I’m pretty sure there are some better photos out there. I’m working on the cellphone-photo aesthetic.

Conditions were perfect. And to think I was worried that it was going to be a nice day.

There definitely need to be a few more of those races this winter.

Shakespeare, Henry V;

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;

For he to-day that sheds his blood with me

Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,

This day shall gentle his condition;

And gentlemen in England now-a-bed

Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,…”

And ladies.

They think themselves accursed because they weren’t there, and ladies?

Cross indeed…

Hey, it’s an old joke, but Will liked puns too…
