Everyone is sick in this office! HA   5 comments

For those of you who don’t know, I’m somewhat of an animal lover, or to put it another way…I am a lover of animals.  Make sense?   Good.  Well, anyway….driving to work this morning, with the sun rising and shining through the smog on the highway, brightening everyone’s otherwise miserable lives while they trudge to their offices and cubicles to collect paltry salaries barely above minimum wage, I saw something amazing that made me stop my car on an entry ramp to a major highway in the middle of traffic all worth it….a Bald Eagle soaring high slowly gliding across the sky…kinda neat how I rhymed that part there.

Well, I spent many hours glued to my computer over the spring and summer this year watching the bald eagle project or whatever it was called online, it was some webcam of a nest of eagle parents and their eaglets, I got to watch countless hours of feeding and fledging.  I have never before seen one in the wild, free as a bird, and today well….I’m teary just writing about it.

So I hope you can all appreciate nature today, maybe you too can catch a glimpse of these beautiful flying swans in the sky, but they’re not swans at all, they’re eagles.  Bald.  But not really.

Here’s one now…

look at me i'm flying

It happened one Sunday afternoon…   Leave a comment

I feel like I just won the lottery, again!

FIRST, I got into that bike race in Italy….but now, compared to what just happened, going to Italy might as well be like a trip to the dentist…I just had my FIRST BELGIAN WAFFLE!!!  And in was fantastic.  Now you all won’t have to suffer through any more of my bemoaning these delightful, albeit elusive (to me at least) treats from across the way.

Yes, indeed, this waffle was covered in chocolate, strawberries, double-secret whipped cream, and of course, maple syrupy goodness.

We even had creeps to boot.  Jambon, with cheese and egg.  Mmm mmm, good.  I felt like a heifer by the time we left, thankfully I went biking beforehand.  Truthfully, we should have biked TO waffle heaven in order to maximize our calorie output/intake ratio.

Here’s a pic of how I want to be remembered:
