Cinco no de Mayo

Due to prior commitments and not being fond of Mexican food, I decided to just visit the troops before they embarked on their evening run. I was pleasantly surprised to see everyone decked out in his or her summer running attire. Since no one brought maps for the route, we made it a simple out and back course to ensure that everyone returned without getting lost. I haven’t heard anything bad a bout the evening, so I’m going to assume everything was wonderful. :-0

Tuesday at the Detroti Beer Co.

We had an opportunity to celebrate the birthday of Richard Brown, who turned 78 years young and is still showing up every Tuesday. It is truly an honor to know you Mr. Brown. Once again it was mentioned that our group is getting faster and even a little younger! I’m not sure how to take that young comment, but oh well. We had over 45 people partake in the after-glow of a great run. It was nice to sweat in a short-sleeved shirt and to replenish depleted fluids with the golden nectars. Dennis Handley and Jeanne Bocci are asking for volunteers to assist with the Celiac Group of Michigan’s annual Run/Walk event. The event is Sunday, May 21, 2006 at the Eleanor & Edsel Ford Estate in Grosse Pointe Shores. Volunteers would need to arrive at 8:00 AM.

Downtown R&W Hashing

The Downtown R&W were well represented at last weekend's 3rd annual Running with Sex Toys Hash.

Hares Speed Semen and Willing Filling were impressed that the club could run so well with blow up paraphernalia and assorted items. DRW knows how to have fun and not take themselves so seriously.

Selling well-loved 2003 Jeep Liberty

My company has made me an offer I can't refuse through the Company Car Program, and I am selling my awesome 2003 Jeep Liberty.

it has 61,000 miles,
has had regular check ups,
in excellent health,
has 4WD (excellent in snow),
has electronic movement driver's seat,
electric windows, sunroof, rear-window wiper, CD player,
is "relay" reliable,
and can even dance as good as it looks....... (okay - it lost a battle with Doug's fender, but the tiny scar gives it character).

Edmund's places it around $12-13,000 for private sale. I am willing to sell it for $11,000. It's such a great car, that I'm getting another one through my Company Program (you don't want to know - it's too good to be true). I probably will not be able to part with my Jeep for about 4-6 weeks. If interested, please email me or call me. 586 776-8793
