Back together again

Finally, I get to pick up Bonnie and Finn this morning. Their trip was extended by a couple of days because Finn was sick. We've been getting rain since Tuesday night so my training has been spent on the trainer watching old triathlons, and Iditarods. The girls like the dog sled races almost as much as I do.

Today we were supposed to spend Thanksgiving with some good friends that host a Thanksgiving bash every year. Anywhere from 40 to 60 friends and family descend on their Palm Springs home to celebrate life. We all sit down together to eat dinner. After eating we all mingle and linger throughout the house and yard. Before you know it guitars, and drums are coming out. Time for the entertainment. It's a blast. It would have been a cool first Thanksgiving for Finn. I'm just thankful to be picking up Bonnie and Finn today. It will be good to spend Thanksgiving with just the family. Turkey, football, a little spinning this morning and each other...what more could a guy ask for?

Ride on!
