Hey y'all ... I'm back in NY.
Youse guys in Atlanta are the greatest.
I will add pictures and a wrap up tomorrow ... tonight I'm filled with sadness because our good friend Tom passed away while I was walking the hills of Atlanta.
Ronnie kept the news from me as he didn't want to ruin my amazing 3 days.
I'm glad he did that.
Tom Harkins was the sweetest guy.  
I will miss him.
I do want to give Kristen Cincotta a shout out.
She sent me the nicest note while I was in Atlanta.  
I don't think she'll mind if I share it with y'all:

"You don't know me, but I've been reading your blog for a while now.  I've actually linked to a bunch of your posts (my blog is "Kristen Walks")  I keep coming back to your posts because you are always so positive about everything.  So, let me give some of that back to you:  I'm positive that you're doing a great job!  I'm positive you're inspiring others and I'm positive that you're awesome!  have fun stomping across Atlanta!!"

Well readers (Bee and Sarge and those of you who say you read my blog but don't comment) that made my day ... no ... that made my YEAR!!!
Thank you Kristen!  Thank you!

  2. I'm here! I'm so glad you got my letter!! I finished them so late and I wasn't sure it would get to you in time!

    Hopefully we'll get to meet in person soon. I'm sorry for your loss but I'm sure your infectious positivity will carry you through!


  3. Meowm so wants to do this walk, but she fears she would not be able to raise the funds!

    We give you 12 paws up for a great job!
