You know how the say smells can elicit memories? It's true. I got a strong whiff of Skunk today!! Man did that put me on guard! I remembered the summer of 1969. We, my brother Rick and me, would wait until the folks were asleep then scurry out our bedroom window. We'd hook up with Eric, Jeff, and Paul, we were a "gang"!
Off to the golf course to get driving range balls, of course we did other things I'd best not publish....ahem...it was on that golf course I caddied every weekend in '68 and this particular Summer. I still remember one of the guys yelling.."What's that!" I turned just in time to see the back end of a Skunk fast approaching us! It was getting ready to spray! We took off and made a narrow escape but the smell was thick in the still night air!
That was the summer I went to The Boy Scout National Jamboree, where I saw Neil Armstrong step foot on the moon. The Summer we heard about Woodstock and fell under the influence of flower power! Those were the good ole days! All from a whiff of Skunk!!
Totals-5.41 miles at recovery pace. Now over two days off! I ought to be rested!
Hope you have a great weekend! Good luck on the race, Marlene, Peace all!
