We had our party. Slow start cuz of the rain, but then the rain stopped, so we actually did stuff outdoors. Set up Jocelyn's silks rig and taught many people the thigh-squashing flip. I ended up doing it thrice this weekend (twice at a party on Saturday, which is why the rig wasn't set up...) and I have bruises. Jocelyn is not sympathetic.
Then I led the charge to the lake, and gave six people (including me) waterski rides, and six people tube rides. Dumped two of them in the drink because they had their weight too far forward on the tube, and it did a nosedive, which put too much strain on the aging rope and it snapped. Fortunately at one end so I could just tie the knot a couple feet closer and no one was the wiser. Except the two 8-year-olds who were pretty terrified. They watched another set of kids tube, though, and then they were ready to try again and a good time was had by all. Fewer people than usual came, but I'm OK with that -- I get to actually know who's there. And parking is less of a nightmare. I got to play two games, many people helped with cleanup.
Today, then, the final houseguest left, on bicycle, so I "had" to deliver the car and then ride home from work.
25.82 miles in 2:22:21 for an average of 10.8. I thought I was doing pretty well at various times, but I had started out really slow through the park. It was cold! 75 and cloudy. Well, maybe not actually cold, but at least, not hot. I got clammy. Ew.
In the bad news department, Perry got a brand new big razor scooter for his birthday, and this evening it was pinched from the community center porch while he was at chess club. We reported it to the cops in case some parent discovers their kid having a scooter they ought not to and reports it found...
