Thinking back to Dr. Suess's book, Oh The Places You'll Go, I think about doing one called, "And the Stories They'll Tell" and just record where I walk and who I meet and the stories they share with me. Today the lady I met only did 1 lap, but told me she's lost 90 lbs. since the first of last summer and that is with a hip replacement!!!! Would be cool to remind me, and then I would probably find out people's names.. Today she asked me my name. She shared about her MIL who took a stroke 3 years ago and is still alive, despite doctor's thinking she was done for, but she hasn't spoken a word since and her writing doesn't make sense....having just read The STone Angel, brings a lot of things to mind...

Buddy and I walked 4 laps, so with walk to and from, that makes about 7 km.

Cold, dreary and hard to get in the mood, but as usual, glad we did.

Did knit one more baby hat last nite, so 17 in total now. Tropical storm seems to be on the way, guess that explains the weather.....

    That is an awesome story to lose 90lbs with a hip replacement. Probably could make an interesting book! Great walk! emoticon
