In my yesterday’s post on Old Men, the story is about two old men walking the Appalachian Trail and I had included a link to another story about a walk along the Pacific Crest Trail.

Recently, there has been a lot of walking in my life some deliberate and some out of compulsion.  I also had the pleasure of receiving a friend from Uttaranchal last week.  He runs a Travel Agency that organises trekking and biking tours on Himalayan trails and his  insistence that I join him soon was so tempting that I almost succumbed and went with him on his return.

And, so I was not surprised when a cousin sent this to me as part of his message of congratulations on my resuming my walking for exercise routine again.

    1. I exercise regularly Nick but walking as an exercise was banned for me to prevent wear and tear of a prosthesis. So, I took to Yogabhyas and am still very regular with it.

  3. The cartoon reminds me of another one I had heard.

    Before you judge or criticize someone, walk a mile in their moccasins. This way they won’t hear your criticizm and you’ll have their moccasins.
