Small Town

We've been walking at the mall every day that we don't go to the gym. It's very pleasant there, and you're out of the weather. In a small town like T.C. when you're at the mall you're bound to run into friends and acquaintances.

Ron W. and his wife Joyce walk the mall around 4 days a week, and it's fun to run into them. Ron and I were classmates from Grade 1 at Union Street School until graduating from Central High, so we have a lot to talk about.

Today we met up with cachers Bird's Eye View and Bluejay Team - a lot to talk about there, too. Then the best part - Gerri F. walked in and we had old home week. When I volunteered at Munson, I worked at the Information Desk with Gerri for 5 or 6 years, and we became quite good friends. I haven't seen her for 11 1/2 years so we had a lot of catching up to do after the hugging was over. She's had some sad times - but we had a great talk and I was so glad to see her again.

At the gym, Carol R. showed up. She hasn't been there for months, and it was a real treat to see her and know that she's ok. She's on oxygen, so we were all kind of concerned when she stopped coming. She just stopped in to say hi. She now goes to the "Lung" gym to improve her breathing.
