What Tomorrow is All About


Hi there! I forgot to put a paragraph about Maggie in yesterday's post, so you can go back and read that if you want.

Also, (and I feel really shy about this), here is a link to something silly but very nice that the North Country Trail Association has proclaimed. NCTA declares August 3rd, 2010 "Joan Young Day"

You are doing a great thing. You don't have to be shy about this one.

RNSANE said...

Wow, I feel like I know a celebrity and, believe me, I consider you far more important than Lady Gaga or one of those others in the headlines. You are an incredible woman, Joan, and so deserving of having a day in your honor. I may not be a hiker but I really enjoy living vicariously through your steps and I applaud you through your adventures.
