I Created a Monster

Woke up to the sound of wind. Strong wind. Darn, no walking today. Didn’t walk yesterday either. It rained all day. I had been walking the town for most of the summer. But about August, I got bored with the same old path each day plus all the barking dogs. I felt like some of them could get loose and “walk” with me. Our town has had a couple of issues with dogs biting passersby and I didn’t want to be come on of those. I decided walking the Stone Arch Trail was safer. See post of August Old Stone Arch Trail. I had been trying to talk hubby into walking with me, with no luck. But when I mentioned the Stone Arch trail and the fact that there are benches along the way that he could sit at, if needed, he agreed. He had been having leg pains so severe that walking to the mailbox and back, a total of a half a block, had become too much for him. Fast forward to the present and he is walking to the Stone Arch and back to the car, for a total of 2 miles. I am amazed and proud of him for hanging in there. Today, I wanted to pass on walking because I HATE Wind but he said he was going to try it. If the wind got too bad he would come home. Okay. Lay the guilt on me. So, I got on my shoes, my jacket, my hat and my mittens and off we went. We made it to the Arch and back. It was windy, very windy in some places and not so bad in others and we walked the two miles.
Like I said, I have created a monster. 

Have a wonderful day,

  1. We have a similar trail where I live. The path follows the route of the old railway. I used to like walking it until I spotted a snake along the way. That was it for me!
