In preparation for (son) Allen and his wife Sarah coming over. I vacuumed, dusted, org in shop, basement office, and cleaned in the bathrooms.
We grilled out, and watched the Tribe victory as we ate our steaks.
I cleaned up afterward, studied some Russian, and then rode my bike 60 min for a record 16.8 mi.
Most of the day was rest as I watched the Monaco GP, the Indy 500, and some of the NASCAR some 600 mile races.
(At one time when I watched the 500 I would see some drivers I had met in SCCA – now they own/run teams – Ganassi and Michael Andretti.)
Not all play, as I moved files from guest room to utility room – milestone: the guest room has no more misc storage!
I did some Russian (now on level 2 in Rosetta Stone), and biked one hour.
In the AM I updated blogs: lifeofcharles 19-25 may; charlog; and freethought.
