Friday started out nice and pleasant, however right about high noon it started to sprinkle a wee bit so I climbed into the Jeep to wait out the sprinkles.  Well about 12:08 it went from sprinkle to deluge!!!  After consulting weather.com I determined that the game would be called due to rain.  Sure enough it rained HARD for the balance of the day and on into the night.  Great weather if you are a frog or a duck!

The abbreviated day so 7.6 miles (12.2581 km's) with 14,967 steps.  Due to the short day (lack of opportunity) no coins were rescued from the road today.  Than ended a streak of picking up at least one coin going back to December 8, 2012 when I came up empty handed.

Today I was going to walk in honor of L B Baggett and his "Lovie Dovie" of 57 years.  They got today's meager mileage and I shall walk for them tomorrow as well.  Looks like we dodged the bulk of the real nasty weather and just have to put up with a wee bit of rain.  See ya'll down the road...cheers!!!
