Emma learns to ride

We really needed to settle into the Denver area for a while. There is so much to be done. I picked up my new phone today from FedEx, then spent a couple of hours trying to get my Mac Powerbook serviced. I finally settled on a specialist in Denver who will put in a new 100 gb drive and have it back to me by the end of the week.


While I was gone, Bill (The Health Chic’s other half), took Emma’s training wheels off and started teaching her to ride her bike, while Eleanor supervised. It went well, and now Emma is able to ride in a straight line all by herself! The campground is an ideal place to practice, since there’s no traffic, flat smooth paved roads, and lots of room.

In the afternoon I had a conference call, which I usually take outside so I can pace around while I talk. Unfortunately, we got a rare sprinkling of rain right around then, so I spent most of the conversation ducking between trees for shelter. I could have gone in the trailer but when I’m concentrating on a call I just can’t sit still — and besides, Eleanor and Emma were in there making noise. Such are the compromises of working in a trailer with family.

This evening we went to the home of our friends Forrest and Patrice for dinner. Forrest draws the cartoon for the magazine each quarter, in addition to occasionally contributing articles. We solved all the problems of the world in one evening, so if anyone needs to know the way to world peace, rejuvenating the WBCCI, or inexpensive electric power from cold fusion, just let me know.

    Emma is growing up so fast! Great job, Emma! (And Eleanor and Rich! & Sometimes it is easier for them to learn with another adult supervising. ….KIDS!!!!) 🙂

    Congratulations, Emma.
    We will have to all go riding our bikes at the Florida State rally next year, and no one will have to be left behind!
    Rich, can I bake brownies using Cold Fusion?
