    Please read about Bill’s latest walk with his dog Maggie: … Warm-Heart

    I enjoyed this walk greatly. It is just like being there with you both Bill (and Toby too.)

      It's a nice story, a nice walk, and a nice read. The exercise is good.

      I've missed these walks. However, with that new hip, I'm finding it difficult to keep up with Bill. He's got a lot of pep in his step now. Bill, your sense of observation is always turned on, isn't it? Ever the writer, always open to inspiration and seeing what the rest of us take for granted. These walks are much more than a simple cardio exercise. You're teaching us to observe and take note. Thank you for that. And thank you for allowing me to tag along.

    I always enjoy Bill's walks with his dogs "where the pavement ends and the wonder begins."  Thanks John for featuring this delightful sojourn in Olympia.

      Peggy, I hope you stayed dry. It's a wet mess here today. Thanks for walking along with us. Maggie says hi!

    I'm glad your new hip is doing so well, Bill. I'm sure the dogs are happy, too! I enjoyed reading about your walk with the dogs, and it was interesting to learn a little about your neighbours.

    I am glad to be on a walk again with Maggie. Both of your dogs are adorable, Bill. I am glad you have recovered from your surgery. I enjoyed everything about this walk today.

    Thanks for posting this article, John.

      Thank you, Bill, for taking us a walk with Maggie. It felt wonderful and enjoyable to be with you and her. I am glad you have mostly recuperated from your hip surgery. All the best.

      Thank you John for sharing this post.

      Thanks to both of you for joining us.  The more the merrier on these rainy walks. I sure hope it warms up the next time we take a stroll together.

    Always enjoyable to go along for a walk with Bill and his dogs.  I’ll bet they’re mighty happy to have you back on the road again.  Thank you, John, for sharing this.

      They seem to be happy, Bill, although family did a good job of subbing for me while I was down.  Take care my friend, and Happy Holidays to you.

    It's great to see you out walking Toby & Maggie.
    Hard to believe you are doing 5 Miles in only 6 weeks.

    Toby sounds like a joy with all that playfulness.   I imagine she entertained you during your time recuperating.
    They say laughter is the best medicine.

    As for Maggie, she stands her ground with the other doggies to protect you.  She is your fearless companion.

    Sounds like she's a people person & a bit of a ham.  I'm sure I would adore her and Toby.

    I think you are becoming a dog whisperer.

    You know what Maggie is thinking.

    Enjoy each moment.

      Either a dog whisperer, Brenda, or an old man with way too much time on his hands, and a very colorful imagination. lol

    It's good to hear that you have recovered and doing well. I really enjoyed your walk. But Maggie should learn some socializing from you. Lol big_smile I don't think that you are a reserved person. But obviously, you know yourself better than anyone else.

      Moon, you should see me in a room with four other people. I blend into the background and nobody hears from me.  Most definitely, I am shy and reserved. I'm afraid I'm not much fun at a party. smile
