Look what my wife did for metxcross

Here's a little backgroud. My wife and I both have our hobbies, mine is cycling hers is scrapbooking. This is something she picked up shortly after our son was born. With all the fun she has had making fun of me, tight shorts, funny shirts and socks special for cycling... she decided to make this for me. It sure did make me happy. The newspaper clipping reads "Blanks Bikes 177 Miles, Survives" "Tom Blanks, former couch potato turned obsessed cyclist, completed a grueling two-day charity ride Sunday (continued inside on 2A)"
Great support from the spouse - how were the 177?KeeponTrekkin

It was split over two days. Sunday morning was tough, my legs were tight and sore. This was by far my longest ride to date. Looking forward to many more.

Thanks

Very cool. If she did that for every big ride and/or vacation you do, it'd make a nice little collection of memories when you are old. Makes me yearn for an SO to do small little things like that for me. Sigh.

Excuse me while I go drink my lonely self into a stupor.
That's really nice!!....she's pretty creative!!! [nm]bent_spoke

Awesome scrapbooking! I made a scrapbook in honor of my first MS150 in 2000 - 5'4" and 240 lbs. I was much lighter and much faster this year! Sounds like you had a great ride, what a great way to remember it.
She's a keeper!davet

And a very thoughtful lady. Imagine what it's going to be like when you've been married 50 years and this gets pulled out of the bookcase. What a great memorial to both of you.
