From the Files

I was reminded on Wednesday of a vacation Dan and I took in 2014 as I was walking around Lake Kittamaqundi here in Columbia.  It was Senior Fitness Day and our Fitness director had organized social distant activities for us one of which was the walk.

In 2014 Dan and I did a walking vacation through the Cotswolds in England.  Our luggage was transported from inn to inn and we walked.  We averaged 8-10 miles a day, stopping along the way to visit towns, churches, and pubs.  We had marvelous weather - no rain.  

I have written about this trip many times. Just go to the label "Cotswolds" in the sidebar and you'll come up with some of those posts.  Here's the first one that described our first walking day.

But in remembering the trip let me post some random photos here today.

It's good to have memories during this time of no travel.

You Know What?

Again thanks to  Octoberfarm and her Dump Trump post today.

This was a great cartoon except for one thing ...

Trump or tRump as its supposed to be typed can't speak in such a complex sentence.  He'd be saying "Big words. No. Look bad.  Make me. Obama big words. Me stable genius."

George Takei does it well below.

Any Little Bit Will Help

I can't say enough about the importance of voting in November.  

Believe it or not there are those that don't vote especially some moms. has a special campaign to get the vote out.

If you are willing to spend the time writing a note of encouragement and the need to vote on 10 postcards, will mail those postcards to you to do that.  You then mail them back to MomsRising and they will send them out closer to the election in November.

I did this before the Virginia primary and it was super easy.
