i ended up taking today off and met my great aunt and uncle for lunch. they are each in their 90's and sharp as a whip. they still drive up here from north carolina. there's actually a random story about my aunt and my friend brett starr: it takes place at least 8 years ago? i know brett was still in high school. anyways, brett was on a family vacation somewhere out east, maybe virginia. he's at a rest stop skating around, and this older lady (my great-aunt) comes up to him and asks if he knows "her nephew andy hutchison". i wish i could have see the look on his face. i guess she thought that since he and i both skated that we might know each other. kind of crazy. after lunch wer'e saying our goodbyes and my aunt says to me "andy, i'm so glad you have a motorcycle". priceless. after that, i ended up riding back roads to bloomington with lee. rode in a sweatshirt all day. not bad for october 29th.
