That's kind of the reverse thing I do when I realized so many people shopping were talking on their phones. I don't worry about looking weird when I talk out loud to myself!

I see you found the shortcut to work.

Making a batch of refrigerator pickles. The cukes are starting to come on.

Earlier had a battle with the "Black Screen of Death", and emerged victorious. May be getting time for a new 'puter.

Gorgeous scenery. Was it fun? Was it scary? Have you done it before? I would love to try doing that.

It's great fun. Lots of ladder climbing and a bit up uphill terrain to navigate. The actual zip lining was the easy part
Chutes Coulonge - Aerial Park, Via Ferrata, canyon zip, zip lining quebec,

Once they get you over the gorge, they say it's either 25 seconds, or a 4 hour walk back. Take your pick

I didn't get to sit down on the patio. The weather refused to cooperate. So I took a fast run on my scooter to BK for a Whopper and small fries. That was a mistake. I should hve skipped the fries, (I forgot I don't like fries.) and had a Jr. Whopper. The regular one is too big for me. I went through the drive-thru window. I wasn't sure if the scooter would set off the button inside letting them know there was a vehicle for ordering. But it did. I didn't want to go inside. When I got home, I finished watching the equestrian events and then took a nap. Something I didn't want to do. I had some kitchen work I wanted to finish. Oh well, that will give me something to keep me busy tonight.

Our local girl, Ali Reisman is the one to beat in the gymnastics. She even knocked off one of her teammates.
