Even though I drop in to mybloggers every once in a while, I haven't blogged. Red's update inspired me.
It's been a very busy summer. For me, it's golf 5 days a week, yard and garden work, firewood gathering, reading, etc. Still jogging. I'm "in training" for a 5k run next weekend (Aug 24). I could be the oldest person in the field (70). Doctor said I was good to go.
Family okay. Father still kicking at 95. One (of two) sister beat breast cancer.
My oldest daughter from Honduras was here this summer, with family. Always nice to see her.
Second oldest (38) is expecting her first child Oct. 1. Mixed race, but I'm happy for her (Sac. Calif).
Third oldest daughter (Emily) is EXTREMELY busy with the farm life, raising 2 kids (4 and 1), working part time (dental hygienist). Their "organic" vegetable farm has exploded to nearly 40 acres (my land). Check 'em out at Silverthorn-farm.com (Rossville IN). I've helped in one way or another all spring and summer. It's been hard, but fun.
I never hear from my 30 year old son from Santa Cruz CA., but I think he's doing fine.
I didn't do any "wilderness volunteer" trips this year, since I was saving up for "hiking the Greek islands" with Sierra Club Sept 23-Oct 6. Looking forward to that, of course. I just hope all my duties here at home can be put on hold.
By the way, no women or pets in my life. Still "solitaire"!
So long for now.
