Wrapping it up

Special welcome today to:
Dear Miss Mermaid

Thanks for Following and inching us closer to the next milestone!

I thought I'd try something new and ask you all to vote on my poll.  Directly on the right panel you can let me know how often you read the Roadrunner Chronicles.  If you would do that - I'd appreciate it!

We spent our last day in Fairfax for a while.  We will be spending October and November in Virginia Beach so we may come back to Fairfax for a few days, but for now we were here to see Adam before he left and also to get his Pathfinder and drive it to Tennessee.  It has been wonderful to connect with some old friends the last couple of days and to see the house where we spent 17 years!

Yesterday I went for another run around Burke Lake and enjoyed it thoroughly.  It is 4.6 miles around the lake and although I spent 10 minutes warming up and 10 more cooling down, the 40 minutes in the middle was a good workout.
I ran into a group of ladies with small children in carriages?  Is that what you call the tri-wheeled vehicles.  It was quite impressive.  I think there were 7 or 8 (some had 2 kids in the buggies) and they quickly passed me.  They have been doing this a while.

Pam and I drove down to the Pro Bass store in Ashland.
It has a very large aquarium with some large fish.  We also stopped at Potomac Mills for some things and packed up the vehicles for the drive back to Maynardville.

Our Monday was more of a R&R from the weekend that anything...

Hope your week is going well!


  1. Interesting idea on the poll. Glad to see you're getting great results too.

  2. Cool poll gadget! We are one of your groupies! We read your post everyday.

  3. I read your blog every day, but rarely leave a comment. I don't always have something to say, but it doesn't mean that I am not enjoying your blog!

  4. I think the three wheelers are called strollers. Although most folks now jog or run with them as well as stroll.

    If you post, it shows up in the reading list, and I try to stay current with the list as best as I can.

    As a fellow Tiffin owner, I am always curious as to what new things you have found out about the coach. And well envious too when you are in such neat places, like way up north in Canada.

    Thanks for such a nice blog.
