On Tuesdays, I attend a much smaller class, Robin's Strength and Tone at the Y. My Facebook friends have already seen this picture, but I couldn't resist because, as one of my blogging friends tactfully pointed out, I am a HAM! Another participant took this picture yesterday while I hammed it up with some of my friends in the class. The other one in red and the person next to her have been introduced to me but I've forgotten their names. In the dark shirt is Jackie, and then Cheryl, Robin herself, my friend Jean and on the far right is Robin's mother. I think Mom is almost 80. Robin's class is at 9:00 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I am usually hiking with the Seniors on Thursdays.
Now I understand the power of Facebook and blogging. Yesterday I received literally dozens of well wishes for my birthday on Facebook: from family members, skydiving buddies from my past as well as the present, people I've known over the years from my workplace, and people I've met from all over the world. It is truly wonderful. And then there are my new blogging friends who are already very special in my heart. I would name them but I am afraid I'd miss somebody.
Tomorrow I'll be hiking up to Raptor Ridge in the Chuckanuts with the Seniors. It is a new hike for me, and the weather looks like it will be gorgeous, so I'll be posting those pictures on here. In the meantime, I am feeling like one of the luckiest people in the world. And oh yes, I would be remiss if I didn't mention another major blessing in my life: my husband whom I have given the moniker of "Smart Guy" on this blog. It fits.:-)
