Hello Fans, Friends and Family

Friday, June 11th:  We have spent most of the week around town and visiting with friends.  On Tuesday, Randy and Sue Stratton along with John and Joellen Wiese joined us for a barbeque at the white house, Judy’s family home.  The days have been mostly cloudy with about ¼ inch of rain at night.  Today I took another bicycle ride to Oconto, Broken Bow and back to Callaway.  Took pictures of some of the local flora along the way.  The corn fields are still growing.  The Yucca is blooming.  There were flowers of yellow, red and purple.  There is a weed with a purple bloom called Musk Thistle.  It is very hard to get ride of and spreads rapidly.  Also saw a few fields of wild mustard with it’s bright yellow color.  There are some trees that grow here called red cedar that also spreads quite rapidly.  They are considered weeds here and everyone tries to get rid of them.  Today’s ride was 57 miles giving me 155 miles for the week.  This is an eleven week cycling total of 3,737 miles in my goal to cycle 10,000 miles around the United States to raise money and awareness for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Tomorrow begins my 12th week and on Sunday I plan on cycling to Kearney, Grand Island, Columbus, Fremont, and Blair, NE.  We will drive back to Callaway the following week for Judy’s Alumni reunion and the Pioneer Picnic, celebrating Callaway’s 125 year birthday.  After the celebrations we will drive back to Blair, NE to continue my bicycle ride.  Until next time . . .
