Notes from Steve

We've been doing training rides on Thursday night for RAGBRAI. This last ride, we were going by a farmhouse north of Alexander and a big dog a Saint Bernard I think, came charging at the bikes. Now, I’m not proud of my actions but I looked at the three riders...

Poorly Differentiated Primate Lifeforms I’m talking about teenagers of course. Shelly and I just got back from a week of vacation with six of them (3 of ours plus 3 friends). There was a time when the kids were 1, 3, 5,7, and 9 years old that people would warn...

Making the Rounds with Dr. Hurt

I feel pretty doggone good today. It was a beautiful ride to work. It’s the kind of spring morning that makes you give thanks for all the blessings in your life. I’m thankful Steve asked me to write something for the “Pinnacle” a couple times a month. I had always...
