I can’t believe it’s the dead middle of the summer.  I’ve been trying to jam as much into it as possible, and I’ve done a good job of it: there’s been brunches, two weddings, Comfest, and a two-day reunion with my high school classmates.

Still to come will be  a three-day to Pittsburgh and Kennywood, a white-water rafting trip in August, a trip to Columbus, and hopefully, my full vacation with Charlie to Marietta, too (side, check out this article).

I  finally got the bike out of the barn so that we could ride up to the park to watch fireworks. And since I had the rack on the car, K and I also finally got to our bike trip down the Bike & Hike Trail. It had been nearly a year since I’d been out on the bike, so of course, there needed to be some re-acclimation to the correct posture to keep the feeling in my derriere, but after a while, I went numb anyway, so it didn’t really matter.

We stopped along our route, and K and I both posed for a picture at Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
