You Only Turn 70 Once Ride, Saturday, June 15th

 My wife, Sherry, and my daughter, Meghann,  are throwing a bash for my 70th birthday this Saturday, June 15th, at The Farm because they think its something worth celebrating.   Grilling will include hamburgers and brats. 

As an FYI our favorite Canadian, yes Lindsay, also has a birthday Friday.  She’s getting ever so close to 40 years old.   Great people were born on the 14th, Flad Day!

Dave Miley is going to plan some routes that I am sure that will include some of my favorite roads.  Unfortunately, they probably won't include Dobbins Pike as it is a little too far.  I am sure he will include some others.  Ride time will be at 8:00AM from The Farm. 

My borther-in-law and sister-in-law have offered their pool and pool house for the festivities.  So, bring a chair and side along with your bathing suit and a towel and sun poolside. 

Husbands, wives, significant others are invited as well. 

Post what sides you are going to bring.

Come join the fun.  Who knows, I might even show up.

Watch for updates to the post with routes, etc. 

See you on the road,

Mike

Andrew Getter

After two weeks of increasing back pain Andrew was found to have multiple abscesses along his epidural spine from neck down. He had surgery to drain these at Southern Hills Medical Center last night. He is back in a Critical care room, alert and generally feeling well. He will have several weeks of antibiotic but how long that will be in hospital depends on infection response. As of now he is in CCU 11 on 2nd floor.
