chillen's got shoes! Put on your shoes and we're gonna dance all over God's heaven. Heaven. When we get to heaven gonna put on our shoes and d-a-n-c-e!! PROGRESS. They've got shoes AND faces and happy little 'pennant-flags.' Guess where the idea for pennant flags came from???
In the three weeks that we've been up here I have now ridden 310.4 miles!! YIPPEE!! Setting a good pace of 100 miles per week. We'll see if I can keep that momentum as the summer continues to unfold. The next piece of the agenda is to head to Ohio for a couple of days. I need to squeeze those babeez of ours and listen to what WonderBoy has been up to................ So our bikes will be safely stowed away, until our return.
Every pebble, a prayer.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but measured on what takes your breath away...... now who said that??
There are so many breath-taking vistas up here, that it becomes typcial to see beauty in every direction. How can I bottle it up and savor for other seasons??

pavilion on the shore, we hopped into our pick-em-up truck and rambled down to Peninsula State Park for this year's newest original AFT show entitled, "Cheeseheads, the Musical." The title alone is enough to make you smile! We've gone to their new shows every season, but we both put this one very high atop our list of favorites --moving it in front of "Packer Fans from Outer Space" and even our perennially favorite, "Men on Ice." This song & dance extravaganza was perfectly cast, had an uplifting story and ensured leaping from our seats with proper 'cheese-head' cheering, when directed from the stage. Two thumbs up. No, FOUR thumbs up.
We chose the early show, so as not to miss the sunset. We got back to our pier just in time to see one lone sailboat trolling back and forth across the bay. Cue the sunset music. Last night's edition featured the peeking rays of sun slicing thru the dark cloud bank. Glimmering reflection, singular orange band of color: nice & tranquil.

Sights along my Wednesday bike tour. Today I rode for over 33 miles -- bringing my total to a nice round 300.3 miles in just under three weeks. The biggest news of my cycling career: today, for the very first time, ever, drumroll please: I passed two cyclists going up a long, gradual and then steep, steep hill heading out of our village! My adrenaline surge was the biggest thrill of my riding career. There are two people on this peninsula, who ride even SLOWER than I do. Congratulations, to me!!
Door County, while curently quite famous for it's travel/tourist industry and it's amazing support of the arts was originally an agricultural bastion, noted for it's cherry orchards and all the fixin's that emerge from cherries. The rolling hills are dotted with working farms, many of which sport their '100 Year' placard with pride.

These daisies are literally growing in the actual gravel along side the road, this whole county is in bloom today. I've long admired daisies for their simplicity and sincerity. To watch them grow from gravel is indeed amazing to consider. Just how is that possible?? These were growing at the foot of the street sign: "Sunnyside Lane." Fitting. Very fitting. Gotta love daisies that grow in the gravel of Sunnyside Lane!
