I started out the year with an evening walk. I hope to average about four miles a day walking this year so I was off to a good start last night. Today I did not walk as far, but together with yesterday I am at the average 🙂
It was a nice evening for a walk, so I will share some images I took along the way.
The flag at the second station was at the top of the flag pole and the one at the first was at half-mast. I had to check and see which flag was being flown correctly. A quick check on my phone found that the flag was to have been flown at half-mast for President Bush till sundown on December 30. Now if I had been walking on December 30, the flags would have been correct at both fire stations in this configuration as I passed the second station after sundown.
During the last mile or so I started to feel some rubbing on the back of my foot and when I got home I discovered that the plastic in the back of my shoe had cracked and curved inward. I had a nice abrasion on the back of my foot and a bloody sock.
I did a bit of surgery on my shoe, but may need to just go buy a new pair.
