride. Last Saturday I went to Wisconsin and did the Horribly Hilly Hundreds ride, Only 100k for me thank you very much. Being a Chicago flat-lander I can only say that it was both hilly and horrible. While going up one particularly long, steep climb a man behind me yelled, "How much farther to the top?". The bitter reply from a woman ahead of me was, "Top? There is no top!" This was accompanied by a chorus of groans from all who heard the exchange. By some miracle I finished that ride and you can finish your ride too.

Wow - a 2 week vacation! Have a terrific time. And have a great ride! I wish I could've donated more, but with blogless husband out of work, I have to be a bit careful.

I know St. Louis weather and the hills, very well. If it is in the high 70's, what a terrific day for a ride! Anyway, have a great time and I can't wait to hear how it goes.
