What a gorgeous day for a walk!  Sadly the beauty of the day was overshadowed by the passing of a wonderful individual, wife and partner to Jeff and mother to two young girls. Today I walked in Carla's memory and in support of Jeff and their girls.   Even though this excursion is  "The Walk of Life", I seem to deal with a great deal of death and dying.  Many things in life I do not understand nor comprehend, death and dying is one of the more significant ones.  Male-female relationships is another.  Got all my bro-mances covered but the male-female thing totaly eludes me.  Walking through an urban area is NOT conducive to a "spiritual" experience.  At least I have yet to discover the secret.  I focus on turns, traffic and finding places for my support vehicle driver to "land" that I quickly loose touch with just what I am doing out here.  I suppose that in and of itself may be another (of many) reason to be out here.  As much of a "city mouse" that I may be, I relish and look forward to the quiet times.  Thanks to the various veterans that I chatted with today.  Charles you and I outta go to Washington with a big shovel and started cleaning that place out.  It sounds like we both have had experience shoveling what they put out!!!  Mr. Bishop (ooppss I forgot your rank!) thank you for your service.

After following route 90 for a while we made a south turn on route 27.  We ended the day on the corner of highway 27 south and Mt. Sinai Road.  The urban tally was 22 miles (35.4839 km's), with 44,349 steps and $0.39 in change.  The findings for the day: 1 1/2" deep socket, 1 quarter and 14 pennies.

A special shout-out to my brother Victor and Michael Gardner.  Just put our "couch-time" on my tab!!!

See ya'll down the road.  Cheers!!!
