Best Days of the Year

10K on the indoor track this morning.
When I start to run over there, my whole body protests: What are we doing here, anyway? And I put one foot in front of the other and and say, "OK gang, let's get going. This is supposed to be good."

But today.. TWO HOURS short of sleep... It felt great to run.. pleasant, even.
Sweet Pea and I did our usual walk/run... but today, we did it in pretty good time for us. And it felt good... on the 'round and 'round and 'round indoor track!

The myeloma test results at Mayo Clinic yesterday were encouraging: when we're talking myeloma, "plateau" is worth a celebration.

In a day or two, he will have the complete (good!) results posted.

At Mayo Clinic in Rochester, if you have a wait between appointments, you can always go over to Silver Lake and see about a million Canadian Geese. I mean about a million.. this is just a tiny sampler.

...a few mallards.

Glad the results are encouraging. Beautiful pictures, those Mallards look lonely among all those geese.

Good news at the track and the clinic. And I thought the geese would fly south for the winter but obviously not!

Great news, Sunshine! Yeah, Don!

I lived about four years in Toronto, so I know a lot about Canadian geese. ;-) And a few summers ago, we happened upon a large flock strutting along the banks of the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They were everywhere. I know many consider them to be a nuisance, but I think they are majestic.
