Happy 4th of July...

Summer has come (June 21) and I didn't make it down to 221...I'm hovering around 230 because I keep hovering around deserts...oh well, time to regroup after the fourth and push forward. Started working again on a 95003 project so my free time has been drastically cut and I'll have to avoid the southern fried lunches and pizzas they serve at work...

Gina and I went to the Smokies for the fourth - Coleman Family reunion. We went hiking around Greenbrier. I hiked to Ramsey Cascade yesterday...it's 8 miles round trip and you climb 2100 feet. It was graded as "moderate" but challenging enough for me. I did some trail running but the incline was tough and after the first mile and a half the trail had far too many roots and large rocks to try to run. That was a good thing - I'm not a runner! Anyway, up and back in three and one half hours...only spent about ten minutes at the falls...

Maggie had her fifth knee surgery last week. Hopefully this will reduce the pain and help her get around better. Miles went to Bonaroo again this year but is back now trying to sell cars. I'm hoping and praying that something comes up for Sally...

It's nap time...

You can still make 221...and I know you will. The Smokies were nice, weren't they? Too bad my knee was blown out or I wouldda had to show you how to hike those 2100 feet!

Or not.

I hope this takes care of Maggie's knee.
