A cycling race in town

cimg2670.JPGThere’s a USA Cycling Organization sanctioned race in town today.  Darn, I missed it!  I’d participate if I know.  They closed off sections in town, which made it very enjoyable.  We have many amenities but no biking lanes.  I told the kids that we’re in next year this time.  Kinglazy liked to bike but Slowpoke is no.  We’ll see.

A very nice day it turned out.  Yesterday Simon dragged me out to play and today was Tony and his wife Jinyu.  I had good time hitting with her.  I met her last year and she improved her game very quickly since, now with very effective and good looking back hand and forehand.  Not to mention her endless long legs.  Tony is a 5.0 player, within our little circle, he has no opponent, but like to hangout with us anyway.  Lou (not sure it’s Louie, Louis or Lewis) played with us this morning before Simon finally woke up from his dream loaded with beers and wines from last night.  Lou and I hit if off right away last year.  No one introduced us.  He was injured and just came to chat, then started making fun of me, lol.  But he’s really a nice guy, with a single hand backhand.  Yesterday he teamed up with Peter against Simon and I.  Of course I was very busy, lol the weakest link.  But from time to time, he’d give me a sweet shot to hit (to provent me from crying afterward, lol) which annoyed Peter very much.  Today when Jinyu teamed up with Simon vs he and I, against he gave her many sugar shots.  Nice thing to do, not that I’m looking for easy way out.  He repeatedly told me to hit deep, stay behind the baseline,  identical to Simon’s coaching …  One thing he picked out which Simon didn’t, was turn my body.  I never realized that I didn’t!  Hey, Craig said he liked my backhand very much, only few weeks ago, lol…  I knew exact what he’s talking about, and he’s very right.  I’ve been working on it, okay!  Tony said I should always on my toes, like wearing high heels.  I’m always on my heels, lol.  It’s only 4.0 I’m dreaming about?  Lord if I could maintain the 3.5 I should feel lucky.  I need to get my act together.

I rarely played till this late, till 12 noon.  Usually starts at 6:30 and done by 9am.  But this group doesn’t like to start till 10am.  While having good time but I also felt guilty, I’m taking away the time I should spend with kids.  Jinyu went out with the group last night and she said Simon was in her ear the whole time, asking if she’d like to play early (with me), sweet Simon, lol.  Jinyu woke up at 7am, waiting, 8am, still no call.  Finally they called me around 9.
