July 7th to 10th Friday Follow Up
Well, technically this Friday Follow Up should have happened LAST Friday, but my internet went kaput while I was trying to work on my blog. I spent much time trying to rectify that, and by the time I had, Friday had finished and I was waaaay past deadline. So…sorry about that and here are my catch-up posts.
Um….Gosh. That happened twelve days ago. You don’t actually expect me to remember, do you? Crap. I should have taken notes. I don’t test well. Well, I do, but that’s when I study for it and I didn’t study because I didn’t know I was going to be tested. *sneaking a look back at my spreadsheet where I keep my mileage* Um…
I did NOT remember to take my camera with me. That I know. And I didn’t go far. I think most of my walking involved taking the dog out.
According to my spreadsheet, I walked a total of 1.78 miles.
Dang, you people are relentless about this testing thing, aren’t you? I believe I walked mostly in the evening this night, up and between Stark and Glisan, if I remember correctly.
Sunday the 8th I walked a total of 5.3 miles.
Another slow day. No pics, unfortunately. I’ve been having too many of those slow days lately.
I walked 1.89 miles.
Well, okay. I’m going to much better on this test question, because I actually have notes. That is, I took a shit-ton of videos with my little flip camera, which I then did the painstaking work of pulling snapshots out of and creating a nice little photo album.
I walked with my husband to his dialysis appointment on Tuesday night. After that, I walked around the neighborhood and checked out some things I had seen before, as well as ventured into some new territory.
I don’t know if you remember the post I did on May 29th, but I took some pics of a stone sculpture/alter that seemed to me a community art project? I talked with the owner of the property, and he said it is constantly evolving. And since I knew I was going to be walking close to there anyway, I deliberately detoured to go by the house so I could see if the property had changed. Boy had it!
I also found a passage from the Declaration of Independence scrawled on the sidewalk on this same property. I took a shaky video of it (no tripod and I was walking, so it is what it is, lol). See it here. It seemed like a good thing to have written; it is July, the month we celebrate our country’s independence, after all!
Poetry reigns in this neighborhood, as well. I found yet another poetry station.
As for new sights, I’m pleased to say I’ve found even older sidewalks than the 1904 built sidewalk that I found before. I’m always keeping my eyes open for older date stamps.
The following doggone cracked me up!
I took tons of photos, so I think I’ll go ahead and put them in a nice little gallery below for y’all to enjoy.
Tuesday I walked 5.75 miles.
