|So this is today's Saga. we decided we needed a few groceries |
so we were going to walk to Walmart. Before we got out of
the park cookie decided she was going to hitchhike so we
could get a ride there. Most of the people leaving we're going
to the same square we were because that's where they all go
for breakfast and to shop. But she made a big mistake when
she stuck out her thumb. she was smiling so everybody
thought it was funny and were laughing at us, hence no
ride. So we walked the mile there which was no problem.
After shopping, we went to the Sunflower Cafe and had
breakfast, then to the bus stop because we were going
to take the bus home as our groceries were kinda heavy,
especially cookies bag of navel oranges. But we were
waiting for the bus, Ellen Ylitalo, and no bus came. we
would have had to wait one more hour so we got on our
imaginary horses carrying our bags of groceries and
started walking home with many rests in between. As we
were limping up to our house the neighbor guy said
anytime you want to go to Walmart just tell us and we'll
give you a ride. NOW he tells us! we are tired but we're
happy to be home in fact were too tired to Waddle to the
pool to jump in and cool off. what a day. (Hey, I said we're
happy to be here and VERTICAL!)

This is what I meant by " flocking"...someone's birthday or
anniversary....they "plant" a pile of flamingos in the front
of their Ho me...the sign says "your Home has been flocked".
I thoroughly enjoyed this morning's walk...they're
having yard sales...."heavy traffic"....bikes, walkers,
motor scooters, golf carts, and a few cars...seems
the whole community is on the move. Lost cookie at
the first block and she's not back yet. I'm sitting on
the deck w a cuppa, watching and helloing....fun in the sun!

|Today we were going to go swimming in the pool so we went|
there and they were having an exercise class in the water so
we joined them. Right after there was an aerobics water class
so we stayed and did that too until we got so tired we had to
crawl out of the pool and rest. We walked home then and later
decided to go to the library. We walked one way to the library
and then we walk back to the main pool where the shuffleboard
court was and we played shuffleboard for an hour, walked
back to our house. And that was almost 1 mile of walking
besides playing shuffleboard and exercising in the water. So
we were absolutely bushed. We were groaning and moaning
in the evening and it felt good to go to bed but what fun.
