We’ll be getting together again from 9:00am – noon on Wednesday and Friday at the gym.  I hope you’ll join us!

Nice job to the Bucks!  They sure had an awesome season.  I really admired how humble they were and how they gave each other credit after the win.  As most of you know, Brett works security for the Bucks even as he lives with MS and makes the best of it.  Brett made my night after the game when he sent me this picture of him and some of the other security people with Giannis and the trophies.

Brett is a pretty big guy.  He makes me look short.  It’s interesting that Giannis makes Brett look short.  Awesome pic Brett…thanks for sharing!  You have some nice perks with your job 😊

Nice trophy!  Bucks in 6…Exciting times!

We realize the virus is not gone yet.  In fact, the numbers are going way up rapidly again.  Many of us have either had COVID or have been vaccinated.  We’re leaving wearing a mask up to you to make good decisions.  If you have concerns, please wear a mask.  Either way, please be respectful.  Thank you for being so understanding, cooperative and respectful through this entire pandemic.  I’m thankful we’re getting through it.

One of the most important things you can do is to stay home if you have any symptoms or know you’ve been exposed to someone with the virus.  Please don’t come until your symptoms go away.  Let’s also give each other some space when talking to one another and continue wiping the machines down before and after you use them with disinfectant.  Let’s stay safe!

Ricky Heldt will be here on Wednesday and Friday again this week doing Tai Massage.  Many of you have reported making great progress with chronic pain relief, range of motion, walking better and a new sense of hope.  Please keep in mind that consistency is key.  We need consistency to realize the benefits long term.  That’s why we’re having Ricky here both Wednesday and Friday mornings.  We want you to have long term relief.  Ricky will have a sign up sheet based on first come first served.  You can pick the time slot that works for you.  I highly encourage you to take advantage of Ricky’s Tai Massages each day and sign up for your time slot as soon as you get there.

We had a lot of fun on our bike ride again last Friday morning.  Check out the smiles on this picture as Al is riding with Donna and Laura.  Corbin has a nice smile too! 😊

Diane and Shelly had a fun ride too!  More smiles 😊

The trikes are a really fun and a safe way to get out and ride with friends.  I’m really thankful we have them.  People that normally wouldn’t be able to ride are riding together and having fun.

It looks like we should have nice weather for our Friday morning bike ride again this week.  I hope you’ll join us!

We’ll be meeting Friday morning at 7:00am at Nettesheim Park in Pewaukee.  It’s on the SE corner of Hwy SS and Oak Street.  The GPS address is: N26W27495 Prospect Ave, Pewaukee, WI 53072.  Come a little early so you can get your bike out of your car and be ready to ride as close to 7:00 as possible.  We’ll ride until about 8:45.

If you need me to bring a trike or a tandem for you, please let me know as soon as you can so I can bring them.

If you’d like to ride but don’t know how you’d do it, please let me know.  We’ll do our best to figure out a way to get you riding.  We get pretty creative😊.

The National MS Society’s MS Bike ride is only one week away from this weekend…August 7th.  Our Peppy Pedalers Team is coming along nicely again.

  • We now have 76 people signed up on our team so far.  If you’re not signed up yet, please sign up
  • We have 13 people with MS riding on our team.  To me, that’s amazing!
  • We’ve raised $49,634.00 so far – A huge THANK YOU goes out to all who are fund raising and all who have donated.  We really need to get this MS thing figured out.  Every dollar helps!

The National MS Society funds critical research and programs for all of us living with MS.  Let’s do our part by riding in the ride together and inviting our families and friends to join us.  For all of you who wish they could ride but can’t, we’re riding for you!

Last week, our prayer group was once again…powerful!  I just love the way we share, pray together and witness prayers being answered weekly.  Thanks goes to God and to everyone that joins us.

Our prayer group will be in person at the gym as well as on zoom this week at 11:00am on Wednesday.  We’ll get together and share, talk, listen, give thanks and pray however God leads us.

I encourage you to share a smile with someone.  Perhaps you could give someone a call that you haven’t talked with for a while just to see how they’re doing.  We all could use a little extra love and encouragement during these times.

MS is tough.  Let’s stay calm, focused, healthy, flexible, have faith and learn as much as we can about the challenges of each day as we make good choices.  Better days are ahead.

In God We Trust!
