this morning’s rainbow

let’s hope this is a harbinger of good weather for our upcoming trip to Taryn’s world! It didn’t bode well for our weather here today although the rain did stay away until after Laurie and I had walked to Cactus on Alki for lunch so that was a good thing…… the lunch, time with Laurie and the walk, a veritable hat trick of good times šŸ˜‰
Sadly this afternoon brought the news that one of my old friends lost her recent battle with pneumonia today. She had lived with MS and it’s relentless advance for years without letting it stop her from doing pretty much what she wanted with a great amount of energy, determination and good humor. She had more friends than you could count, spread all over the world and I am sure that many of them are thinking of her tonight so here’s to you Rae and a life well lived no matter what got thrown your way to deal with. Cheers! šŸ˜‰

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
