Biking along the Rillito River

Two or three weeks ago, Mark was working at a campground and he pulled into an empty lot across the street from the campground to let Tucson do her business.  She started wandering out into the desert and he followed her.  Something caught his eye so he walked over to see what it was and found a recumbent tricycle in pretty good condition lying out there.  It needed some repairs to the seat covers, both the seat and the seat back, but other than that, it was usable.  He brought it home and we fixed it up.  Ever since then, he’s been wanting to go on a bike ride with me.

Guest Blog: “Me” aka Mark Fuller

Hey, everbody!!  It’s Me!!!

Denise is feeling a bit overwhelmed and asked if I could do her blog for her tonight.  She wanted to write it last night, but the excitement of our boat ride caused her to run out of steam, even before she had time to finish editing all the pictures she took from our excursion.

Going for a Sunday drive

This morning we went to the Friends church in Sturgeon Bay that we had gone to whenever we had a chance last summer.  This is the church where The Old Rugged Cross was first performed at a revival meeting.  They have a monument to that effect beside the church building. Continue reading
