The Truth about Redheads

My daddy-o sent me (and my entire [and extended] family) an email with this picture:

I dunno, I think it’s probably true. I love to swim AND dance. It’s more plausible than when I used to think I was a mermaid, anyway.

Visiting Pittsburgh.

We drove out to PGH tonight to visit with Kelly and E. We were going to take the motorcycles – riding out here has been on our “must do” list for a while now – but it was raining so hard, and when I checked the Wunderground Roadtrip Planner it was high rain percentages both out and back. Plus it was low 60s, which is awesome for a short trip but can get pretty cold on a 10 hr trip in the rain.

But! Excuses! If we didn’t want to maximize our time with Kelly it would be different. As is we made the trip in just 7 hours and are ready to tuck in next to this beautiful lamp.

Hairstyling strategy: let it all stick up and see how the helmet squashes it. Before! #motorcycling # Hmmm. That didn't work like I thought it would. The helmet has no flattening effect on my crazy happy hair, apparently. … Continue reading
