So we go from 70's on Friday and Saturday to freezing rain today!  After about an hour of walking I had wet feet, ice on my hat, ice on the back of my jacket and dodging the wash from traffic.  Thank you ever so much to all (the few) drivers who move over a lane as they head towards me, the courteous thing to do when one encounters a disabled vehicle, an emergency vehicle, a cyclist or a pedestrian.  For those who observe the protocol, THANK YOU!!!, for those who are ignorant of it, just watch and learn THEN move over!!!, especially when it is raining.  As Tom Hanks said as Forrest Gump, "That's all I have to say about that".  I was accompanied the last two miles by Steve C of the RV park who seems to think he is a "fat man", my experience is that of a man with a vast life of experiences who is embarking on a more healthy lifestyle.  Steve, it was a pleasure, see you tomorrow.


When the day was over we had walked 25.5 miles (the last two joined by Steve from the RV park) (41.1290 km's), walked 50,697 steps and picked up $0.31 in change.  The findings for the day: 1 single blade folding pocket knife, 1 nail set/punch, 1 black-handled very rusty needle nose pliers, 1 10" 1/2" wrench, 5 sockets, 2 dimes, 1 nickel and 6 pennies.  Assuming we aren't encased in ice tonight, the forecast for Tuesday is a duplicate of today.  Cheers!!!

Good to see you are making good progress on your walk. If it is of any consulation, the Seahawks lost also as well as the Broncos.
Keep up the good work.

Glad to finally catch up on the blogs. Sorry about the ice, but you sure did well walking in spite of it. Hurrah for you. Thanks Valerie for remembering the gratuity for the free meal. In Art's figuring, I am sure it was generous. He has a formula that I am sure he followed LOL
You are both moving along quite famously. Love the MOM
