Ginny: The scenery! You name it – we see everything from corn fields to mowed lawns to parking lots.
Jim: Since we’re on level ground and going at a snail’s pace, I’m not too winded to talk. And there’s a captive audience around me as I explain what’s wrong with the world.
Mable: I get to wear waterproof jogging pants and great big hiking boots.
Arnie: I like wearing a backpack and swinging these poles around. This is just like climbing Mount Everest, only without the snow, rocks, inclines, sherpas, ice falls, and dead bodies left behind by previous expeditions.
George: I know that if we were suddenly attacked by a pack of wolves, there’s a walk-in clinic within a few blocks.
Gladys: We always have a nice picnic at the halfway point. Myrna brings a bundt cake, and Charlene is carrying the drip coffeemaker.
