Finally, Another Adventure: Tweed Ride!

It’s been awhile since our last micro-adventure.  It was January, right before things got crazy, when we adventured our way to Wisconsin, to watch A Prairie Home Companion.

But, this past weekend, Beanie went off the Grandma and Grandpa’s house, and Rob and I headed to Tweed Ride, in our home-away-from-home, Traverse City.

If anything is Rob, Tweed Ride is Rob.  Rob, who enjoys reading the lesser-known minimalist blog, The Art of Manliness.  Rob, who waxes his moustache every day, and simply had to wear his daily wardrobe to this event.

It was a great get-away, and we loved seeing the water again!  And that thick, heavy wind, by the water–with that wet, summery smell to it.  It’s definitely something I’ve missed.

And the event was an absolute delight!  Here are some pictures:

MY man won “Gent of Distinction” and “‘Stash of Distinction!”

There he is, with the Lady of Distinction.  But, of course, he went home with the most beautiful lady of all!  😉

All in all, it was a great adventure, and something we will definitely do again.

    • One of my co-teachers likes to make pins for us to wear. And after meeting Rob, she made one that says, “I moustache you a question.” I think he was an inspiration!

      • Hahaha – I like that. Should be a permanent one. Those pins are great. I remember when we got balloon pins in Albuquerque when we went to Balloon Festival. 🙂

        • It always leads to good conversations with my students. I had a girl who just arrived, and doesn’t speak any English, point to my pin. We were in the computer lab, so I said, “Let me show you,” and brought up this post. She laughed when she saw Rob, and got her friend’s attention, so she could interpret. Apparently, she was asking me if he was famous… 😉
