Went to a men's Breakfast this morning, great food and a testimony from Bill about his being sober for 25 years this coming Monday - awesome!

Went to Masters with a full stomach and not expecting anyone else to show up, as Greg is away and Kevin is visiting his son for parents weekend at UVM. I was happy to see Meg and Jill ready to swim! They were doing their own thing since they haven't been in the water in two months, so I did some main set stealing ...

----------------------------------

That 150's set is great - a nice mix of pleasure and pain! The increasing easy effort is just the right recovery, and I did back to help keep my shoulders stretched out.

Just got home from an exhange post-arrival orientation for #2 at the school, with the 17 area host families. Good info and I think that the kids enjoyed getting together. I liked the food from different nations as each student made a dish from home. We're about to leave for a German dinner to support the area food and fuel fund, and to give #2 a taste of home.

Last night I was able to check out ourtown's latest attempt at a Guiness World Record for the largest peanut butter cup. 229 pounds! Pieces were then sold off to raise move for PAVE, the Project Against Violent Encounters that supports women in leaving abusive situations.
