"The Blog Almost Too Boring To Be The Most Boring Blog in America"

until it got too many red cards from Benjamin and the Boredom Enforcement Committee ... now the tortoise's goal is to get to 10 red cards so he can get Big Dog to drive down and take a good long walk with the tortoise

P. S. This blog listens to its readers. We have the Benjamin Category Override for 5+ mile walks and now, it humbles Tortoise to say he has been named "Lou", by Doug Jr, in memory of Mr. Consistency himself, Lou Gehrig. Tortoise can hardly type the words to think he is in any way comparable to the noble Iron Horse. Thank you!

Mile 78.  A late night 2.06 mile walk up and down La Verkin's Main Street in 39:09 minutes. Because the Tortoise just has to keep going, no matter what.  Too dark for a good picture, but fortunately, Lou was blessed to listen to perhaps one of the classic President Hinckley talks of all time, which is saying something, because he had a lot of classics.  Just ask Mike Wallace or Larry King

Mile 76.  Today's walk after work took Tortoise on what he calls the "large southern loop" beginning and ending at his Hurricane office.  It's 4.47 miles, goes as far south as "the old stake center" on 650 South and as far east as Main Street.  Lou completed it in 1:27:15 hours.  For more on this, including an additional picture and today's still timely walking thought on mercy by Thomas S. Monson, please click below to continue reading ...

Mile 71.  Tortoise purposely walked the long way to decorate Lou's brother Michael's grave on his birthday ... so Lou could add some hills en route.  Willyne met me there and kindly brought the flowers and took the pictures.  Thank you, Sweetheart.
