On "Stay-cation"

Thank you everyone for the wonderful congratulatory wishes for the Marathon, as well as the Birthday wishes. I really appreciate all of your kindness.

My 88 year old father is here this week while I am on Stay-cation, which is staying at home while on vacation!

He keeps me very busy so I won't have much time to be visiting with you. Dad has won many awards for his gardens in Toronto, so I'm going to put his expertise to great use while he is here. I tell you, he can run rings around me, just hope I'm still as active when I reach 88!!

Have a great week, stay safe, train hard and for everyone competing this coming weekend, have a great time!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,
Lily

Hey when Dad is done at your place I have virgin territory in my back yard that are screaming from award winning advice!
Have a wonderful stay-cation. I can relate! I was thinking of meeting a friend at a professional conference in THE OC, CA for a conference on my own nickel until the so called seat sale fare of $257 one way added up to over $750!!! sigh

hope the weather stays great for the week!

Enjoy our time with your dad. Make the most of every minute. And if your dad fancies taking on an Australian garden ... we are here to help. :-) Native trees and plants and all ... it's jungle.

I can't imagine being active when I am 48 let alone 88. Have fun with your pops.
