Holy crap, it's been a long time since I posted something. Things have been rather hectic. Final preparations have been made for my one week baseball excursion, I've been trying to spend as much time on my bicycles as possible, and with the new library open I've been partaking in some reading and listening.
First things first, the trip. It's going down a little something like this. One week from Monday we'll be going down to KC to visit the Negro League Museum and watch the Royals get stomped by the Indians. Wow, negro and indian in the same sentence. How uncomfortable. Tuesday it's on to St. Louis to visit the Cardinals Museum and see the home team in their new stadium against the Rockies. Then comes the long journey up to Chi-town for the World Champs against the (LA) Anaheim Angels. We'll stay two days there, but will not get to see the Cubs. Friday will have us visiting Milwaukee to see them take on the Mets. Finally, Saturday and Sunday we'll be in Minneapolis for some homer dome action. It's going to be one whirlwind of a trip. I really can't wait.
Now for the biking. I haven't made it out nearly enough. I have probably rode less than 100 miles so far this year, and that's really weak. I did get a taste of the mountain bike trails though. And, what a sweet taste it was. The candyman that is Denman's woods has me wanting more.
Finally, the library. It is so very nice in it's new location. I can make it over on a break and score music and books with great ease. The sci fi section isn't yet up to the level of Franklin, but it is pretty good. Now, if they'd hurry up and get the new John Varley book, all will be well.
