KEEP IT COMING!!!

All I need is for you people to keep the comments coming and I might be able to climb Mt. Everest!  This week I had a really sweet friend tell me that this hiking trip might be just the incentive I need to get back into shape.   YES---YES INDEED  She knew exactly how to get me going----THE TRUTH HURTS!  SO I am now on a mission to get into good enough shape to hike for a week in the mountains---I've got a LONG way to go---BUT all you have to do is keep waving those red flags in my face and I will   CHARGE!

To make SURE that I follow through with this commitment---I bought my back pack today---it has to carry gear & food for a week's trip!  I spent a couple of hours trying on packs and learning the ropes of how to pack and use the backpack.  The weight is carried on your hips---I am just thankful to get the weight off of my shoulders which is where I was carrying it while training with my day pack.  I chose red for ease of finding my body when I fall off the ledge of jump off the cliff--which ever comes first.

It is fitting that I gave my backpack a name---since we are going to get to know each other really well over the next few months---I named her "BB" which are initials for a name.  Guess the name and you win the fabulous prize of a year's free reading of my blog!

Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
