My mother had an expression she would use if she found us hanging around the house too much: “Get out and blow the stink off.”
If hanging around the house can make you stink, many of us are now close to down- right putrid.
There isn’t much more to say about this virus lock-down. We’re all talked out about it, I think. Some areas are starting to see rebellions of one sort or another, but, so far, these are, for the most part, peaceful and sensible. People want to work and be with their families and see their friends and pray together. No one wants to get or give the cooties.
This past week, The Redhead and I did try to get some of the stink off. We drove and walked around Staunton and yesterday, Saturday, we joined several of our friends for what was a real treat. It seems that even this virus can bring unexpected blessings.
So, here are a few pics of our lock-down life here in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Come on along.
I enjoyed your photos and ability to “get the stink off” too! Keep it up and soon we will be through this.
Until walking the Blue Ridge I hadn’t realized just how stiff the old knees had gotten. Hope to get them a bit more limber by walking both the South River trail in Waynesboro and Gypsy Hill. Really looking forward to getting back to “better than normal”.
Bill Lovely pictures of a delightful friendly outing. I wish I could have shared this with you in person. Thanks
Yes, but if you remember our old walks in Jax, I still like to stop, smell the roses and appreciate the beauty all around. For my fellow walkers, I think I was more like an old Army mule…needing a little prodding to keep up! Hope to see you soon.
Love this post and all of the wonderful pictures. How lucky are you and Deb to be able to walk the Blue Ridge with No Cars!!!! Once in a lifetime moment.
