Fifty Counting Down Episode 18

Looks like I didn't post anything for Episode 17. Oh well - life got in the way and to be honest I just forgot!

This has been a very good week for me. I feel strong, healthy and just generally good, even though the temperature has been high and the humidity level is off the scale.

I mentioned to my daughter on the weekend that it was very foggy when I got up - she said it wasn't fog - it was steam! I think she was right. I worked all weekend in a small town right on the shores of Lake Huron. It was torture to look at the beautiful blue lake, and not be able to get into it. I work with teenagers, and the logistics of getting special permission for them to go swimming just aren't worth the aggravation and I would never forgive myself if anything happened to them while they're in my care.

If you have listened to Episode 18, you will have heard my interview with Bill - the fellow in the photo above. What a character! He's riding across Canada to get away from a bad marriage. I felt privileged to be able to talk to him for a while.

I never would have met Bill if I hadn't gone on a bike ride to search out some info for Steve Chopper from the A Mile With Me podcast - so thanks Steve, for asking to do that.

    What an interesting episode! The noise in the background wasn't too bad. It does sound like a busy road to bike on though.

    Thanks again for great listening.
