Childhood Home

Here are pictures from Rice, MN. 

The elementary school.

The trees are a lot bigger than I remember.

The house is on the left.

A store in town that was open 30 years ago.

Stayvaction - Day 1

Took a trip to the fabric warehouse so the girl could find material to make me a jacket.

The girl thought the warehouse is owned by mobsters. Just in case, we left Lucy in the car.

Except for a few high priced materials, customer cut their own fabric.

There were customer in the warehouse but I tried not to include them in any pictures. I don't want anyone getting mad at me.

Isle 15 is where we found wool for my jacket. I image the value of all the material in here could be a million.

More fabrics...

Here is a picture from the outside. The building is located in a commercial industrial area.

Twin Cities Marathon Registration is Open

The marathon folks began taking registrations earlier this week, but for whatever reason I couldn't get myself to sign up before today. I ran the race every year since 1996, except for 2001 when I ran Chicago with my dad instead. The redheaded one said that maybe I waited to sign up because I don't like to spend money. She could be on to something as the race costs $100 and the website includes an additional $6.25 for transaction costs.

I would be crazy not to run our hometown marathon. It really is one of the best in the nation.
