__Michael called this morning. Of course he is still worrying about me
and Mom. He asked me to mail his heavy duty hiking boots to Port
Clinton, PA. which is 60 miles from where he started today. I will need
to overnight them. The rocks of Pennsylvania are hurting his feet and
ankles. His boots are a lot heavier than his trail shoes but he needs
the extra feet protection.
