While we were on vacation Mary made me a cup of coffee at her mom's house.
"This is really good coffee," she said. "How do you like it."
"I like my coffee," I said, "Like I like my women ... Bitter. Bitter like life."
Over the course of the vacation I repeated the line at every opportunity.
No wonder she's bitter. Bitter like life.

This is a bit long, a little more than 4 minutes, but it condenses our hour long walk up Azure Mountain on the morning of June 21, 2008 quite nicely. It was Lucy's second Adirondack ascent and she did great. You can see that she enjoyed every minute of it. She is fascinated by almost every feature of the woods. We want to climb another mountain in August but have not made a decision yet. We are open to suggestions. The music is from the Carter Family.
We bought this toy helicopter for Lucy's Grandfather several years ago. We finally broke it out of the blister pack last week. Believe it or not, it was still in working order after two afternoons of play. Chris Lenney my buddy from Malone Telegram days is the big guy Lucy chases with the helicopter.

Thanks to everyone who supported Relay For Life efforts, either with me or with Relay in your own community. Now, we have to start planning next year. Well, I have to mow the lawn first. UPDATE: I made my goal thanks to Sis-in-Law Diana! Thanks Diana! And, you can still donate! Click Here to go to my donation page!

It's not really about hitting my personal and, frankly, arbitrary goal. It is about helping to make sure our children and grandchildren will live in a world where cancer is on the run, where treatment is easy and routine, where detection is a matter of course.
And that's all I have to say about that.
