Another year has come and gone
and still we are here to carry on
with living this life that we have chose
in an RV and driving the road
staying in one place for a couple of weeks
or longer if the campground fits
with maybe trails to walk the dogs
for exercise though we do not jog
as a slow pace is what we walk
so, the dogs can smell and sometimes stalk
whatever it is that they smell
and for us all is well.
Me I need to take these walks
to stretch my legs and clear my thoughts
and exercise to keep my health
extend the years and add to the wealth
of living for as many years
not letting them interfere
with doing what I want to do
whatever that is as I have no clue
and ponder about the latest thing
that maybe Mother Naure will bring
wind and weather, rain or snow
who knows which way she will go
in the end it matters not
as we have little control over what is our lot.

That is a beautiful photo. Isn’t the weather wonderful lately. I love these cold nights and sunny days. Of course, it hasn’t prompted me to do anything outside but it’s nice to look out the window.
I did not take either of those pictures but as you say, they are beautiful. The wonders of nature. Time to take a break from the outside work as one thing you can be sure of, it will still be there when you do go out to do it.
All of those dead bushes that need to be cut back will certainly be there in February. Before then I plan not to even look.
Happy New Year!
Thanks and the same to you
Walks are great for both people and dogs! Honestly though, all those walks probably are helping you to age more gracefully than you otherwise would.
I have been an athlete all of my life and only stopped working out when I reached 80. Now the sum total to make up for all those hours in the gym is to try to walk at least more than a mile day.
The fact that you only stopped working out when you reached 80 is impressive. You may not be able to exercise as much anymore, but it sounds like you’ve been able to stay healthier than a lot of people.
It’s been a bit now, but I hope you had a Merry Christmas.
Josh. The body can still work out but the mind is saying other things.
Terre. I sorta gave up on Christmas a while back for different and various reasons but I was Merry enough…
