halriley Tandem / Life

Saw a couple riding a tandem bike at the coffee shop this morning. And as I was reading about ancient gift economies and the principle of a gift given vs interest owed, it started me thinking.

The world would be a better, and more fun place if everyone rode tandem bikes.

Also, I've had the itch to make my own bike for a while. Maybe I'll make a tandem bike.

  •   tammyholz My husband thinks they are great also. I differ in opinion. I like space between us riding your own bikes. I think it fits our personalities. I am happy he wants to be tandem close with me, sweet man he is. 1d
  •   halriley @tammyholz I suppose balance is good ; ) 1d

halriley A Gift / For No Reason

Aren't these the best kind? A friend gave this mug to me as gift, for "no reason." He knows I'm a Timbers season ticket holder and a huge fan. So this morning I'm saying thanks to him and rooting for my Timbers to make the playoffs by drinking my morning cappuccino from it!

Today, I encourage you to give a gift for "no reason." There is someone out there who Loves you, maybe they've been trying to tell you so. And maybe what they really need is to hear it from you. -----
"We’ll sing for you Timbers, ‘Til you finish the fight. There’s a party in Portland. No one’s sleeping tonight!"
----- @timbersfc, @timbersarmy and the Rose City, I adore you. Thank you for your authentic joy and enduring spirit! Thank you for inspiring soccer fans in this country to step up and support the sport with passion, creativity, color and enthusiasm.
I am #RCTID #thankful

halriley Birthday / Come-apart

As a dad I hate the hard lessons I have to teach my children because of other people. His favorite birthday toy was broken by a couple boys on the playground. "I was sharing like I'm supposed to" he said to me with his little 7yro head hanging low from a broken heart, tears in his eyes and a handful of plastic pieces. "Those boys started fighting and just pulled him apart," he said as he showed the pieces of a little motorcross man broken apart. "I know exactly how both of you little guys feel," I thought to myself.

But there is a lesson in everything. And Dad's have a super power to make all things right. "Show me who these boys are. I want to talk to them," I said firmly as I stood up and looked toward the playground. When I looked back he was looking at the pieces in his hands, then he looked up at me, saw that I was serious, reached up for my hand and smiled as he wiped away his tears.

halriley Chief / History

Charles Alfred Anderson (Chief), scrapped together a meager budget, an old plane and a few spare parts in order to teach himself to fly at 22 years old. No one would teach a young black farm boy to fly. So he taught himself. In 1929 he had earned his private pilots license and by 1932 he was the only black aviator in the US with a commercial pilots license.
In 1940 he became the first Chief Flight Instructor for the vaunted and infamous Tuskegee Airmen.

Thanks for your vision and perseverance Chief! Thanks for your service to this country. And thanks for just being a badass.
