Great week of riding. Rode to Champaign a week ago, LeRoy twice. Bad news. When I ride to LeRoy, a 55 miler, I always stop at DJ's bar to rehydrate. My favorite bar owner Doris would always have a beverage waiting upon my arrival. I have mentioned her before in this blog. This wonderful 70+ lady even called to make sure we were ok after the Washington tornado. I first met her during my training for my cross country event. Yesterday I decided to ride to LeRoy. Ronni was waiting for me with the van. I began changing and she went to the front of the bar. It was closed. We thought it might just be a temporary thing and drove home. Ronni called and her daughter answered the phone. Doris died about a week ago. She fell and hit her head leading to her demise. She was a fine lady and always found time to talk with us when we visited. Doris will be missed.
