Why I Feel Ill Today

This evening the President gives his speech writer's state of the union address. It won't be quite as entertaining as his own speech... I'm sure.

"It's like saying, you know, 'You're breaking the law.' I'm not...But also -- and we -- look -- I said, 'Look, is it possible to conduct this program under the old law?' And people said, 'It doesn't work in order to be able to do the job we expect us to do.'" -- George W. Bush

Blustery Beach

Side Track, Boots, and Buzz Daddy on the Beach in Ft. Lauderdale.
It really wasn't that cold, just blustery.

Miami Marathon Results

Boots is pictured with Buzz Daddy just after he completed the Miami marathon in 3:52:58 placing him 108 out of more than 280 people in his age group. The overall placement results have not been posted yet, but the finish should put Alex comfortably in the top 25%.

While 3:52:58 is not an extraordinary finish time, it is notable that he successfully negative split by running the second half of the marathon faster than the first half. This is not an easy thing to do.

Alex has now completed 31 marathons/ultra marathons in 11 different states. He hopes the Miami marathon will prove to be good training for several ultra events to come.

Who the... ?

Boot's New Friend

Less than one block from the swimmer's hall of fame... Addy met this guy on our parking meter. He did not join us for breakfast, but was something to see... nonetheless.

Welcome to Broward County

The first sight Boots and I saw when exiting the Ft. Lauderdale Airport was airport security writing a ticket to Sidetrack for "parking" in an unauthorized area. Of course, this was an entire stretch of his imagination, but who's gonna argue with our homeland security officials in Broward County no less. The odds of winning this one in court would not be promising, as we've witnessed before. We think we'll just let this one slide.

Holiday Festivities!

Joann and Mindy enjoy listening to Uncle Pfft read to Ike.

We didn't know Uncle Pffft could read, and he did just fine... with BD's help.
