Day 144: Golden Hour

Walking in IllinoisToday I resumed my ‘shortcut’ and came back to US 136 at Table Grove. We then hooked up with Carol & Leonard S. who are Southern Cross techs working in Peoria. We met them over the Internet and on Saturday we met them for real. They came to walk with me and spent the whole day doing so. Valda & I want to thank them for their company, and for a couple of meals they bought but shouldn’t have. Personal to Snuffy & Illene – wish you’d been here with us. It was a fun day and we covered some 12 miles walking together.

Personal to Penny B: Good job getting people to sponsor you for your laps around the Circle. Penny has gotten pledges totaling $50.00 so far. Thanks Penny, it is much appreciated. Also thanks to Martha Ellen T. of Indianapolis for matching our ‘money found’ fund. It too is much appreciated.
