Walk in the Pennypack
As I wrote to my group this morning: A little foggy outside now? Don't let that stop you from going on a nature walk... and taking photographs, if you wish.
As a person w diabetes, I brot Glucose Tabs in my pocket. Blood sugar when leaving home was 143. After walking an hour it was 112. Normal is 80 to 120.
What beautiful things we saw:
Oh, I've been coming here for years, she said. Presley is a hound dog and absolutely gorgeous. Carol works at the library. Like me she was bundled up as it was deceptively warm but the dampness got to you. Lemme check my outdoor thermometer: 50.
They remembered Scott's late dog Spanky, the runt of the litter who fit in the palm of his hand. Did I mention that at SEPTA a tiny tabby kitten followed him into the carhouse and the workers adopted him? They named him Seymour. Perhaps he'll be their therapy cat.
I told pharmacist Bobby Matza that he's in my kidney memoir. He freaked out.
Pygmalion, based on the Bernard Shaw play, starring Leslie Howard as Prof Higgins and Wendy Hiller debuting as Eliza Doolittle. Fab! Fab! Fab!
Woody Allen wrote a funny column in today's Times about his fear of disease and dying.
On the way home we returned books to the library. When we passed Manhattan Bagel I told Scott every time we pass by I eat a pumpernickel bagel with scallion cream cheese, just like I eat a couple of doughnuts at Weinrichs' Bakery.
Don't you do the same thing, Scott!
NO, he said.
