Decision time and as Yogi Berra said "When you come to a fork in the road...TAKE IT!", so I did just that, east on route 2 towards Grand Island and Hastings our next stop...we started the day just outside of Ansley, NE...while I was walking I got an email from my friend Joe, suffice it to say there was not a cloud in the sky the sun washing and for some reason my face was all wet...Joe, you have to careful what you put in emails as gullible people just might believe the things you write, the things you said are a gift, YOU are a gift!!!, very best wishes to you, my friend, THANK YOU!!!..each day I walk I dedicated that day to a specific individual, today I walked for Carla...after the email from Joe I read something from Carla, the town of Ansley must have thought a real nutcase was wandering through town!!! I had to lean into a rather strong headwind (20+ mph), I know Carla has been leaning into her life or quite sometime and a little breeze will hold me back!?!?!?...experiences like that tend to sober me up in a rather big hurray...Carla you are a gift to me!!!, all my best to you and the family!!! that was the tone for the day, wonderful people in my life when Julie Toline, News Director of radio stations KBBN 95.3 FM and KCNI 1280 AM called me to do an interview, sure I am the guy wearing long johns under his shorts, wearing yellow wandering down the road...the results of that interview can be found at ,more tissues!!! mile post 313 I called it a day with 20.2 miles (32.5806 km's) with 42,398 steps...findings for the day: 1 hitch pin clip, ! quarter and 1 penny...wildlife sightings: 1 deer...Joe, tomorrow is for you...cheers!!!

well Art, I guess I do not know everything about computers. I have been trying to reach Ellen because if anyone could find you another driver for next month, she could. so I had a few hundred spaces to write a story, which I did, but I had to put in a picture so I choose the one of me in the wind holding onto your sign, but do you know how to 'browse' a picture? I can send zillians of pictures from Picasa but they would not let me. I do not know how to 'browse' a picture waaaaaah waaaaahhh! and they would not accept it without a picture so I ended up losing the whole thing. ;-( I was sure that Ellen Degeneres could find you a driver. I have not given up, but that story has gone Poof even tho' I minimized it. If you hear from Ellen, I am the cause of it but it said it would not send without a pictures and I had no picture. Sorry. Send Carla my love. I do not know her but you have talked about her to me and I do pray for her too. Love love and more love Mom
