A trifecta of events that are being celebrated by Lunies today: Happy Birthday to Minnie, and bg (our birthday "twins"), and Happy Anniversary (45!!) to Norma and her husband Ed! I can hear the champagne corks popping all over the Lunaverse!

Image
This is snort-worthy scatalogical humor...made me laugh!

Meanwhile, on the olfactory front, BOTH dogs were skunk sprayed last night. Once again, this is never at the most opportune time...and they always get it in the head. Fortunately, the temperatures outside were warm...and the deskunking kit was supplied. A "fragrance" still emanates from them, and their rolled leather collars will have to be replaced. You knew it was a WHEN, and not an IF.

39 Lunies are on the Dog Days Honorboard so far....and you still have today and tomorrow to meet week one's 10,000 m requirement! You got this!!

Uff da! The Lunie Challenge team took a 25 percent hit through week 2, and now there are 40 stalwart Lunies still in the Hunt for the Dog Days of Summmrr Challenge! Alas, I was one who fell off the Challenge list - had an MRI on the left knee (previously called the "good" knee) EARLY this AM. Think I ripped something up.

Hello fellow Luna-tics,
It's been awhile since I've checked in, or even rowed for that matter, as we've been in the process of moving from NY to CO. Just getting my rowing machine unpacked and ready to use again, but am still getting used to the higher altitude, so it may be a while until I'm acclimated. And there's so much to do here with trails and hikes, camping and so many outdoor activities to take advantage of that it's hard to commit to stay inside on such beautiful days. :) We've even got a friends who are going to take us kayaking in a few weeks! I've never been, so it should be fun.
But I'm definitely looking forward to getting back in the Concept II saddle and keeping updated with what's going on with my fellow Luna-tics.

On a side note, if you've ever considered using 1-800-PackRat for your moving needs I'd advise you not to. They lost our container (they found it eventually, but the truck had broken down in Virginia and they couldn't find a driver to get it to Colorado) and it was delivered 10 days late. We're still waiting for them to pick up the empty container over a week past the pick up date. It's been a nightmare experience, so keep that in mind if you have need of a self-loading moving service.

I'll check back in as often as possible and hope everyone is doing well. :)
β€œLife should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, used up, totally worn out, & loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

That's funny. I just wondering "I wonder what's up with Jodi. Haven't heard from her in a while".
Sorry about the moving issues.
Colorado is beautiful. I'm sure that you will enjoy it there. Hopefully you will still find some time for erging with all the great outdoor activities to enjoy.
