Summer's Last Hurrah?


With today's weather more befitting of summer than fall, it was the perfect opportunity to get out on the Schuylkill River Trail once again. Pictured at left is Philadelphia's famed Boathouse Row (photo courtesy of Frank, my nurse/photographer). This time, I played tour guide for my friend Kimi (pictured below). With two wheelchairs, it required some extra coordination to avoid bicyclists. "You go first," we took turns saying to each other as they approached, full speed ahead. We also had to make sure we drove slowly enough for the ambulatory members of our party (a.k.a our nurses)!

All in all, it was a perfect day. Gorgeous weather, nice scenery, and great company. Of course, the day was even better because those Fightin' Phils defeated the Atlanta Braves tonight. With the New York Mets' loss, that means the Phillies are now tied for first place in their division!

Congrats to your Phillies. The Mets tried their hardest to blow it, and they did. How about a Boston/Philly World Series?? If it gets that far, we will make a friendly wager.

Listen, this is ridiculous (but probably my own fault 'cause I didn't email you back last week)! You ride past my house and don't email me so I can take a stroll?Amy

Hi Pat,
Thanks! There's nothing better than October baseball and FINALLY, I get to watch my team get there. I would be happy to make a wager with you, but who said anything about it being friendly?!?

Hi Amy,
Philly is a pretty big place! If you don't tell me where you live, how am I supposed to find you?!? I will definitely let you know next time I'm down there.

I had a great time Josh. It helped I had a cute and informative tour guide! :)

Hi Kimi,
Glad you had a good time. Funny, though, because I don't remember there being any cute tour guides that day. It's a good thing I was able to tell you about the trail!
