On July 5th we had to put our pet cat, Jessie, to
sleep. Jessie had been a part of Grace's and my life
since 1984. She shared many of our life's moments
and was a very special friend to Grace & I. She was
the last of the original four we had when we were
first married. Although the smallest, she was Miss
Attitude and always had something to say. We miss
her very much as do her furry brothers and sisters.

Ironman experience, I decided it was time to

next next month's newsletter, I will have it fully

two well packed bicycles at one of our local Food
Lion grocery stores. They were enjoying a little off-
saddle time and having lunch. Thinking they were on
a several day jaunt, I said hello and inquired where
they had traveled from and where they were
heading. I was expecting to hear a trip across
Virginia or the Outer Banks.
amazement, they had departed San Francisco in
early May and were 77 days into a 4 month ride!!!
After a 1/2 hour conversation in which I realized they
intended to visit the area for a day or two, I invited
them to spend the night at the Cedars. They
The next day at breakfast, we
spent most of the morning discussing their
adventures. As it turned out, on a previous trip,
they had ridden from London to New
Zealand. They are looking forward to their ride
across China in 2007.
