SO good to hear from you, and thanks for the comments on my blog! I don't know when that Paris trip will happen - probably not til I retire - there are so many places I want to go - Paris, London, York, and many places in Ireland. Nor do I know where the money will come from - but one can hope, right? And plan, of course.
All the best with the exercise. I have been doing well,but I have a rotten cold right now, so I don't exercise til that is gone.
Meanwhile - keep walking. Although I imagine out where you are, it's still pretty snowy, right? 800 days ago
