Sissies in Cleveland

Yes, I'm behind....so I will attempt to catch up with what is happening in the biking bubble.  Last weekend, we arrived in Cleveland amid a torrential downpour.  It was a warm rain, though, so it was quite pleasant.  In fact, it was downright enjoyable riding through the rain....when was the last time you played in the rain with complete abandonment?  Probably as a child, right?  Well, that's a bit what it felt like!  I actually was singing;
"I'm riding in the rain
Just riding in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again....'
Fortunately, the rain drowned (pun intended) out my singing, so I was just serenading myself!  Arriving at the hotel. which was opposite the Cleveland Water Works, (how appropriate), the hotel staff brought us towels, then hustled us to our rooms quickly as we were dripping all over there floor.  We dripped faster than it could be mopped up by maintenance. 

Then the highlight of the weekend; my sisters, Jeanne and Shari, arrived!  It was so great to see them!  We spent the afternoon and following day visiting. laughing and catching up, then went fishing the next day.  That's right, folks, fishing in Lake Erie, off of Pier 55.  And we caught some whoppers, too!  (See picture below)
Jeanne, with the only fish caught that day.....
To celebrate our successful fishing trip, we went to a Slovic/German beer hall for some authentic ethnic food, beer and live German music.  Even our waitress was a buxom wench with a heavy Slovic accent.
We were expecting 'Heidi' to show up at any moment.
