I visit my gym
every Monday. I tried to go every other Monday but the sheer weight of the flatbed cart almost did me in. I literally could not push it over the speed bump in the parking lot and of course when I finally did get it over, everything on the front of the cart fell off.
So there I was in the parking lot, on a blistering hot day, reloading my cart and cursing up a storm while people drove by with smirky smiles on their faces.
It was then I decided to workout every Monday and have lighter loads to deal with. It’s been a better workout. Workout? Yes, that’s right. My gym is Costco.
I have a paid membership and everything, and what other gym will sell you a giant hot dog and soda for a buck fifty? Although, I almost canceled my membership when the company switched from Coke to Pepsi. Puhleeze… Pepsi?! Ick.

Just recently I shared with you our discovery of a long-forgotten blink of a town known as Hilt, just a few miles south of the California Oregon border. When I told a friend of mine about our discovery, she asked me, “Did you know there is a Buddhist Temple just beyond Hilt?” Um, no!
The following guest post is shared with us by Meg Pier. I met Meg online, which is where I meet most of the people I introduce you to, and through our online conversations we have discovered we follow some of the same paths in our lives.
