A Gorgeous Day in Our Part of Michigan

This has to be the loveliest fall day, we've had all season! The temperature is right around 61degrees Fahrenheit and the sun has been shining all afternoon. Jay went for a very long bike ride, so he can reach 300 miles before the end of the month. The Make a Wish Foundation has asked each cyclist to record their own personal miles. It's more or less being done on an honor system, this time around. The donations were already tallied up in September. Now, it's up to each biker to complete their 300 mile goal, in however long it takes them. Jay is determined to finish it this week! The benefit of all this, children with terminal cancer will be granted their wish!

That's so wonderful of Jay and such a beautiful photo. The Make a Wish Foundation is one of the charities we give to regularly. One of the best.

@DianneN St Jude never charges the victim's family one dime, how admirable!

We have one old tree on the neighbor's property, it's probably eighty feet tall!

@rebelann Some of the trees around here are over 150 years old, that's why they are so big:)

Yes, we support this foundation because it's completely centered around helping children, during their hardest times. The little girl Emily, who hung a medallion around Jay's neck, I wonder if she survived another year

@kobesbuddy I'm stuck working part-time right now. I'd consider volunteering to visit young kids with cancer.

@TheHorse At the pediatrics hospital where my daughter works, seniors come in to rock the babies:) The nursing staff is far too busy to sit and do this! They appreciate these volunteers:) With covid, maybe it isn't allowed at this time.

A favorite time of the year. Very nice foliage. The bike ride is for a great cause as well.

@sharon6345 I could never make it an hour, on the treadmill. But, even a 1/2 hour is wonderful exercise! Some people ran on the treadmill, I was never able to do that

Some children do survive this critical illness, while other don't Only God understands why.

What a wonderful donation program. The weather has been wonderful...60s and 70s. Things will change at the end of the week when temps go back down to the 50s. Beautiful picture.

Wow, you enjoy bike riding, too! Our leaves will probably be pretty for about two weeks. Then, the wind and rain will cause them to fall on the ground.

Last year they rode in a large group of bikers and Jay completed the 300 miles. This fall, it isn't allowed because of Covid-19.
