Somehow it's the end of September…

Wow. It's been a while. Quick recap.

June brought us to St. Maarten!! What a great trip!! It truly was paradise!

July brought a family vacation to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. And Moka learned to swim!

August brought Hurricane Irene and a washed out friend vacation to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We went, instead, back to Deep Creek Lake. All dogs had a great time. So did their humans.

September brought a very quiet house. DD went off to college after a year at Northern VA Community College last year. She is now a sophomore at VCU in Richmond, a Sorority girl and loving every minute. Her brother is a "Super Senior" also at VCU. We are hoping he will graduate in May. (5 years is our max for tuition payments!)

SO it's just us and the dog… and cats.

September 24th, I went with 7 friends to ride the Rappahanock River Ride yet again. In the rain, yet again! It was a blast! We rode in a double paceline for the entire 63 miles and finished in just over 4 hours. Fastest Metric Century I have ever done! Lots of great food, great laughs and great views!
