Yes, Brooks & Dunn, "We're Gonna Miss You When You're Gone". That song made me cry, as did "Neon Moon" and my most favorite "Believe". Other than that, the show was very good and it's so hard to hear them say goodbye. Their music has been a big part of the last 20 years of my life.

I've got to give it to cyclists who pedal to work. It takes some fearlessness in this city. I experienced that today with my first 14-mile (round trip) sidewalk ride to work. In addition to maneuvering around rough sidewalks and inattentive drivers I learned:
Thought is required for clothing and shoes that transition from riding to the workplace
I need to allow a full hour to make it to my office on time
A pant leg flapping in the wind will invariably end up in the chain!

My neice, Amy, ran in the River Run and I met up with her afterwards at the Vagabond. Funny girl, drinking beer after a run. Then mom showed up and we walked around the festival taking in the music, art and a funnel cake. As if funnel cake wasn't enough, I also met up with Laurie and her husband at the food court for roasted corn and a corn dog.

Tonight's golf game was at Echo Hills. It's sad to me to think in a couple of months the course will be replaced with a big box store. It's a narrow course and we experienced many guys crossing over to play off of our fairway. It's all good but I had to pause when I saw a turtle crossing our path. That's something I haven't seen before. He hissed at me and went about his way. The course will be open for play until July 5th.

I've managed to ride Hoolie around on my lunch hour a couple days each week. Today, I tried out a new lunch destination: a walk up Bierock stand in Riverside. It's across from the Riverside Perk coffee shop. They have a few different varieties of bierocks but I went with the beef and cheese. It was pretty good. There's outdoor seating and soon they will be adding Hawaiian Ice and ice cream to their menu.
