Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

To three cool women: J, C, & K

OK, so there are billions of very deserving people out there, but this is dedicated to three of them:

Cindi H., who is right now at Hardwood Hills, Ontario, Canada, leading a UCI race with a crew of fine, fine Canadians. Cindi has been an undying supported of Judy's cause, even though the two have never met in person. Good luck this weekend, scootr!

Kathy J., whose hugs and rubs and good-luck wishes have been more than an inspiration during the TX TMBRA Spring Championship Series, and who is currently staying at the same hotel as I am in Pellham, AL--together with her hubby Alan, aka Jürgen--or is it Jürgen, aka Alan? (Don't read too much into this--A. and I always get mixed up at races because of our superior facial hair!)

And: JuJu herself, who made it through another week of post-chemo and work, was the great wife she is, and built that wonderful graduation cake for Emily--only to leave on Saturday morning for the 24 Hours in the Canyon. She's incredible.

Thanks for all your support, amigas y amigos!

24 Hour Races! You are braver than I. We opted out of that realm years ago because I like to sleep too much. 12 hours, sure, 18 OK, but 24???

Strong lady. Come visit your place in Telluride so we can make you dinner and share some wine.

Big hugs!
Cath and John

You go Judy!!!

One of these days we will manage to meet. I'll be waiting to hear how the 24hrs goes-sounds like something I'd like to try. Or in lieu of that, a marathon knitting session fueled by cookies :)

Wow Jürgen-that was a special treat to find this evening....

Hugs to you both in your respective venues!

Cindi :>

[blush]Jürgen, I don't know how I qualified to be listed with such great women, but thank you.[/blush] It seems that I'm such a "mommy" that I worry about all my friends and I think everyone needs a big hug from me. =D

Judy, you are truly an awesome woman... are you sure they didn't transplant the Energizer Bunny in you? You get through your ride in the canyon and I'll do my best to finish my "race" in Alabama.

HUGS! Kathy
