A friend of mine from Chicago, who also happens to be well connected with the dog rescue community in the southeast, reached out to me yesterday afternoon with a request. A german shepherd mix had been rescued and saved from euthanasia, and a family had gladly offered to adopted her. Only problem was, the dog was in Decatur and the family was in Canton and unable to drive to Decatur to get her. My friend asked me if I was willing to transport the dog. As it turns out I work not too far from Decatur and I live not too far from Canton. So this seemed like a really good fit. I gladly volunteered.

RAGBRAI: The Untold Stories

During the week of RAGBRAI I did my best to write a blog entry every day. But typing on a droid micro-keyboard in the heat of the afternoon while surrounded by a dozen other riders and thinking about where I can get dinner is not an environment that is very conducive to thorough writing. Now that I am comfortably seated at my desk and I have all the time I need, I can go back and write up all the stories that I didn't have time to tell before.
