only 1000-1100 people in town, can’t be too far. I sat we pull up a kurb and wait. for Amanda to come or Norman to let us in.

I know that Amanda is the Princess of RAGBRAI, (even if I don’t know if it’s a hereditary or honorary title), but what is this ‘Shrine’ you are talking about. Is there a ‘fridge and cold beverages involved? How about Pie???

Will there be “Amanda’s Famous Cinnamon Rolls” when we roll into the driveway?

I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting the princess in person, although I’m pretty sure I saw her dancing on a bar with a pole 2 years ago.
Or maybe she was just waving to her adoring constituents after they placed her on a high pedestal with her “staff”. It’s all a bit fuzzy…..

Was the pole Jeff Lebowski? He’s a great dude. Never knew him to be much of a dancer, but a heck of a bowler.

It would be great if Norman could take a batch out of the freezer and pop them into the microwave, just for us!!!!!!!

You guys will have to swing by my house for breakfast Friday morning. I’m just a bit off the route for that day. The Brewhaha bus will be at my house. Plenty of good coffee, eggs, and perhaps even cinnamon rolls will be available. With as short as that day is, we probably won’t take off until after noon.

I will work on training Norman. I will warn you he is a slow learner but if there’s food involved, it could be another story . . I will keep you posted.

Princess, a few of us (definitely me) are a bit on the slow side. All Norman has to be is a little quicker than us. I think Norman is safe in that respect!!!!
