Just finished my workout. Day 78 of my exercise program. Oh, wait this is only day 5! Damn! Well it seems like day 78. I reconnected with a friend from high school over the last couple of days. We have exchanged a couple of emails and just a quick over view of what we’ve been doing. She’s been married for 43 years and the pictures I saw of her on her Facebook page she hasn’t changed all that much. I enjoyed her Mom and Dad. If my feeble memory is correct her Mother and my Mother helped with Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts. Her Dad (I really liked him) was a farmer and my Dad (who ran a garage) repaired his machinery. Great fun connecting with friends from those days.
I grew up in a very small town of only 450 people. Since I delivered the paper to the town (twice a day) I knew everyone very well. In the Winter time people would invite me in for a cup of hot chocolate and cookies to warm up. Is it any wonder why I have constantly struggled with my weight. Every once in a while my Dad would have to come looking for me because the paper route that should have only taken 90 minutes usually would stretch into 2 to 3 hours. I could write a very long journal about my experiences as a paperboy. I started when I was 9 and still carried the papers my senior year. I learned a lot about people and myself as well.
Anyway my original point was to say that since it was such a small town everyone knew pretty much everyone else. Growing up I used to say that if someone sneezed half the town would blow their nose. 🙂 It was a great experience and I will always cherish those days and all the wonderful friends I had
Okay now that I’ve completely forgotten what it was I was going to write about this morning I’m out of time. I had some lament about my recent photography being only about eagles, Josh and barns. I was looking back through my recent posts and decided I’ve got to get a change of scenery or subjects to shoot. Not that I don’t love shooting Josh, eagles, and barns but I’ve got to expand in areas other than my waist. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Wednesday. Happy Hump Day and be careful. Great to reconnect with you Melinda.
