‘kaeru – the magic frog’… a few weeks ago, I opened the back door where I was house sitting and this beautiful sweet frog had been hiding under it. My little 4 yr. old friend, Emilie, says it’s a girl for sure! Thanks for hoppin’ on by today! :) bb >*<
In Japan, frogs are considered to have magical powers and they imply happy returns of money, fortune and/or a safe journey.
‘the landing of mama’…she arrived to our covered front porch, landed on the bench & stayed in this position for over 24 hrs. We thought she was dying.. then she flew up and stayed on the window screen for a day. To our surprise she laid her eggs there. The next night she flew in circles under the porch light in glee. She flew off before morning. We’re now waiting to see if little ‘mothies’ appear one day. Thanks for flyin’ by today bb >*<
‘ella-bike-galbraith ridge’…this pic was taken of my dear pet-friend ella by my dear friend Ryan of his companion dog & his mountain bike November 2014. It was my first time to get to go mountain biking…and I totally fell in love with it that day..too much fun!..even for the beginner me. Happy biking always!! bb >*<
“In 2015, this race has been re-named from Chiller Cross to honor the memory of Bandit, Ryan’s Australian Shepherd who assisted in the build out of every Cascade Cross course from October 2006 to January 2014. Rest in peace, and mud, Bandit!”
“This will be our fifth time out in January, and we’re still the only cyclocross series in the PNW to cross into the new year. It is one of our most popular races, which leads us to believe it is obviously a good time to race ‘cross’! We will be racing on the same weekend as Cyclocross Worlds this year, so you might also call this Bellingham Bandit Worlds!”
Have fun all you cyclocross racers and fans out there! Thanks for ridin’ by to check this out & happy biking always… in all weather. bb >*<
