I'm getting some lamb! The DH is designing and fabricating an automatic "kabober" for a Greek restaurant. The testing has involved skewering chicken and today's test involved lamb. He doesn't like lamb, but I do! It is already marinated, so I'm thinking ground lamb for my dolmatas (sp) in June....and, I've asked him to ask his client if he would let me order some lamb through him from his wholesaler...

Daniel (my 5yr old) learned how to ride a bike without training wheels yesterday :)
It's his big sister's bike. He called me outside and showed me what he had learned all by himself. I'm sooooo proud!!!!
He hasn't had a bicycle in over a year, my clever boy :)

He has broken 4 bicycles so I told him he has to wait till his birthday to get a new one but I think this earns him a big boy bike now.

Before you know it, he will be riding off to conquer the world. Or bring home a bride.

I love it when someone teaches himself to ride a bike. I was about his age when I taught myself to ride my sister's big bike. I didn't have one of my own, so I learned on hers. The only thing was I was too little to reach the seat! I just stood up and rode. This impressed my parents so much that Dad took me to the used bike store about a month later ( when he had saved up enough money) to get a bike that was sized for me. He dropped me off at the corner on the way home ( about a mile from home) so I could ride the bike home. You know, I could not ride that bike while sitting on the seat even though the man in the store had set it at the right level for me. I stood up and rode all the way home. When I got to the house, Dad moved the seat way up and I could ride. I guess I just got in the habit of riding standing and reaching. I have never had a close relationship with my Dad, but that is one of my fondest memories of being together. Now, he is a lonely old man, and I call him every week. I will be visiting him this summer. Yes, I'm smiling now.

That's a great story Chopper. Can you ride a bike with the seat at the "normal" height now?
