If you are Mr. Bliss, do not look at this post.
Here, I'll give you a few blank lines so that you don't have to see this.
Now off with you!

This is for my blog friend/art teacher cohort, Chan Bliss. He signed on for my "Pay It Forward" swap. Now, you all have to tell me whether or not this is okay. This is a caricature of Chan. If you think that he will hate it, you have to let me know so that I can do something else. He seems to be a good natured guy, and my intuition tells me that he will laugh at it in an okay way. My intuition is not always right on the mark though, so do let me know. Anyway, here he is holding x-acto knife, paint brush, and needle & thread...some of our tools of the trade.
Today the weather was GORGEOUS here in Northern Virginia. M and I started training again on the bikes. We did 30 miles today. While I was out riding, it all seemed well and good. When I got home, I crashed ( in a pooped out kind of way...not in a horrific accident kind of way.) We're doing our first event in a few weeks and I don't want to crash (poop out) in the middle of it. I think that ride is 45 miles long, out of state, and on a Sunday. (That means traveling hours home afterwards, and going to work the next day.) So, I need to shed a few pounds (to say the least) and build back my endurance a little bit.
Okay...off to bed.
