Calling All Soles!!! Kareoke, Blazing Maniacs and More   Leave a comment

All Soles on deck! All Soles on deck! Karaoke on Wednesday! Be there to support Natalie in the championship at Bailey’s about 9.

What an amazing weekend for running. The Mill was crowded with blazing soles yesterday!! I lost count at three quadraped Soles and sixteen biped Soles. [Shadow sends a special thanks to Mary and Susan for emergency vet services on the Beech loop! His sad puppy whine (shadow got something painful stuck in his paw) still haunts me.] Then there was a blazing invasion at Foster’s (there should be a large group and frequent eater discount for us).
