The family completed the south loop at Billy's Bridge today, all 4km. Some video evidence provided by the team effort of Elias and Dad.
Nearly four years ago, February 2009, I spent a few days in London for a work trip. While not engaged in work matters I wandered the city and captured some video footage. Mind you, the camera operator, me, used the zoom function too much, so, as they say, sort of, mind the motion sickness. The final clip, at the eight minute mark, of certain bicyclists near Trafalgar Square, made my experience, because I wished to see a critical mass ride. If only I borrowed a bike and joined the ride.
Elias gives the holiday news about Dia de los Muertos, art class, and a run down of trick-or-treating activities.
It's a cloudy fall morning. The kind of morning where you want to be in a blanket, with a warm beverage and read all day. Not in the cards for me, but I did come back home after dropping the kids off at school to make my own lunch for the day, and to put my contacts in (neglected on account of the mad rush to leave the house.) Reflecting on the first half hour of the day, I am smiling as the kids were concerned when I told them I was driving without my contacts. I assured them that I could see just fine, it was the details that were a little fuzzy.
Still thinking about the following conversation, overheard while voting.
Voter Volunteer: Don't you want a "I Voted" sticker? You can get free things in town.
Voter: No. I don't want anything free. There are too many people without jobs.
This video, taken in April 2011, show Elias, Randy, and Karis on the Dollar Mountain ski slopes. Bennett, who also put on skis to go up and down Quarter Dollar, is interviewed (but no footage of her on skis, sadly).
