I arrived at Taco Cabana at Bitters Rd. (start point) at 6:25 a.m., bought a green Randolph Roadrunners (San Antonio Volksmarch Club) polo shirt and a cute roadrunner pin, then started my shift. That was easy volunteer work. When walkers finished, I stamped their event and distance books with the event stamp for today.

When my shift was over at 8:30, I headed out on my 11K (6.8 mile) walk. This walk went through the gorgeous San Antonio neighborhoods of Bluff View and Camino Real. I finished my walk in one hour and 40 minutes.
Impressions of the neighborhoods...

These homes backed up to a busy road. They must have had some problems with people coming over their fence. If you enlarge the next photo you can see broken bottles cemented into the top of their fence. Not only that, behind the wooden fence is a solid rock wall.

|That's what I'm talkin' about...shade!|

So, that was my Saturday.
Bob was not feeling well last night or today. This morning his face and chin were quite swollen. His symptoms included lethargy, achiness, headache. He thinks it has something to do with the new medication his doctor put him on for atrial fibrillation. I suggested he stop taking it immediately. He has an appointment with his cardiologist on Monday. Thank goodness.
All for today. Have a good Sunday everyone!
