Tour de Roundo

Tour de Roundo is another bicycle charity ride that I have ridden in since it began about 5 years ago. For me it was a little more than a charity ride it is the only bike tour where I actually raced everyone to the finish. I finish in first place 3 out of the 4 times I raced in it. The one time I lost was after I injured my leg and I was not strong enough to be a contender that year.This year would have been my 5th try but I will miss it this year just as I did the MS150 charity bike ride.

When I live in Charleston it was not that far to go to Roundo SC where the event is held but it is too far since I am in Lancaster now and much too expensive for fuel for me to do it this year. It is one of the best charity bicycle events I have ever had the honor of doing.

I will miss being there this year but hopefully I can do it next year.

Back home

I have been in Charleston now for almost two weeks. Now I am back to our home upstate. Tomorrow I will get back to work making some new woodturings. I will be posting some pictures of them after they are finish or even before they are finish.

Went to church today at the church Leila attended when she was growing up. It always like a family reunion when we go there. So many people she knows still go there as a lot of her family does. They have to talk and talk, I love it.

This is a picture taken from my side yard of my new home and my studio where I turn wood into bowls and vases. The Studio has three rooms. One is upstairs where my gallery is located and two rooms downstairs that I used for turning and other woodworking projects.
