Noticeably absent is Leanne, Brad's wife. She couldn't run because her foot was still recovering from a stress fracture and a sick daughter needed her home that morning. Maybe next time she can join us, either running or for moral support!
So at long last, we all ended up back at the start/finish line. Brad first, then Jack, then after a while, me. Maybe my time would be better if I didn't stop to take the pictures, but then how boring would this blog entry be?

Now, stay here at this blog for another minute, and you can hear the piano part I'm talking about. Wonder why playlist.com uses a rehearsal practice recording for their web site. Oh well. You still get the essence of the piece.
I guess coming to my blog is now a good way to learn the tenor part to a beautiful piece of choral repertoire. Maybe one day we can all get together and sing it. Just the tenor part.

I have spent the past couple of days decorating a Christmas tree with a couple of fun girlfriends. The tree is part of the Providence St. Peter Foundation’s Christmas Forest. Each year, volunteer designers put together a roomful of trees which are viewed by the public for about a week, then are auctioned off at a gala dinner event. Designing and putting the tree together is such fun!
This year while decorating, my team (Leanne and Ellen) and I noticed several great snippets of conversation that made us giggle. They really are things that a person doesn’t hear every day. For example:
“Oh, there’s another box of Eiffel Towers!”
“I still have a Blue-Footed Boobie.”
“We were going to do the urologist tree.”
“It’s beautiful when you squint your eyes!”
I’m voting for the one with the giraffe!
Priceless quotes. It’s probably a good thing that some of these aren’t heard every day!
Okay, for those of you who are interested in such things, you’ll be fascinated to know that I am doing this blog post with the assistance of Windows Live Writer. I’m trying this first without pictures. If all is a go, I’ll try it with pics!

On wordpress, pictures have to be uploaded one at a time, although they can take a pretty large image so no need to change the file size. Hmmmm. So now here I am, testing out blogspot again.
Trying a few pictures now...
