I had an old co-worker from the Beanry (Wow, that was a looooooong time ago) who couldn't remember me. :( 

Just kidding with the frown, because I only remember a couple of names from that time as well!  It's been like 25 years or so, too many names and faces have gone through my life to remember them all.

Please don't feel bad if you don't remember me, because unless I see a picture of you at that age, I probably won't remember you either. That's life, I guess.

On that note, here is a picture of me at age 17 (which is about when I worked at the beanry.

Wow, what a geek!
I'm feeling a lot better since my surgery a month and a half ago. The constant pain is gone, and I'm back riding my bike! I'm still not back to my old 30-50 miles a day yet, but I'm putting in about 50 a week.

I'm hoping to get fully back into shape before Thanksgiving. I still plan on making my annual ride to American Fork before Thanksgiving dinner, and I'm hoping LeAnn will join me! 

LeAnn and I have started a new cycling club called "Missing Link Cycling", and I'm hoping to get a few local riders to join us on some weekend rides.

Chris·tian [kris-chuhn]
- of, pertaining to, believing in, or belonging to the religion based on the teachings of Jesus Christ
- a person who believes in Jesus Christ
... - a person who exemplifies in his or her life the teachings of Christ

I am tired of being told I am not a Christian because I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints aka the Mormons. I accept Jesus Christ as my savior and redeemer. I know that it is by His grace that I will one day be able to return to my Father in heaven. I am not perfect. I am flawed. This is why I seek to follow His teachings that through Jesus Christ I can shed my flaws and be perfected.

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints - A Mormon. And I'm PROUD of it!
