The 10k walk started at the Valero Trailhead behind the Drury Inn at the intersection of I-10 and 1604 in the northwest section of San Antonio. This is a wide flat, paved trail used by bicyclists, runners, and walkers. Because it was a Tuesday morning, not many people were out and about.

Costco was on my way home and I needed a few items, plus I had one of their hot dogs for lunch. Hunger sets in after a 6.2 mile walk!
Because of the rain, I used my umbrella. At home I opened the umbrella to let it dry out, when who should appear but Sunnie. My sunshine cat loves umbrellas!

Update on Bob's surgery (Tuesday, March 24): Bob had his follow-up appointment with the plastic surgeon today. It has been two weeks since his surgery. Bob was very happy to be given the okay to resume his normal activities: running and basketball. He needs to keep his neck covered whenever he's out in the sun to protect the skin flap. If he doesn't, the skin flap will turn dark brown.
In the past, he has always worn baseball caps when he's outside. However, they don't provide enough protection. So, he ordered two hats: one with a much wider brim, and one with a fabric flap that hangs down on the sides and back to protect his ears and neck.
Can you tell that today is "catch up on blogs day"?
