I must be nuts.





Okay. I've got something to tell you. I've been keeping a secret for quite some time now.
Have you heard of that big ole bike ride from Seattle to Portland (STP) involving 10 thousand riders and a whole lot of pain?
Well, I and my entire family are going to do it on
July 17th & 18th.
I know. I'm nuts. But it wasn't really my idea.
I was just making conversation one day.
The next thing I know Glen paid the entry fee. I was stuck.

When life gives you lemons ...well, you know the rest.

This is where you come in.
There's a big 'ol "Finish Line Festival"
in Portland! If I'm still alive by then be there with your needles & hooks in hand!
Let's try and meet up with some of our buddies from the Portland area.

Check this out.
"
Awaiting participants and their families, friends and supporters is the STP Finish Line Festival in Portland, OR. Live music on the main stage, food booths, exhibitor booths and beer garden are just some of the features of the two-day festival."


Finally, we're looking to collect donations for the Pediatric Interim Care Center.
PICC is a program that provides specialized, 24-hour care for drug-exposed & medically fragile newborns. They have a wish list on line so you can see what they need. If you can possibly help out please bring your items to Yorkshire Yarns until July 18th.
To commemorate our successful bike ride to Portland the whole fam-damily will also ride to the PICC in Kent to deliver your donations.
By the way. We're riding a tandem. I plan to put my feet up quite a bit while my pilot flies the plane.
