- Training ride cancelled due to cold and drizzle. We didn't decide this until we were already at the meeting place.
- We took the opportunity of being together to take a group picture. Instead of saying, "Say cheese," the captain said, "You can at least look disappointed about not riding today.!"
- We descended on Starbucks and shared some fellowship together over hot java.
I stopped at The Card Factory on the way home, and bought a graduation card for David, a birthday card for Andy, and three packs of Thank You cards that have bicycles on them! Cool.
I worked on my Tour De Friends paperwork. I got all the donations together, tallied enough up to me up to $2300, and packaged the rest to be submitted under Joe's name ($450). I filled out the required forms, and got those letters ready to mail.

We left around 2:00, which was way too late, and stopped and got a hot dog at the stand out on the street. They drove me back to Joe's, I had to walk Joe up to his door, and then I drove home. I got to bed around 3:00. Too late!
