Jes walkin' along, mindin' my own bizness

Yep, I'm doin' my best Sarah Palin.  The more I hear of her the more I like her.  She's a down-to-earth woman who is learning, learning, learning.  I hope that America gives her and McCain a chance to show what they can do.

Now, on a different subject.  Yesterday I took a walk here in Fairfield, CA and I'm so much slower than I used to be.  My only knees protest at every step and the 12 minute mile I used to be able to walk has turned in to a 15 minute half-mile.  

One thing I really like while walking along the sidewalk is how the city keeps all the bushes and trees trimmed off along the sidewalk.  Everything is cut of evenly so that nothing protrudes out over the sidewalk to impede your walking.  I wish that my city in Oregon would enforce the policy they have whereby the property owners are supposed to keep the sidewalk area cleared.  Too often we have to step out into the street to avoid trees and bushes.  So, thanks Fairfield City Crews for keeping things cleared off for the walkers.
