I woke up at 7:30am to the tender kisses of Angus, and shooed him away, and dozed for another half hour before getting up at 8am, when Leslie and Bob also arose. Leslie fixed us ‘egg mcmuffins,’ of bacon, cheese and fried egg on English muffins – tasty! It was overcast and cool, but not raining, yet, so they went for a mountain bike ride, while I continued blogging. They came back, and after a while, we all piled in Bob’s car and went to a small event where Bob and his pipe band (as in, bag pipe band) were to play at. Unfortunately, the weather was cold and windy, so there weren’t many people there, but they played anyways, and I enjoyed the heck out of it. I love bagpipe music, and they sounded great. After their gig – about 40 or so minutes, they finished and went playing and marching right into the restaurant that was doing the event, and we all got a private room where they served nachos and beer. We all yakked up a storm, while warming up. After a few hours, everyone drifted away to go home, and so did we. Bob and Leslie’s friends Robert and Sharon came a bit later that afternoon (also avid cyclists), so we all went out to dinner at a local pizza restaurant. We chatted the whole evening while munching on two large pizzas and beer (root beer, for me). Afterwards, we went back to Bob and Leslie’s, and I blogged more, while everyone else went to bed. Today, I only stayed up until 12:30am before hitting the hay.
