Day 50: Not done yet!


I had a tearful goodbye to my friend Pat who came to visit me in Marianna.  Then we pedaled out to Quincy, Florida, a moderate 54 mile ride with lots of rolling hills, which keep you on your toes. But even more alarming was the dog that showed up to chase my buddy and me.  Hey!  We are *not* in Louisiana or Mississippi!  Yikes!  You have never seen someone pull out their whistle as fast as I did on the chase. 1 rona – 0 dog!!!!! Moral of the story is, we are not finished with this journey, and I must keep focused !!!

So my last blog was late because I lost all yahoo connections and could not read or send emails for I think the last 24 hours so when I got to Quincy, I called Yahoo and was on hold for 60 minutes only to get a nice young man, Chris, and after 45 minutes, he helped me reconnect with a new password, etc, and here I am!  Another trial, and I won.  Another lesson in patience, and I won!!!!
Since I am writing this in the laundry room, and my clothes are dry, I will say “till tomorrow “!
With appreciation–and a finish in sight!!– thank you.

    Wow! This journey of yours is something else! I look forward to your blogs every day as if I am in the middle of the best book I have ever read. As excited as I am for you to get back home safe and sound, I sure will miss my dily entertainment and inspiration.
