Was not real sure what to call this article, but it has been an interesting last 4 weeks of what I have done.
Three weeks ago I rode my bicycle 25 miles in the Another Blooming Festival Bike Ride in Metter Georgia. It is sponsored by the Metter Kiwanis Club. You can see a picture of me with two friends as we were at the beginning at the start on the bicycling page on my web page. It was an enjoyable ride and I did well. I have ridden it several years
Two weeks ago I rode in the Pine Tree Breeze Bike Ride in Swainsboro Georgia. I rode 30 miles and it was a good day of riding. It is a relatively flat ride in the northeast side of Emanuel County from Swainsboro. The weather was good. I have ridden in it several years (did 70 miles in it the past)
Last weekend I ran for the first time since 2004 in a race. I ran in the Knotty Pine 5K in Swainsboro which is sponsored by the Swainsboro Kiwanis. I finished in 34:41. I am participating in the Run for God program at First Baptist in LaFayette and am scheduled to run in Chattanooga in June in a 5K. Although not fast I was pleased to run the whole 5K and did have my spurt at the end. I won a trophy for being #2 in my age group (only second trophy I have ever won) so I was happy.
Those three activities should have shown my heart should be in good shape but Thursday it was tested in a surprise WKG. Yes a WKG. that is a Wasp KardioGram. I went to get gas in my 1986 Skylark (which is only once every few weeks at best) and without looking as I was doing credit card in the pump I opened the gas door and reached in and took off the cap. I have been putting gas in this car 25 years so I know how the door and cap work. I felt my finger touch something soft and thought that was strange. I turned and looked and discovered wasps had decided to build a nest in front of the gas cap. If I had not had a good heart I would have probably had a heart attack there. Turns out no wasps on it so I used the gas nozzle and removed the nest.
DwightTO SUBSCRIBE This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think. Feel free to forward this to others. If you don't want to get this e-mail let me know. Feel free to use what you read from me, but I request you give me credit and send a tear sheet if published in a newspaper or magazine. Thanks.
