Ryan and Richmond
This week I’ve been in Richmond, Virginia,I was here about 5 years ago.This time I was here to work with the Department of Environmental Quality.I stayed right downtown and walked to/from their office.Luckily, the manager of the group was kind enough to take me to dinner a couple of the nights.One of the crappy things about being on the road is having dinner by yourself.Anyhow, the mid-term elections were this week and the state of Virginia was one of the pivotal states in the control of Congress.Last week before I left, I voted down at the County offices in Provo.I had very little free time but did manage to get on the bike each morning and night to exercise.Last night, I drove up to Alexandria to watch the BYU game at Ryan’s house.About a year or so ago he bought a condo and this was the first time to see his new house.Shortly after he moved in Marcella flew out for a weekend to do the decorating.She did a great job.The game was quite entertaining as the Cougars gave a serious beating to the Cowboys of Wyoming (55-7).Driving back was a challenge but I made it safely.Now, home for a couple of days before heading to Long Beach.
