I am on the hunt for a new hiking trail in the area. Running or jogging is not my thing, but hiking or going on a good walk is what I like to do. I have little endurance for running long or short distances.

Millions of Henny Pennys the world over are mightily perturbed that President Trump fulfilled another campaign promise and, unswayed by all the liberal propaganda that has been going on for nearly 30 years and reaching its peak under Barack Obama, made the commonsense decision to remove the U.S. from the Paris Accord, or so-called man-made global warming, even though that may take three or four years to do.

What we are witnessing in Washington, D.C., is not acceptable to the American people. The hatred, the lies being told, the rumors being spread, the rift between party members, too many bureaucrats, leaks, the flow of money, have resulted in disgust among citizens.

We are not a close follower of the Hollywood elites of today, except like many of you we do hear their political outbursts when there are elections, especially in presidential years. Most of these stars of the screen are about as liberal as they come. Why?

The blow was stunning but not a knockout punch. We’ve been missing in action for three weeks. Knee surgery will do that, and if you didn’t accept the fact that you are old, you are more inclined to do so after the surgeon performs the invasion with his instruments. We are grateful to Dr. Dav…
