But my new bicycle arrived last Wednesday, and we managed to get out to play over the weekend - old folks or not. The weather and trails were nicely accommodating.

It's been fun and a reminder of what a noob I am at mountain biking. When I justified the acquisition of a new bicycle to Magnum, he was so sold on the idea that he got one too. So there we were in the woods, working on our skills. As expected, mountain biking is like math. You don't learn it by watching someone else do it.
Now to shift to some sobering news, a friend of mine had a bad reaction to some medication. Long story short, she's been in a coma for over a week.
Tiffany is about 40 years old and energetic, smart, charitable, and adventurous. She's a science teacher at a local high school. It was Tiffany who talked me into being a (mostly... sometimes...) vegetarian. She recently hiked many miles over several days to some ancient ruins - "NOT Machu Picchu. You can ride a BUS to Machu Picchu!" - in Peru.
It's hard for me to picture her in her current state as she is typically smiling and bustling with energy and ideas.
But she does seem to be making slow progress, so there's that.
