I am having a 'lackluster' summer so I have even resorted to getting back to my exercise routine. It is best if I try to get out in the morning with the Diane Rheme show from NPR on my headphones but even then I do NOT enjoy this activity. This past week I decided that maybe it was a good idea to try and get some exercise in every day. It is always my goal to do it as quickly as possible so I have perfected the skill of doing my neighborhood walk, once around for 1mile, as quickly as possible. Yesterday I timed myself and I made it in 12 minutes. I wish I was one of those people who loved to exercise but I just am NOT that person.
I heard on the radio today that young people in China who exercised when they were young had less incidents of cancer and if they continue to exercise when they are older, they continued to have less cancer. Maybe I should move to China.
That is my "rant' about exercise.

Friday was a great evening for a sail on Grand Traverse Bay. We took sandwiches from Mary's Kitchen Port, snacks and good wind out with us for the evening.
Our final stop was Bardon's Wonder Freeze. I am not sure this family is a good influence on Bud and me. This is the second time in the last few weeks that they have talked us into stopping for ice cream. However, it was a tasty to end a great evening. Nothing like an evening of sailing topped off with ice cream.

It was a busy weekend here in TC. Bud's Uncle Tom came to town with his friend Margaret.
Did I mention questionable weather??? Well it did rain on us a bit but the air was nice and warm so it really wasn't a problem.
That same evening Bud's family met together for an evening picnic just down the road at Ted and Jean's house. It was a great time for the TC family to see each other and catch up. Even though we all live right here in town, it seems they don't see each other very often.
We ended up the weekend over at Sue and Walt's cottage, enjoying yet another view, having pizza for dinner and then heading out to Bardon's Wonder Freeze to celebrate "National Ice Cream Day"
It was a great weekend.
