Yesterday it rained most of the day so I didn’t get my walk in today was dry but cold this morning got my 5 miles in but was a struggle towards the end when I walk the second part I walk 1 1/2 miles away from trail head so I have no choice but to walk the final 1 1/2 my legs hurt but that got better after I got home for an hour maybe that means don’t take a day off.

didnt do much after that tomorrow I need to mow and need to take Marley to vet she is just turning 10 and her right eye does not look too good 210E75CA-80D1-4270-B767-5D0C896CAA53

poor girl is getting old but aside from her eye she is doing good she had a lot of eye trouble when she was younger before I got her so anyhow need to make appointment to have it looked at


Gutter work

We had a good little rain I think it was yesterday and instantly my gutters overflowed good sign they need cleaned, so up I go and they were not too bad except for the end where downspout is I cleaned that and water flowed so big job out of the way, and while I put my ladder away I thought I might as well dive into the exhaust leak on my car and that was not too awfully bad either, the previous owner tightened the nut holding pipe to manifold up but ran out of thread and just left it loose thus creating exhaust leak I simply took nut off put in a spacer and tightened it up and just like that no more exhaust leak


That is about all for today oh I did do my 5 miles this morning not many people on trail today the people I did see were new I guess since school is out must make a difference I don’t know I do know my hike is getting a bit easier been doing 5 miles for 8 days now


Jeep Festival

every year in Butler they have what is called Jeep invasion, I never went as it is Friday afternoon and I always had to get up for work Saturday early, so finally I could go and it was great really had a good time never imagined there were so many Jeeps in the area it was really fun.

not much else going on I am still keeping with my 5 mile walk in the mornings I have not noticed and change but it almost has to be working I need to stay away from scale daily maybe might switch to once a week.


Dreary day

it is surprising what sunshine can do to a person, it was a dreary and overcast morning I didn’t feel like being out there at all let alone do 5 miles I think it was on account of no sun, I made it though this was third day of 5 miles I ran out of water I saved one sip for the last half mile back to truck, I will take an extra bottle with me tomorrow, I walk 1 mile in one direction then come back to where I parked then do 3 the other direction so when I came back to truck after 2 miles then I will grab a fresh water.

this weekend is Jeep fest in Butler I guess the Jeep was invented somewhere up there so it is a big 3 day celebration, I think I will go up Friday all the Jeeps will be parked on Main Street with bands and food trucks, never went before as I had to always wake up at 3:00 am for work in Saturday but this year I am going.

Enjoy Life



Today was my second day of walking a full 5 miles my legs hurt but I guess that is to be expected it should get easier as time goes by I just have to keep up the 5 miles, I don’t see or feel the difference but the scale says I am down 13 pounds but then again when I first started walking I was lucky to do 2 miles so being I am up to 5 it must be making a difference.

paid off my truck and now today am going to shut off my cable tv I rarely watch it and I now have an antenna for local channels and I still have Netflix so I should be all set for entertainment, little chilly this morning but warming up and we are suppose to be getting storms.

Enjoy Life



i did not go for my walk yesterday it rained a good bit of the day so I figured a day off wouldn’t hurt. My neighbor cut down a nasty dead tree that was sort of on both of our property’s , I have lived here for 35 years I think they have been here maybe like 20 maybe a little less anyhow I never talked to the guy just never had the occasion and I am pretty much private person these days, anyhow I went out and we chatted for about an hour he has a nice 70 Nova he restored and of course I showed him my 57s it was a fun day getting to know him he is a really nice guy.

went walking today 4.7 miles my foot was starting to hurt so I cut it short maybe 5 tomorrow, I have been torn as to weather or not to pay off my truck I had the money saved up but kept thinking I should hang on to it but today I pulled the plug and did it, that only leaves me $ 550.00 I savings but will save me $ 315.00 per month so I can save back up.

Enjoy Life



This morning I walked 4.7 miles I thought it was 5 but my phone said 4.7 so a little farther tomorrow I felt pretty good this morning so if it does not rain, tomorrow I will go my first 5 and will just I think keep it at 5 when I lose about another 10 I plan on buying a good mountain bike the trail is 20 miles long so I will switch from riding the bike to walking.

I did not feel like making breakfast so I went down the road to this little dinner and had breakfast it was excellent I had a 3 egg omelet with sausage and cheese. I mowed when I got home but that is all I need to run weed wacker but doubt I will be doing that today just don’t feel like it that is pretty much for today, oh first of month so git my check deposited today that is a good thing was getting a little low on funds.

Enjoy Life,
