Go take a Hike!

Face Book can be a wonderful way of keeping old friends connected...but that's not all! It is also a wonderful way to meet new friends! That's exactly how I met this episode's guest! We both belong to a face book group called "cool retired women" because that is just what we are!! Cathy Funk Kelly is a fascinating retired lady with an amazing athletic ability to hike! Yup, she is one of those people who actually loves to walk...and walk...and walk some more! She has hiked to the base camp of Everest and all over the Cascade Mountains and now she is my new friend! Thanks FB and thank you Cathy!
