About Me

I am beyond vexed that the lottery has not made me a winner. I am not greedy for millions ~my needs are simple: good books, better wine, and a new vehicle.

The Herd of Unwashed

17 years ago, at the age of 23, I was hiking the Applachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. It doesn't feel that long ago. This is the time of year the hikers come through our town and if I see them in the store or laundrymat I ask them if they need a ride to the post office, back to the trailhead, etc. I tell them what year I hiked, and then I feel really old. Sigh.

omg it doesn't seem that long ago at all!!! I drive them around too, or give them money if they've got cardboard signs in front of the Chopper of Prices. I love being able to tell them, I have a friend sho hiked from Georgia to Maine! Wow, that means it was even longer ago that you tripped across the pond! Girl!
