The BFC was in full force today...And some sad news

The Barbecue Friday Club (BFC) came over to my house again today for lunch. We had chips and dip, burgers with all the fixings, hotdogs, corn on the cob, and Bananas Fosters for dessert. It was wonderful! This was our second week and it looks like it will be taking place most Fridays.

This weekend looks like it will be a pleasant one. I will be hanging out with Sean tonight and Jen, a friend whom recently moved from Pittsburgh, tomorrow. I am sure there will be a good long bike ride in there somewhere. I will be working on my exciting Excel quizzes this weekend, that are required for my grad school. Perhaps I will even start my resumes too.

Unfortunately, I learned some sad news this afternoon. Once again a Yale Rider, Alex Capelluto, has been struck by a vehicle and killed. Last year, during my ride across the US, Ramie was hit by a car. See previous post.

You can read this article for the most recent occurrence of a 20 yr. old from Yale. I hope that they continue this ride, in spite of this tragedy. It is a wonderful experience for everyone involved. It has been almost a year since I had started my ride and their is hardly a day that goes by without me talking or thinking about the wonderful experiences I had.

Enjoy your weekend.
