A Grand Day for Walking

We awoke to 25 degree (Fahrenheit) weather...brrrrr! Maddie and I pulled on layers of clothing to stay warm outside for a morning Walk.  We picked up several of her friends on our way to the BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, NC and joined a throng of other winter-garbed folks for a brisk Walk for a worthy … Continue reading A Grand Day for Walking
