What I want most of all.

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

I love the great outdoors and I use to be able to go on long hikes into the wilderness.

For some time now I have been just too overweight and my arthritis hasn't helped any. Having a total knee replacement in the fall of 2008 put me in the mind maybe those days are behind me. Somehow now I just don't believe that anymore. I am feeling like I can do anything.
. .
Even though my ole buddy Rufus is no longer with me, I am sure my new best bud Autumn, an Australian Cattle Dog, will be up for the challenge. Just as soon as I lose some more weight and she finishes her nap.

    I had a total hip replacement and got my life back. I am doing more (exercise) than I have done in a long time!! Wish I could climb those mountains with you in the picture. I live Ohio....flat, flat, flat!!

    I have a heeler too! Great dogs and they do love their walks and hikes. Ours knows when it is that time of day and whines if we don't respond quickly enough.
