Mari is one of my OU connections. Someone who I'd never actually met in person until yesterday, but we've had quite a bit of forum and email contact and I felt like I knew her anyway and that's exactly how it felt when I was with her.
I was only going to spend an hour at her place, but time just zipped along and I found myself three hours later wishing I didn't have to make that two hour journey home and that I could've stayed longer, but I needed to get back.
Mari has several things going for her, three of which you can see in this photo:

However, the piece de resistance was her e-bike. No that's not a computer bike, but one that when you start to pedal a little electric motor kicks in and takes all the effort out of bike riding.
Mountain Man bought me a DVD of Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron for this birthday. It's a bit of a family joke, but there's a lovely line from that film that we use a lot (or rather I do), which is 'Run, run like the wind'. But of course if I got myself an e-bike... well need I say more?
