Happy Birthday Mr. President...

In 2007 I completed the "Maryland Marathon" or "Maryland Challenge". It involves hiking the 41 miles of Maryland's section of the Appalachian Trail in a day. I decided to start at 1 am on no sleep. Good thing I have this photo for proof that I really met George Washington, or I would have thought it was a sleep deprivation hallucination. George was a swell guy and shared some cold soda and snacks with me.

And now for some additional photo fun. It's been raining a lot the past few days. I caught this rainbow on the way home from work last week. The sky was pretty excellent the whole drive home.

Nicole and I saw this bumper sticker on a car outside of Will Rogers State Park. We were up there Sunday for a nice trail run. The sticker had something to do with the corruption of the music industry due to the internet.

Souplantation. We went over the weekend. Thank you again Figgy and Stitch for opening our eyes to this place. Yummy restaurant with great soups and a huge salad bar. Oh, and it is all you can eat (AYCE for you trail folk). Damage was done, I promise you that.

Lastly, there are only a few hours left for voting in Grandpa's Stories poll. By the time you are reading this, chances are a winner has been chosen. Thank you to all those who voted. As for the rest of you, you'll have another chance - but do it! The more the merrier.

And now I'm gone.

we should meet up at Souplantation soon. Maybe when you're done digesting that leaning tower you just pounded.

You're on for Souplantation. The leaning tower was a variety of deliciousness. My favorite was either the corn chowder or clam chowder...
