I wish I could replace all the trees.

Last year we realized that we would soon be losing the trees that line our beautiful street. Unfortunately, as in many of the neighborhoods most of the trees on our block are ash trees. It saddens me to watch the trees die. Pat and I decided to plant trees in our yard to help with the replacement of the tree canopy. This summer the Rivermet Gang presented us with a gift to help us with the purchase of the trees as a memorial to my mother, Lucy McDonald, who passed away in June. With the help of the Rivermet Gang we purchased two Cleveland Pear trees for the front yard and a Thornless Hawthorn for the back yard.
When I look at the trees I am not only reminded of my mother, but I am touched by the kindness of our precious friends. We are so blessed to have them in our lives.

As we have enjoyed the warm weather the last couple of days, today reminds me it is still April. Here are some pictures I took before the possible frost tonight.

Calhoun Street

When this blog was started we agreed not to make political statements. But I can not let the vote by city council allowing the changes to Calhoun St. go by without comment.

Once again the views of the majority are disregarded. It seems its more important that city traffic planners get their way than a park like street scape be maintained. Do I smell Quid pro Que. I only hope that the 2nd district gets some new sidewalks.

This is another example of why more and more people are disenfranchised.

Critical Mass July 2009

I just want to thank everyone who helped when I fell during the ride last night. The morning I am scraped, bruised and swollen, but fortunately I am fine. The worst part was not being able to finish the ride. We look forward to the ride every month and last nights ride was really a nice pace. Once again, thank you.

At The Races

We had great fun Saturday at Parkview Cycling Festival. Marsha's son Brian was racing in the corporate race for Tower Bank so we went to cheer him on.

A couple of teams dropped out so the Rivermet Gang was asked to Race.

Just relaxing and watching the pros race.
