17 tomorrow, and then we head west

I'll run 17 tomorrow, swapping next week's scheduled mileage for this week's scheduled recovery because I'll be at Camp Rockmont next weekend with my son. It will be my longest long run since I trained for Disney in 2003.

Christopher and I had a good Yasso workout yesterday. Times 7 @ around 3:40, an easy mile on either end. Christopher cannot join me tomorrow because he's traveling to Dallas to visit his ailing father. Eric may join me tomorrow - I e-mailed him what I planned to do but I haven't heard back from him.

After the run, the family willl pack up and head to Salisbury to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Then it's off to the mountains for a Labor Day vacation. This despite $3.50 gasoline and the governor advising against unnecessary travel. It's not as though this is an impulsive trip - we'd been planning it for weeks. The kids have never seen the mountains. Question is, how available will gas be in the western part of the state?

As I write this, I have live video streaming in from WWL TV in New Orleans. No matter how sore I feel after a long run, no matter how stressful it gets at work, no matter how hectic it can get at home, no matter how high gas prices get, it pales to the horror that those folks are living through. We suffered through Fran, but Fran was a picnic compared to Katrina.

Big Brother 6: What did I miss?
So, Thursday's Big Brother 6 wasn't shown until 2:05am here in New York, and I forgot to set my ReplayTV to grab it.
I've gotta give it to you . . . and I'm just glad to see how well you've set up your blog! I was thinking about this just yesterday -- when I was going to update my own site. But, I think your's looks great! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a Bad Credit Loan Adverse ReMortgage Personal Mortgage Secured Finance site/blog. It pretty much helps people set up an equity line of credit.

Check it out if you get a minute :-)

You have a knack for
writing. I read about 20
blogs a day, and skim about
30 more, so I mean it! We
can all use improvement, but
you certainly are better than
most I've read.

I'm going to be starting a blog
soon, about keyword
(I know, it sounds strange!) but
if you don't mind, I might drop
you a line just to get a little advice.

Thanks kindly.
