Sam (looking over the many flavors of Blue Bell on sale): sea salt caramel?

Peggy: Sounds good

Peggy (looking at Sam’s frazzled face): So you had a rough day, too?
Sam: Yes. But at least I got something done at horseback riding.


Random Thoughts from Possum Kingdom 20K: The Reprise

April 12, 2014

Run long enough in the woods and the flowers that were budding on the way out will be in full bloom on the way home. When you study the trail map, follow the arrows and let Siri help, a 20K is a real 20K. But after the runners spread out and you are alone in the […]
