Henri’s lyrics:

Henri loves to sing and I love to hear his versions of the lyrics! Yesterday, he sang “Rain, rain, go away” as follows:

Raining
Go away
Come and get it
Another hi!

Lovely day for butterflies! At Lake Katherine.

Christine, being totally casual about the fact that she has a monarch butterfly resting on her arm. #thishappensallthetime

Please help give me incentive to finish this ride and donate to a great cause in my mom’s name. One cent a mile would be about a $35 donation, if (when) I make it to Florida. Thanks so much, Gary

My dad is biking across the country in a tribute to his mother, who died of Scleroderma. He’s taking donations in her honor.
