Take A Hike


Himself and I were relaxing in the sunroom, watching "Good Morning, America" before we had to start our day. A news item caught our interest. A young couple had gotten lost for six days while hiking through the Grand Canyon. During the interview, the couple stated how being lost for six days was not only a life altering experience, but the realization that their survival depended on each other. They shared cookie pieces, M & Ms, and water, but they didn't ration their love for or dependence on each other.

"Maybe that's something we should do for Ma and Dad?"

"What's that?"

"Send them on a hike into the Grand Canyon. Maybe they could reaffirm themselves."

Himself looked at me with raised eyebrows.

"Can you just imagine? Grandpa rolling along. 'I am a happy wanderer, valdereee, valderah... and then Grandma chimes in, 'You're STOOOPID, STOOOPid, stooopid... "
