5:30 comes early...

I woke up at 6:00 to leave by 6:30 to be in Wake Forest by 7:00. We did a 60-mile ride today.

Joe and I stopped at Applebee's on the way home and had lunch. I had an Asian wrap, that was killer, reminiscent of the Lettuce Wraps at Chili's.

Robert came over late in the afternoon, and we went to Vertigo's for dinner. Just as we pulled up, who should be walking on the sidewalk, right at the door, entering Vertigo's? Jay and Chuck on a date! We were the only 4 people in the restaurant. Jay invited us to sit with them, but I said, "Absolutely not."

I said to the lady seating us, "We want to be on the opposite side of the restaurant from these people." She said, "Are you serious?" And I said, "Yes! They're on a date." Robert and I sat right in the front window. Jay and Chuck sat way in the back, behind the planter. We couldn't even see them.

I had the Spicy Meatloaf, and Robert had the Mac and Cheese Extra Ordinaire. We shared a banana pudding dessert and each had a cup of coffee.

Leaving there, we stopped at White Rabbit to get a card for Adam for next Wednesday. It's his 21st birthday on Thursday.

From there we went to the Super-K in Garner, looked for a Rubbermaid cake storage container, bought a bunch of bananas for the ride tomorrow, and the ingredients for the Pistachio Nut Cake. Once home, I made the cake and its icing.

We got to bed fairly early as tomorrow we have to be up at 5:30, to be in Louisburg by 7:00 for the big 90-mile ride! Robert is sweeping.
