There Was An Old Woman Who Swallowed A Fly

I haven't been on a bike ride for awhile.
I was going to go tomorrow morning, but rain is in the forecast.
So I went this afternoon.
It was very different than my normal morning rides.
I saw a squirrel.
This is one of my favorite sights.
I wonder if it has a name.
I call it, "The Sphinx."
There were a lot of people at the falls.
I didn't take their picture,
but I did have to walk my bike past them.
I was surprised to find snow still on the trail.
This was at the end, almost at Vivian Park.
But the biggest surprise was the number of bugs.
And yes, one flew down my throat.
It was awful.
I know it's inside,
wiggling and tickling.


  1. Gross! I hope he digested ok :o)
    And, by the way, you're right about having perspective. That's not easy to remember at 3 in the morning when the baby is screaming and you have a virus that makes you not able to hardly walk to her room for the 5th time that night :o) We are feeling better, though, and it definitely could have been worse! I am so very grateful for those vaccines!!!

  2. Good for you for biking all that way! Sorry about the bug though!

    When oh when will it be spring??? I bet we don't get any spring at all and then it will be summer.

  3. Yeah it does kind of look like a sphinx.

  4. Hi Julie!

    My name is Tom Grover and I am the great-great-great grandson of Thomas
    Grover, Mormon Pioneer. I grew up in Logan, Utah and am currently a law student at the University of Nebraska. I found your histories about Thomas & Emma Grover, but could not find an email to contact you, so I am leaving a comment here (I hope you'll forgive me).

    I have a project I need your help on. I estimate there could be as many as 10,000 descendants of Thomas Grover alive today, probably scattered all across the United States. I thought it would be really fantastic if we
    could somehow unite the entire Grover family. I have created a facebook group, "The Family & Descendants of Mormon Pioneer Thomas Grover" for the
    purpose of uniting the family, sharing information and honoring Thomas and his wives. Here is the URL:

    I am inviting you to join the group, and more importantly to forward this information to all of your family members, immediate and distant that are descendants of Thomas. Even if you are not on facebook, please forward this email so that others can be made aware of the group and join. I think it would be a great honor to Thomas to have large numbers of his family
    come together after all these generations have passed!

    If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to call me at




Thank you, Julie. You're Welcome, Louie.

Did I really want to start this last post of Steve's visit with another picture of my groupies watching Star Trek?  I sure did.  We'...
