Linking to: FRIDAY’S FENCES,SUNDAY BRIDGES,NF WATERS WEDNESDAY….. Columbia Women's Newton Ridge Plus Hiking Boot….READ MORE
We are going to hike the Meadows and Ridge trail (orange & black on the map)
Life is a picnic,As you can see,As long as we have,
You and me.
Throw in a swing,And a day full of sun,We'll show you,How to have some fun.
Add some good food, And put on a smile,Don't be in a hurry,Stay for awhile.
Laugh and giggle,Eat till you're stuffed.Have some dessert,You can't get enough.
Family and friends,Make good picnic mates,
Because life is too short,To have empty plates.
- Tobi Payton
A short story for the rest of the post: EVER SINCE I WAS A CHILD, I'VE ALWAYS HAD A FEAR OF SOMEONE UNDER MY BED AT NIGHT.SO I WENT TO A SHRINK AND TOLD HIM.
'I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy.'
Just put yourself in my hands for one year,' said the shrink.Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.
How much do you charge? Eighty dollars per visit, replied the doctor.
'I'll sleep on it,' I said
Six months later the doctor met me on the street. 'Why didn't you come to see me about those fears you were having?' he asked.
Well, Eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought myself a new car!
Is that so! With a bit of an attitude he said, and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?
He told me to cut the legs off the bed! - Ain't nobody under there now!!!
FORGET THE SHRINKS.. TALK TO A BARTENDER!..You have my friend Charlie and the internet to thank for that story..LOL
A favorite spot on the path is on the deck where you can see for miles. The city of Columbus is even visible on clear days.
If the photo was better and maybe a little less hazy you could see Columbus,Ohio from this vantage point.
Almost back to the parking lot.
Thanks for stopping by…Maybe a Trail Ride in the Hocking Hills in the near future..( On a personal note:: Linda’s mom Maureen Petkey, age 78, of Highland, passed away Wednesday, October 10, 2012…Prayers appreciated.)
You covered a lot of ground! I bet you felt like a million bucks when you finished, didn't you?
Re the joke: Ha, ha. Bartenders are so SMRT, aren't they? Must be because they listen to the wisdom of so many drunks all day.
I am so sorry for Linda's (and your) loss. Sending healing thoughts and hoping family and nature are a comfort at this time.
Your hike is beautiful; I loved the joke and think I might actually be able to remember it to tell someone.
Fabulous Autumn colour in there :)

We went for a hike similar to this last weekend with boardwalks wandering thru the entire area. Your series is so pretty and full of color. I need to get mine organized and posted. It looks like you all had a wonderful day. genie
Fun joke! I like putting photos on, with text. If people get bored, they just look at the photos!
Good for you for doing your walks!
