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.

What a great Memorial Day weekend

Judy and I spent our Memorial Day weekend down south, first as part of the officiating crew for the UCI portion of the Mellow Johnnys mountain bike race, and then with part of Judy's family at a private lake close to San Saba.

Our time at the lake was definitely more memorable than the race. Judy had a chance to hold her little grand-nephews (or whatever Conner and Leslie's twin boys are in the genealogical order--she's holding Carson in the above pic), catch up with Mike and Candice, get good laughs from Mark and Anne's one-liners, and enjoy the companionship of long-time family friends Gary, Debbie, and Travis. Throw in a bit of kayaking on the lake and a lot of relaxing (even if we stayed for only 36 hours), and it was a great weekend.

Right now I am off for a week to Quebec (again) for anti-doping, and Judy is enduring another chemo treatment. Enjoy the pics as they show why we go through all this.

Hi both - Judy, I hope you are on a treatment break this week and that your progress continues. Your Memorial Day weekend pictures look great - you must have had a really good time down south with family, friends and water! The kayaking looks fun. Thinking of you both as always. Celia xxx
