Readin' and Thinkin'

Not much new to report today. Still have the cold. Just can't get rid of this hacking cough.

We are on the downhill slide to spring. The weather is cooperating very nicely.

Been reading some other journals lately. I am going to follow a lady who is hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. She is not afraid to do it alone. Now this is one adventurous lady. She is young and has a keen sense of adventure despite those around her who have tried to discourage her she is forging on to make her destination Katahdin, Maine. Now that it has become a reality those same people have rallied behind her to be her support group. May the four winds blow her safely to Maine.

A couple of years ago a young man came into the restaurant where I worked in Tennessee. He was going on the exact same trip. I also followed his journal all the way to Maine. He made it and had a fantastic time. I also had a fantastic time just keeping up with him and lived that trip right aloong with him. It was fun.

I guess what I am trying to say is that if we have a dream and work toward that goal it will eventually become reality. I think there is a lesson learned here.

I am putting the Appalachian Trail on my "Bucket List" to hike at least a portion of it.

And with that said "May the four winds blow me safely out the door to work in the morning".

That's it for today.(My father said that)

u do not yet know how to put links in your blog, you can still printout the URL so your readers can manually enter the address. I already know Howard & Linda's website but I would really like to know the URL for the young lady who is attempting to hike the Appalachian Trail.
