Hi! I'm Roxie and I'll be your tour guide today
I'll be entertaining a couple of members of Bick's family for most of the day today. They are coming into Where-The-West-Begins to attend a university tour and I've offered to meet for them for lunch and then conduct a city tour later in the day. Then we are all going to dinner with Bick meeting us. I've never met these people - it's Bick's first cousin's wife and daughter. Bick spent the first ten years living a few houses away from his cousins. One is a year older than Bick and one is a year younger and so the three of them ran in a pack as children. More like brothers than cousins - no matter whose house they were at, if one got a spanking, they all got a spanking - to hear Bick tell it. I've never met this branch of the family (this is the fancy, now rich, branch) and I'm a little nervous about being "on" for most of the day. Oh, well. I've spoken to the wife while making arrangements and she seemed very nice, so it will all be fine. Bick is very appreciative of me making the effort.
Sandy (who came over for dinner again last night!) will be joining them/us for the day, so that will be nice. I just wish I'd slept better last night. Awake at 3:30. So it's off to the yoga room for a little stretchy stretchy and some meditation.
Doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get in a workout at lunch. Darn it. I was hoping to break the 100 mile mark this week!
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Show what you know.
