The Major’s Walk-A-Thon

The standard-issue ‘walk-around-my-neighbourhood’ Saturday morning edition of ‘The Major’s Walk-A-Thon’ shall return next weekend. This morning I slept in. How ultimately radical I was to sleep in until shortly past 7 AM !

Last night I was up late with a bunch of my closest friends in Life, and we hung out at this festive joint up in Westchester.

Santa’s Enchanted Forest claims to be ‘The World’s Largest Christmas Theme Park’, and they may just have a legitimate stake to that claim. We walked for miles and miles last night. Much of it was back-and-forth walking, but it was certainly more walking than I would ever do on a typical Saturday morning walk around my neighbourhood.

For years and years in November and December I had driven by that bright spectacle along the west side of the Palmetto Expressway. Now I can say that I’ve finally experienced it. It was all good. I had a ton of fun in the lights of Christmas !

This morning I walked some more – inside and all-around the Homestead Kohl’s store. I went on a MASSIVE hour-long shopping spree that would excite any woman. I clearly purchased over $200 worth of much-needed merchandise and walked out of the store paying about 50% less than that. The savings were ENORMOUS at Kohl’s. If you haven’t been there in awhile then you need to check it out my Christmas shopping friends !

… And that’s how I walk the walk …

    Hi Ela,
    Long time no see or hear ! I always pray to God that you’ll surprise and delight all of us by making a physical appearance at Life Pointe Church some Sunday morning in the near future. Keep on doing your thing. You are God’s working miracle !

    Oh, thanks. I pray for the same. This past Wed. I had a hear/lung/kidney cath. My blood pressure was so high that I was admited into CCU overnight. Got home Thursday afternoon. Everything was great except that my lung pressure are sky high, so I will see my lung Dr. next week to see what we are going to do.
    Right now I have to rest for three weeks no lifting, no bending, nothing heavy and lots of rest and not sitting for long, with that said I got’s to go back to bed.

    Love ya…….
