I want to fit in seats, theater and airplane and I want to be able to run up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial one more time at least.

I have walked across the nation twice that I have recorded and intend to do it again this year.

WG - I just have to let you know that all of your walking inspires me. You work long hours as a nurse, and spend a lot of time with your grandkids. Yet, you take the time to get those walks in. Your walking and the websites you shared help to spark my own walking adventures.

Thanks so much - Naomi (Carebear635) emoticon

Thanks for the goodie. I do enjoy hot cocoa especially when it is a low calorie one.
