We have had a few days of sunshine and warm weather which made it possible to go outside and work on cleaning the flower beds and mowing the lawn. I take Portia, my 160 pound Newfoundland, outside with me, because she likes to supervise and spend time outdoors with her mom. While working, Portia and I have discussions about everything, including health and walking.
Today we start a talking about walking… okay, so maybe I was doing the talking and she was listening! But, I started to think about all the adages that I’ve read– and wondered where they came from and are they still relevant?
TO SIGN UP FOR WALK 7B – for June, at the Parks and Recreation Department…
So, here for your reading pleasure, are just a few of the great walking adages to live by…

walk. -Jacqueline Schiff

day when she was sixty. She’s ninety-seven
now, and we don’t know where the heck she

a bicycle goes too fast. -Paul Scott Mowrer

If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking.

walk. -Raymond Inmon

walking. -Friedrich Nietzsche

whole day. -Henry David Thoreau
