Ending Weight: ~135lbs.
I got up at 7:45 A.M. and warmed up the TV (it's a 1978 Sony, purchased just to see the Huskies in that year's Rose Bowl) for I wanted to see the remnants of Odyssey 2000 in this year's Rose Parade. (These are riders who paid an extra $3000 surcharge to continue at Singapore. I refused to pay - hence my vicarious TV longings.)
On TV? Not a peep! (Same as last year?!) I confirmed Odyssey was in the parade (via internet) but if they were again placed at the "Pole Position" (1st in line) they're overlooked. (continued ->
-> continued) Oh well - so it goes :-( (sigh.)
Last week the weather was cloudy (see reverse [bottom postcard]) and rain. Today - spectacular! So I hopped on my "Global 2000" bike and met Susan Cady, Richard & Joyce (ex-Odyssey riders) at Leschi. We spin up the Burke-Gilman trail; we get closure, at last!
So this is the "End of the line!" Odyssey is over and I'm readjusting to the "real world." I purchased a new car (Honda Insight). I've been visiting my "old haunts" - Sea Garden Restaurant in Chinatown; Starbucks (several locations); Pho Van on Rainier Ave.
Lisa Chu - kept my creditors at bay, for the year!
