September 2007 - First Month of Retirement

This is our first month in retirement. And I've got to say it's been a very pleasant and enjoyable time. My running buddy Michelle successfully completed the Big Sur Trail Marathon in September and her husband Gustavo became a US Citizen. Michelle's friend Rose ran her début event. And Michelle's father Douglas has been to visit from New York and Ali and I enjoyed several walks and runs with him.

Sandy and Lizzie have their birthdays in September and we enjoyed a birthday party at the Johnsons. Angus looked very smart in his new Cub Scout uniform. And I helped with the water stop at the Rock'n'Roll Half Marathon. I've also been running almost every day. I run with Penny on Monday and Tuesday, Jim on Wednesday and Friday, Michelle on Thursday and Striders on Saturday. Silicon Valley Marathon's coming up on November 4. I haven't been getting in my long runs. I'm making my excuses up front!

And coming up....

We're really looking forward to the arrival of our second grand-child in November. Ali and I think Holly's going to have a little sister next month. And our friends the Dermers are coming to the Bay Area for Thanksgiving and I believe we've been invited to the Fellemans to eat the Turkey. That'll be lots of fun.

After Thanksgiving, Ali's going to England to visit the family and to see the baby of course. I'll join her just before Christmas.

I'll be in Europe for a little over 2 weeks. In addition to spending Christmas with the family, we're planning a vacation in Lanzarote at New Year with our Finnish friend Veli-Veikko. VV's been asking us for about 20 years to join him for a warm island vacation at New Year and now we're finally going to do this.
