    Pentagenarians & Beyond: W/B 9/12

    We used to be able yo just show up for blood draws especially early like 7 am but since COVID we need appointments. Hardly anyone wants 7 am though so I still luck out. Worked around house today. We get some incredibly fierce weeds here. Tumbleweeds are Russian thistle. The plant dies in fall...

    We did a hike this morning in the park. don't listen to people who say september is a good time to go because summer crowds are gone. they're not! intentionally picked an off trail hike right inside the park boundary to avoid traffic jams. a wise choice as it turned out. very very busy yet...

    We mountain biked this morning. tried a new place that's close by but up a pretty nasty road. we rode for about an hour but it was just too gusty/windy. DH got blown off his bike a couple times, I was already walking at the time. it will be OK on a better day. it's in a wildlife refuge so on...

    Cathy a lot of eastern Washington is similar to northern Idaho and a lot of Montana and plenty of other places in attitude. Masking, distancing, vaccinating not a priority for most people there. Spokane is a good size city, Coeur d'alene Idaho is not far across the border. Spokane has big...

    That sounds difficult to deal with Carolyn. hope his docs can get him tuned up right away. I had occasional periods of losing consciousness due to an electrical cardiac issue. that's how I ended up with a pacemaker 15 years ago . if there's no warning and you lose consciousness...

    All good on our trip so far. we have to deal with northern idaho which is "covid central". few do the right thing to protect each other, and mask up, distance, and vaccinate. their hospitals are overflowing and military has been called in to help plus they are sending people to...

    We rode again this morning, 2 hrs around 20 miles. pleasant morning 70 ish and breezy. cathy some people self teach, pick up rock climbing on their own. A class is best to learn climbing safely. most climbing is done in small groups so it's a way to meet other people with similar...

    not doing anything so far today. we were planning on MT this week but now looks like the weekend. the kind of outdoor things we enjoy are hampered by continuing smoke. so sad how this all took place with the awful fires. and this is not even the "fire season" in CA yet whatever...
