I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

MS-150 (115)

I'm back and sort of rested from the weekend's MS-150 bike ride on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. The event was executed remarkably well especially considering the number of participants and everything that has to be coordinated. Our cycling team (Blazing Saddles) has really grown from its beginning in 2008. This is in large part due to our team Captain's work - Lisa Taylor has really been getting it done. Our team was able to raise over $10,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. It was a good time & for a very good cause. It's the third year that Tammy & I have done this ride and this was the hottest and the windiest (sp?) too. They actually shortened the ride the second day because of concerns about the elevated temperatures (110 heat index). We ended up with a total of 115 miles on the rode.

Many friends & family helped take care of our precious children and that ultimately allowed us to do this ride. We are grateful.
