Another Visit With Friends

Bob and Lindsay spent last night here at Lathrop State Park on their way to a weekend gathering in Westcliffe. They knew we were here and we knew they were coming, so we agreed to pool our food and share a grill. We laughed, talked, shared and ate for nearly six hours yesterday. Our conversation went on till the sun was gone and the mosquitoes were out in force, so we finally brought some lawn chairs inside the RV to continue our visit.

We have chosen to live on the road in our RV full-time. We don't focus on spending time with the new people we meet. We are really quite private and quiet people--introverts. After working careers that put us with people a whole lot, we enjoy this privacy. However, once in a while, it is so good to be with people we have known for a long time and who really know us. It is good to share memories and experiences with people who understand where we have been. And when they are RVers who understand our current life style, it is even better. It was a great evening.

On a different note, it has been over five weeks since my knee surgery. For at least two weeks, I have been able to do all the walking I wanted to. Last week, I jogged four steps and said, "No, I'm not ready for that." But so far this week, I have run 1/4 mile on Wednesday and 1/2 mile today. Granted, it was in intervals of 100 or 200 steps, but it was running. My knee is doing fine. My knee may be up to a three mile run before my heart and lung capacity are up to snuff. But it is really good to get back to running.
