I tried to post this several times on Sunday, but Blogger was being a bother, but here is our weekend in a nutshell.
We were up and at ‘em early yesterday. We were at the start of the Duncan Dehydrator before 8AM. It was amazing how many bicyclists were there to ride in the 100+ temps. Jesse took pictures. At one point, she said, "I just got a photo of the racers including that guy with the USMC and the Army guy next to him." I turned to Toby and said, "I bet she takes up biking next." If you know Jesse, you will know that was a joke – she was just yanking our strings. We cheered Toby off along with a few of Jesse’s coworkers who were also entered in the ride.
Jesse and I headed to the City after seeing the start of the bike ride/race. About the time we got to OK City, Toby called to say that he had finished the 27 miles, which is all he signed up for. He said it was hot, but fun, not to taxing, and he met some guys from Lawton who bike every Saturday on the Base and through the wild life refuge. Now that sounds more fun – maybe next fall or winter.
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers was great. The dancing and music were very professional. We had quite a large group of young ladies from our fellowship who attended the musical. They were all dressed up for the play – looking lovely and ladylike. Many of these young ladies are my art students, so it is fun to see them all dressed up. After the play, several of us went to Spaghetti Warehouse in Bricktown. We stuffed ourselves and then had to take a walk on the river. The walk was nice, but even at 7PM, it was hot in OK City. I was glad to get in the air conditioned car and head home.
