Thank you, Sue

I had a wonderful evening at Sue’s. Thank you again.

I forgot to mention that I acquired a couple of injuries yesterday.

  1. I fell down to the stairs at Sue’s place. I didn’t hurt myself, but I do have some carpet burn on the underside of my forearm.
  2. Yesterday was a warm day and I do have some butt chafing. I doctored it with some Butt Butter (that is really the name of it) and it seemed fine today. Although today was a much cooler day. Tomorrow’s temperatures should be cool again so it should give things time to heal, until it gets warm again.

I walked through fields of what I later learned to be rape seeds for canola oil. The fields were beautiful and flat.

My  achilles is still bothering me some. I made it to where I planned to stop for the day at 2 pm and debated about moving on since it was so early and a really nice day, but decided to play it safe and not overdo things. I don’t want this to turn into some type of achilles tendonitis.

I saw a small turtle sunning himself on the trail this morning. I also had two squirrels race across the path in front of me. As well as some cows in a pasture.

I’ve been hiking in a bubble of hikers that I have seen on a regular basis. There names are MIX, GOLF, LUNA, SPICE, SOUL FLOWER, CHIN MUSIC, JOE GUINNESS, TWO TIME, HOOTIE, SNOW WHITE, GRAPEVINE and BUZZ CUT.

  1. Hi to Mix, Soulflower and Buzzcut! I spoke to Chuck “No Doubt” on the phone today. He’s safe and sound back at home in Florida

    I too hope that Achilles settles down.
