Early Morning Blues: Good Story, But I Can't Upload Photos

But Officer, I was only doing four mph!

Edit:  It's 10:00 p.m. and I was able to upload a photo!  Yay!!

I've got some great photos and stories to share from the past week.  One in particular...  I was walking a desert road on Sunday night, with reflective fabric and a flashlight. There was no moon.

If I see ten cars during a six mile walk, it's a lot.  Each time a car approaches, I'll step off the road and shine the flashlight backwards toward the approaching car so I don't get waffled.

Three miles from home in Tucson Mountain Park, I heard a car approach.  As I moved off the road, I heard the car slow down.  It didn't pass me.  Blue and red lights reflected off the surrounding cactus.

"Evening, officer" I said.  "I was only going four miles an hour."  I was already reaching for my ID. 

Another Pima County Sherrif's car approached from in front (we're in the middle of the desert) and made a U-turn and parked behind the first car, whose deupty was running my ID.

I stood there leaning on my walking staff.  I heard one deputy call to the other "I'm pretty sure it's not him."  I was pretty sure he was right, and I said so.

Turns out that there had been a high speed chase six or eight miles to the west, ending with the car off the road in the desert, and the driver fleeing on foot.

I sure wish I could show you the photo!

Cynthia,

He had a sense of humor about the whole thing.  I'm likely to see him again; this is a pretty small community.

Rita,

I track my mileage using a GPS program on my Blackberry, and it says I "rested" for 13 minutes.  "Mind if I take a quick shot?"  LOL

Mike - sounds like quite a walk. I like your comment "It's mostly real quiet at night, and it's good for the soul.". I used to walk about 3 miles three or four times a week with my dog and loved it - I need to get back to it.

Sharon,

You will get back into walking when you decide to do it.  It's a choice.  Thanks for stopping by to comment!
