So, all my plans about getting in shape are going to the hot place. It’s a good thing  I’ve been here numerous times before, so I know this too will pass, and I will keep trudging on.

Right now I have a horrendous summer cold, with major coughing fits – I guess there is crap in my lungs – in fact I can feel it. I’ve been way sicker than this, but am going home from work and spending some serious couch time to try to get over this as soon as possible.

This is what I'm looking forward to!

I’ve spent all the money my health insurance allows for this year, and more – right now I over $1,600 for my E.R. visit in May, so I won’t be going to the doctor’s, unless I find myself at death’s door, thank you politicians. Maybe I should go to a Republican political rally and pass around my germs . . .

Somebody backpacking somewhere in the Cascades!

 Anyway, I’m planning a day hike next Sunday, to scope out the trail conditions on a backpack trip planned for the week after that. We’ve had so much snow this winter in the Cascades, it will be very late in the summer before the snow melts out in most of the trails.  This trail faces the South, so it is melting out right now. We will see!
