My allergies have been horrible this summer. All I've done since July 5th is annoy everyone with my coughing. I have postponed walking my normal routine. Tonight I decided it was time to give it a try. I left poor Kia whimpering at the window. Depending on how I did, I promised her I would take her tomorrow night. I grabbed my IPod and drove to the lake. The weather was perfect. The waves on the lake were rough, but it sounded like heaven to me. Lots of people were out walking and lots and lots of traffic crossed the dam. I didn't cough once until I reached the car. Looks like Kia may have a date tomorrow!!
