Let's Ride!

A couple of weeks ago I told you about Reach the Beach and how my husband is getting ready to ride his bicycle 100 miles from Portland to the Pacific Ocean to raise money for the American Lung Association of Oregon. Well, it happens this coming Saturday, May 19, and it's not too late for you to join the fun.

Dennis is just $155 short of his $500 goal for this year, and that's where you come in. Any reader of this blog who makes a donation to help Dennis support this worthy cause by midnight on Friday, May 18, will be entered in a drawing to receive a thank-you gift from me.

What can you win? If you're a writer, I'll send you a current issue of any lit mag carried at Powell's (and they have quite a few). If you're a knitter, I'll send you something yummy (based upon your preferences) to knit with. Or, if you like to live dangerously, I'll send you a small handknit surprise! Oh, and if you've already donated, you still qualify for the drawing. There will likely be more than one winner, and if the number of folks involved isn't too huge, there may be something for everyone.

Keep your fingers crossed for good weather, smooth riding, and easy breathing!

Sharon, I'm probably coming a bit late to this but just to say best of luck to Dennis on his trip. Fingers firmly crossed for nice weather. Enjoy yourselves.

And loads of congrats on all your latest writing achievements...definitely ones to be proud of.

emma's egyptian get-up is fantabulous!! those armbands are such cute accesories, too. i'd like to commission a knitted gorilla suit. teehee. won't that be a riot?

Liz, those fingers worked great - it was cloudy and cool but dry on the day of the ride. Yesterday (Sunday), however, it poured all day long. Thanks!

Arlene - thanks! The suspense on the Lichen thing is killing me. A knitted gorilla suit, huh? I'll have to think about that... (Be careful what you wish for)
