Heart and Stroke Walk 2018

Remember the interview last week? This past weekend, we volunteered at the Heart and Stroke Walk in Portland. As the 7000+  people were walking the Stroke Walk, I got this picture taken of me.  Kind of nice, isn’t it?

I had my camera/phone with me but it didn’t occur to me to take some pictures!  I just got off the phone with the American Heart and Stroke Association…and they told me they were waiting for the photographers to upload their pictures.  Who new it would be so challenging to post a bunch of pictures!  Maybe I could draw some for you?  That wouldn’t be pretty…considering I would be drawing with my LEFT hand.  Let me attempt it:

I could add a few more pictures.  I think I did a good job drawing me.  If you look at the above picture, you will see they are almost identical, but I know the other images need a bit more work.  When the photographers pictures are posted, I will give you an update.


A long, long time ago…
