Riding and Avatar

Friday was my first post-EP study bike ride. We did a tiny ride, all of 14 miles with zero elevation, but it was enough. There's still some residual lumpiness at the harpoon sites, and I could feel them more after riding than before. So short was good. We were out in the Carnation Valley again, we saw some horses out standing in their field. I would like to draw your attention to the gray one, foreground. Look at his mane. It needs to be combed and it needs conditioner. Someone is not caring for this horse properly. We felt badly for them, the flies were just obnoxious and none of them had fly shields for their eyes.

We saw these guys on the way back. Anyone know what they are? Interesting horns.

Yesterday we went to see Avatar with Kim & Jim Waddle (who are here for the month). Jim and I felt like we were the only people in America to have not seen the movie. Our strategy of waiting paid off, however. We go to see the extra 9 minutes on our first viewing. IMAX is pretty cool, it's a 6 story screen. The effects in the movie are pretty dang spectacular.

This is the world famous Space Needle. It's a relic from the 1962 World's Fair.

Today, being a holiday, gave us clouds and grey skies. Kim and I walked this morning, we did the one of the big hills in Issaquah. Up was ok, down gave me shin splints. So there you go.
