Best Week Ever

Last week was great. The sun was shinning, the weather was warm, the trees were ablaze in colors, a great friend was visiting and it was the anniversary of my wedding. We have a knack of celebrating milestones with an activity instead of material gifts.

This year the wife surprised me with an introductory glider lesson with Sugarbush Soaring down in Warren, VT. After an hour on the ground, the instructor and I were towed up to 4,700 ft and spent another hour cruising thermals and checking out the view. It was out of sight (and I'm a tool for not bringing my camera up with me).

The next day we went to a local stable for a trail ride. It wasn't as amazing, but still was a fun experience (lesson learned: don't ride a horse right after you receive a chiropractic adjustment!).

We usually aren't your horse rides and afternoon soaring type of folks, but it was fun to try out a different style and see how the other half lives. Now back to the mac & cheese and cold rain.

To commemorate, here are two topical tunes:

Matt Pond PA - In the Areoplane Over the Sea.mp3 (Neutral Milk Hotel Cover)
Laid Back - White Horse.mp3

    I admire Matt Pond's courage in trying to cover anything off that album but it's tough to improve on perfection. It takes huge balls for an artist to touch any of those tracks.

    Holy Hair Arm.
