Today was a day of walking. I logged thirty-five minutes of huffing and puffing on the treadmill at Gunner's Field House this morning before it shut down. The last time one of their treadmills quit on me - again at 35 minutes - I had walked 2.03 miles. Today I had accomplished a bit more at 2.06 miles. I have a theory that they set the machines to begin the five-minute cool off at thirty minutes during times of heavy usage. If I go back tomorrow afternoon when there will be fewer people at the gym, the same treadmill will probably let me do the full hour.

After leaving the gym I drove to the big Shopette on Camp Foster where I found a book for my oldest grandson (It will go out in the mail on Monday, Boone) and a movie for myself - Dorian Gray - the remake of an old film based on the book by Oscar Wilde. I may just have to watch it tomorrow.
Walking resumed after I got home from Camp Foster. With camera in tow, I hoofed it off to American Village, following the paved path that runs beside the coastline. I snapped a few pictures along the way and at the Village, then went to the big grocery and department store, Jusco, where I bought a few things to send home in Christmas packages - and a few postcards. I also treated myself to one rich scoop of ice cream at Jusco. None of the flavors were labeled in English, so I chose what appeared to be Butter Pecan. It turned out to be some coffee-flavored concoction, but it wasn't too bad.
