To Cool For School

When you’re this cool the sun shines on you 24 hours a day. What a ham! Only if I could be half as cool as my daughter.

Waving to her fans
Not happy about her contract with Universal
Who cares about the contract...

Thank God for Clown Dog

Paige got this bad virus and the doctor put her on a DeVilbiss. Paige has a hard enough time sitting still little alone trying to put this mask on her for 10 minutes. Thank God for clown dog. Throw some rabbit ears on him and Paige is entertained. Only one more day of treatments…

Tomorrow The SSP Will Be Alive

Tomorrow I will have the BB, tires, and chain, which will complete the build. This is going to turn out to be a sweet little single speed. Lyn is pretty excited about the bike. I cannot wait to be riding with girls on single speeds. Watch out boys…the girls are moving in!
Please excuse my unorganized bench. It’s usually does not look this bad.

Doctor…I think I’m getting a pulse
It will be alive tomorrow!

Girls on Single Speeds

They have been building a new trail in the back yard. The Forest Service hired a professional trail building company to do the work. It took 5 or 6 guys about 4 weeks to complete the trail. All I can say is WOW!!!!! I have ridden trails all of the US and this one ranks up there with some of the best. This is going to be one of those trails a lot of people could possible get hurt on. It’s not technical but it’s extremely fast and is like a giant BMX track that goes down hill. Absolutely amazing! I was going to take some photos today but I could not get myself to stop.

Yesterday Lyn and her girlfriends went out for a ride. Lyn and another girl she rides with have been talking about putting together single speeds. Well…Saturday Lyn’s friend showed up for the ride on her newly built single speed. Girls on single speeds…you have got to love it. Lyn road it for a little bit and liked it. Below is a photo of her old Ritchey starting the conversion process. I only need a few small things and she will be good to go.

Paiges Best Friend "The Russ Man"

One of my friends called Russell "Clown Dog". The nickname was perfect! Look at him... how can you not love Russell? Paige and Russell hang together all the time. If Paige is not happy all we have to do is bring the Clown Dog into the room and she starts smiling. I’ll have to get a saddle made for him so she can ride him.

Reaching For The Camera

Paige loves the camera. Anytime we put the camera or video recorder on her she starts smiling and showing off. Social butterfly??? If so it's because of her mommy, and that means we will have our hands full.

Paige Loves Her Cup

Paige loves to drink out of her cup. She is crazy when it comes to dinnertime. There is nothing she will not eat. As you can see she is far from malnourished. The unstoppable eater!

Another Warm Day In NC

This is the third day it’s been 70 plus degrees. It’s amazing how fast the flowers and trees start blooming. Our plum tree in the back yard this morning had a few little buds and by this afternoon at about 6pm it was a total different tree. Paige really enjoyed the pretty pink flowers on the tree.

Paige Hanging In The Hammock

Paige loves swinging in the hammock on warm sunny days.

What's in your trunk?????

Last weekend Lyn had a continuing education class on Sunday in Johnson City so we decided to head over Saturday morning to hang out with friends and family. We dropped Paige off with Lyn’s mom Saturday morning and headed to the salon for some tender loving care. Lyn got a facial and I got an hour massage. It was awesome! So after the pampering I hocked up with some friends and did a mountain bike ride at Buffalo Mountain. Lyn went with her mother and did some shopping for Paige. This is where it gets funny. For those of you that know Lyn, she sometimes can be klutzy. Well I think this tops all of here moves. She is in a store doing some shopping, which I might add is not her favorite thing to do, and leans back on this ottoman. Well…she leans back a little to far and over she goes into a clothing rack. I don’t know about you but I have never fallen on a clothes rack before, but after seeing the mark it left on Lyn I hope I never do. Check out the photo below and remember…shopping can be dangerous too.
