Mark your calendar folks, I WAS WRONG!
My first mistake was saying ALL my friends are old and fat and lazy. Hey, maybe some of them are maybe not. So what? Who am I to make such a judgement? Just because some of them don't want to participate in my activities? I would say that was pretty selfish of me, wouldn't you?
So, to my friends who are in my age group or older - I APOLOGIZE. I DIDN'T MEAN IT!
Having said that, not everyone of my old, fat and lazy friends disagreed with me. Here is an e-mail exchange from my long time friend Bill B. (who is so secretive that he doesn't like to comment on my blog but I'm outing him anyway):
"I take umbrage with this: "ALL of my friends my age or older are overweight and out of shape and don' want to do anything other than eat out again." You know I love walking, it's just distance that comes between us sharing some trails.
Anyway, I'm waiting to see my schedules at work the next week and maybe then Lo and I can drive down and go with you to that photo shop. I'll reply to your email today.
"I have a bunch of old farts for friends, believe me. I'm the only young one. Sad but true." Indeed!! Someday you have to join me on some of the trails I regularly walk. :)"
