I feel really good this morning and have just read several emails encouraging me to keep at it. I do look forward to reading them and appreciate all the good thoughts coming my way. Please keep them coming. I need to see them.
We are through Santa Rosa and have stopped for the night in front of Saint Francis Winery if you know where that is. Very pretty. I see at the clock that I have seven minutes to get to my place on the road. This is going to be a great day. Thanks everyone!
Day 3 is history and we had a much better day than yesterday. I’m feeling better every day and the feet are hurting a little less. I met Chris Smith of the Santa Rosa paper yesterday and he wrote in his column about our Walk. He asked for people to toot their horn if they saw me and they did just that, all day! l even had one family yell at me and say they saw the paper and to keep up the good work. While walking through a small town named Boyes Hot Springs, a guy in a white truck drove by, blew his horn and waved as if he knew me forever. Then, he turned around and parked right in front of me. Not sure what was going on, I keenly kept my eye on him. He came around the truck with a paper in his hand and said, “I read about you.” Well eventually I figured out what was happening and the guy named Mylo shook my hand and asked a few questions. He said I could have the paper and he even took it back to Valda in the RV. What a guy. Things like this really make me feel good and forget my woes.
The terrain l passed today included mile after mile of vineyards. I know I don’t appreciate the beauty as much as I should, but it’s tough to sightsee while keeping one eye on the traffic and the other eye on where I’m walking.
It’s 10:00 now, so I’m going to bed.
