    wow

    What a great post, and what an inspiration!
    Thank you

    Edit: I just remembered the best part of Titanic- the photographs of the amazing life the central female character led after she was given a second chance. Ditto for the last scene of Saving Private Ryan. They should do a movie of you.

    Many thanks to all the good wishes. I spent my birthday in my front yard in my hammock. My neighbors are used to me! I've received some private pms, and my prayers to those affected by cancer in their family.
    Sweeper, your hike this weekend that you dedicate to me will be my first step on the AT. Does that make me a section hiker?
    My HF name Avalon is Celtic for a perfect place, also Isle of Apples, and I am surprised each morning to wake up, hench....Avalonmorn.

    Avalonmorn,
    Touching post. When are you coming to hang in the NM pines? We have a few choice rocks for your coffee table. The door is open...
