Biking in the Tetons with Audrey and Joyce.

Here we are in our younger days biking in the Tetons with Audrey and Joyce.  After too long a hiatus, we’re back to biking.  It feels great!  As I recall, after Randy, Audrey and I rode through the Jenny Lake loop road, we had a big water fight.  I’ll bet Randy won. 

Happy 91st, Dad.

Dad 80th.jpg  Here’s Dad blowing out his 80th birthday candles.  Moments after this photo was taken, the candles all fused together into one huge flame.  Dad and Mom drove to Coeur d’ Alene to celebrate his 80th, and Dad and I rode our bikes to the lake to celebrate.  Along the route, he cussed me for pedaling too slowly for him.  “I can’t balance that well,” he said.  I hope he has the best birthday, ever, tomorrow, when he turns 91.

Happy Birthday, Allan. Beware of sharks!

nubble in morning.jpg  Happy Birthday to my brother Allan.  He’s afraid of sharks.  I’ve never taken a photo of a shark before (well, maybe in an aquarium tank), so  here’s a lighthouse near recent sightings of sharks for you, Allan.  Hope you have a shark-free day.

A quiet walk.

On my walk I saw this guy.
