So a hiking update. It's been crazy hot and I admit I have missed a couple of weekends but Sunday I was determined to do something so Sister Meg and I hiked on part of the Nashville greenways system. An easy two and a half flat miles but ohmigod it was so crazy hot I thought I was going to kill myself and all the people around me. My friend Carol says when marathoners are thirsty they lick the roofs of their mouths. Well I tried it and it did most definitely not give me the pause that refreshes. Anyway, we hiked up to the fancy new pedestrian bridge over the Cumberland river that connects the middle of nowhere to the area slightly to the east of the middle of nowhere. It's a nice multi-million dollar bridge and here is a picture of Sister Meg standing on it. Wearing the world's nuttiest hiking costume. That is not a skirt; they're like plaza pants shortened to gaucho length.
