another look?

so, when did they change the look again on the journals?    i know it's been awhile since i've written    time flies when you're having fun   and fun it has been    well not sure i told you, but i'm now co-coordinator of the Hike group at my church   i took them to the top of Sandia Peak last week   everyone loved it   it was about a 3mi round trip hike over to Kiwanis Cabin and the restaurant that sits atop   between my cold and the high alittude, my breathing was hard at times   but i finished   it was a beautiful day and has been here every day for awhile   when not hiking, i've been reading 4 books in 4 weeks   i just finished White Fang yesterday    before that i read, Call of the Wild, Merle's Door, and Into the Wild    all great books with plenty of nature in them, and hunting   except for Into the Wild, they all centered around a dog or a wolf    i enjoyed all 4 books immensely   i hope to see the movie Into the Wild this week   i Loved this book   it reminded me of when i was on the edge to go and live off the land into the wild myself   the closest i got was living on the other side of the mountain, which was great and sufficient enough   after reading all 4 of these books, i've been ready to go hunting   i did it once @ 10yrs old with my dad   he gave me that gun we used that day   maybe i'll have to load it up and just go huntin'   but that will entail a great deal of thought whether to get sum shells for it due to this illness i have   i'll know if and when to go huntin   need to find a huntin' buddy   as a kid, i helped my mom or my sister and i skinned the rabbits and squirrels my dad would bring home   my sister hated it   i loved it   thought it was the kewlest thing   just wish my dad had taken me more often    anyways, i love nature so these books were well worth the read   and Jack London's writing is awesome....well i must get started with my day    today i'm off to the Bosque del Apache with Marsha and her grandbaby Madison (1yr)   they're my hikin buddies   the Bosque is where all the birds migrate for the south   i've been wanting to go for years, but kept forgetting   alas, i'm off for the adventure    i'll take plenty of pics and post them soon    have a great one   God Bless You!

    I read Call of the Wild and really enjoyed it. My kids didn't though, which surprised me. Never had the chance to read the others. Glad to hear you're healthy and busy. Take care.

I read Call of the Wild and White Fang so many times I can still quote passages by heart
