JPR 2008: Tuesday afternoon

During the afternoon break, Dianne Marsh took Dick Wall, Mike Levin, and me to the Crested Butte Nordic Center for a bit of cross-country skiing. (Dick and Mike had tried xc before, so I was the rank newbie.) Dianne was a very patient and helpful babysitter. I didn’t fall down once. (*)

(*) The statement above is true, strictly speaking. I actually fell down about a half-dozen times. ๐Ÿ˜‰
