Father's Day

Guess what I got for Father's Day! Anna bought us day passes to the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC.  Oh yeah, she also got me a new T-shirt.  What a woman!

Tarr River - Kayak "Expedition"

Jim and Lynne set up an adventure for us to join them kayaking down the Tarr River.  The weather was perfect and the experience was delightful.  We ended the adventure by having a dessert-first dinner: homemade ice cream at Vollmer Farm in Bunn, NC followed by Shuckers Oyster Bar and Grill in Wake Forest.  We're looking forward to many more adventures with Lynne and Jim!

Anna @ 165 miles/hour!

Anna used her Mother's Day present at the Charlotte Motor Speedway as a passenger in the back seat of a full size Indy-style race car with a professional racing instructor driving at top speeds.  She thought it was exhilarating.  The very short videos give you a taste of the experience.

Pistol Range Duty

Anna and I were range officers today at the Durham County Wildlife Club.  It was a hot day and there were many shooters.  When things slowed down Anna did some target practice with her .22 at 7 yds. Myron renewed his acquaintance with his 9mm Beretta at 15 yds.  Our reward was dinner at a local restaurant with Rebecca and David and little Hannah.

Myron's second target:

Komen Race For The Cure

Anna and I have done this 5K race for a number of years now.  Myron continues to "compete" in the oldest age group and Anna is now the oldest in her age group.  Lynne walked the Research Triangle Park course to keep us company.  It was a beautiful day and 1000 timed runners participated in the race.

Dinner at Prem and Chris's House

Anna and I shared pizza, salad and dessert with Prem and Chris in their Cary, NC apartment.  We devoured the dinner and had a great time catching up on their busy and exciting lives.  Our conversation touched upon all of life's challenges.
