It has been a while since we have posted anything, sorry about that. Nothing major to report, very quiet weekend. Allison has begun her training for the 3-Day in earnest. We walked about 7 miles on Saturday and about 4 miles on Sunday.
It was Tara’s Birthday on Saturday and we went there for Cake and Ice Cream, and some Homemade soda. Erik’s Dad Howard got them a Soda Maker from The Soda Club.
Before that we went to a clam cake and chowder dinner at Sacred Heart Church with my mom. Good clam cakes, can’t wait for the summer.
I got to go on a nice long motorcycle ride on Friday afternoon while it was beautiful out. Took the bike all the way to South Attleboro to pick up some comic books from Wild Time Comics. I’ve been hitting the gym at the Y with Erik a couple of days a week. Starting to get myself trained to run a little.
Bought a trunk rack for bikes this past weekend at the East Providence Cycle Bike show. There were some good deals there. I’m all set to get out and hit some trails, soon. Summer can’t come fast enough.
Well, it is Christmas time again. Last night Allison and I went to my sister Tara’s house for dinner and gift exchange with her and her husband Erik. My Grandfather Rick was there and so was my Uncle Jim. My sister Shelby and my mother and father also were in attendance. And Erik’s parents Bonnie and Howard also came.
We had a very fun night with lots of laughs and some fantastic presents that suited everyone’s interests. Like The Sex Life of Plants, a book that Tara received from Bonnie and Howard. That and another book called The Bastard’s name was Bristow. They were big hits.
eBay is a wonderful thing and can help you find all sorts of great gifts. Just ask Allison, she received a couple of vintage sixties Pyrex bowls with Amish People on them from her friend, Peg.
Last night Allison and I returned home and exchanged gifts with my parents. Then we came upstairs and exchanged our gifts together. Allison is all decked out with AB gear for the kitchen. Alton Brown, for those of you who are not on the Good Eats bandwagon yet. He’s a great entertainer and we met him.
Later this morning we are off to see the Allison’s parents and exchange gifts with them and enjoy the baking wonders that Allison slaved over yesterday. She made THREE PIES! That’s a lot of pies. I know, I wash the dishes around here. Anyway from us to you, Merry Christmas.
