    THURSDAY, JULY 13TH., 2017

    Much like a movie producer checks
the best locations for his feature film
my wife and I have been checking
various walking trails throughout our
area as she continues her rehabilitation
following open heart surgery some 7
weeks ago.
     We never realized how many choices
there are close to home.
      On Wednesday we found ourselves
on the levee system along the Susquehanna
River walking south from the Borough of
      Our starting time proved to be a poor
choice! The heat and humidity around 1pm
was probably similar to that in the Sahara
      A group of young children passed us
as we got started. Each on his or her own
motorized scooters! I wished I had one
long before I got to the one mile marker!
      Still, the route was pleasant enough.
We watched a helicopter land, successfully
by the way, at the Wyoming Valley Airport.
Another larger plane came in too. Each
close enough to watch without being too
close for comfort!
       It was also neat to see a trio of men
casting their fishing lines into the river
in the hope of making that big catch!
       We've walked a couple of the
levees now and we enjoy them. Although
we find ourselves wishing for some shade
trees every now and then,
       There's also the realization that rain
could prevent us from using those trails.
       A friend suggested we join her and
others who do their hiking at the mall.
Of course she also suggested we join them
at 7:30 or 8am. Regular readers already
know I don't recognize those as official
times of day unless there are extraordinary
       Later might work for us if we can
stay on the path and out of the shops!
Hope they're not too crowded around
Noon and that all your NEWS is good!
