They are still young and impulsive.
After the heroic effort in the race on Wednesday, Trevor fell victim to his love for fast engines on wheels. He signed up for a three-day 12-hour motorcycle training course (a good thing!). Clearly the Army emphasizes safety and training as a way of life.
He opted not to wear a pool helmet so he set out Thursday to buy one for himself. The plan was to buy a helmet, take the course and use his "cow" loan later in the year to buy a bike. He can't have wheels at West Point until next March.
He went to the dealer and got the helmet for free. Trouble is, it came free with a starter 600cc Honda street bike. Damn salesmen.
Now the bike will sit in my overcrowded garage for 4+ months waiting for him to come home at Thanksgiving to finally ride it (license still pending).
Running. I did 3.4 easy miles on Friday and 10 miles on Sunday in the heat. Sombody mentioned there were mosquitos out but they avoided me. I must have been too fast.
I have packed all the running gear I need for vacation and most of the other beach stuff I will want. The Narragansett Bless the Fleet 10 Miler is now on my dance card for July 26. I expect Billy J to join me and maybe AA will get down for the race that finishes with a seafood festival as the boat fleet bobs in the bay.
