Well, I went for my hike with my retired lady friends this morning. Wow, I almost had to quit early on them, but, I was buggered if I was going to let the ladies (20 yrs my senior, mostly) outdo me. lol
We walked a groomed trail, through somebodys back 40. It was windy, and cold, but, lovely. We saw all sorts of animal tracks.
Afterwards we went to a local pub where we had wonderful home made munchies, and I had a guiness. Now I'm beat. lol
I did the last of the trek without paying much attention to my surroundings, I just watched the snow in front of me, so I wouldn't step off the snowmobile trail, and go through the snow. THAT was tiring. The poor dears kept asking if I was alright, so, I had to keep answering, to allay their fears, that I was gonna keel over on the trail. lol
They are gradually getting used to NOT asking how I am all the time, as I usually just say I'm great, how are you. If I need help, I'm not too proud to ask for it. So, I prefer that people wait 'til I ask for help. I don't want their sympathy, jsut their friendship.
I never would have met these wonderful women, had I not become 'ill'. So, good things come from tough times, too. Or so I feel.
Oh, and here too. lol Thanks for meeting you people.
