'Twas a misty, moisty morning; cloudy was the weather...

So where the hell was the sunny 60 degrees the weatherman promised?? Not here!

Today's run was four miles, per the schedule. I ran up to the park, then did the park loop. I entered at a different point in the park and rather liked it, I'll have to do that again. I like the park enough that I don't feel a need to vary the route much...the weather provides plenty change of scenery!

Today's weather was a challenge. Warm-ish and almost 100% humidity. I felt like I was trying to breathe through a wet cloth, and my clothes were quickly wet, too, only partly from my sweat. And, yes, I think I overheated. Will have to learn not to wear so many layers when the temp is above 45.

Well, it got done. May run again tomorrow, may wait 'til Saturday, I don't know.

Found myself locked out of my house when I got home... finally realized I must have dropped the key when I stopped by the optometrist for my new box of contacts, so I had to go back up there; sure enough he had my key. Thank God... it would have been a long cold wait on the steps for my upstairs neighbors to come home and let me in!

I recognize that poem as the beginning of one I used to know, but I can't place it! What is that poem? Do you know the poet?

'Twas a misty moisty morning and cloudy was the weather. When I chanced to meet a man, clothed all in leather . He began to speculate and I began to grin. How do you do and how do you do and how do you do again ? Mainly twere so --- jeanieba@yahoo.com
