5) Work up a good appetite for a group lunch (TBA)

I sure hope you will join us, Mr. Durango. I hiked it Monday evening in exactly one hour. It's a good workout, just the kind you like. I also stirred up a giant owl where the wild things hang out.

So far, about 7 women and 4 men have signed up.

Durango said...

Sounds fun. Sign me up and I'll try and make it. Are the 7 women wild women?

Don Young said...

Yes. Are you current on your rabies shots?

Durango said...

I haven't had a rabies shot in a long time, so I guess I'm not current. I'll wear protective clothing.
