Getting them back on the bikes was a bit dicey (get it? diced tomatoes?) and a couple of them required immediate eating, which we were only too happy to do. There's nothing like a good juicy home grown tomato.
It was fun checking out this little town and I spied some interesting looking shops to revisit during Sunday football the next day. I could hardly wait.
Later that night we caught a nice documentary PBS did on Robin Williams and I learned that Left Brain has not seen Dead Poet's Society and Good Will Hunting. That must be remedied at once.
Sunday arrived and the minute Left Brain turned on the scourge of our nation (aka football) I snatched up the car keys and said goodbye.
I arrived at the old downtown area about 10:15. The plan: visit the quilt shop and the kitchen shop and then have some Indian food for lunch. Oh what a sweet day this will be.
Sunday. It appears many things are closed on Sunday. Such as Indian restaurants and quilt shops. The specialty kitchen store wouldn't open until noon. Oh what to do?

I've meant to start out this trip by walking 30 minutes every day and whittling away the excess fat that has taken up lodging around my middle.
So far that hasn't happened, but today is the day!
I figure if I just make it a plan to walk for 10 - 15 minutes a day I'll end up wanting to do more. Yes, I really am that easy to fool. So I strolled around downtown Mount Vernon for about 40 minutes without even knowing it. Translation: I forgot where I parked my car and went a few blocks out of my way.
Then, since I'd burned a couple hundred calories, I figured I'd find some pizza for lunch, but nothing came up in the area that didn't have horrible reviews. So, it was back to Panera where I had the spinach artichoke souffle for brunch....better choice for my weight loss plan anyway.
I checked Best Buys and Walmart but couldn't find either of the movies I wanted, so called it a day and returned home to do some sewing. These titles are too old, I'll have to order them through Amazon when we land somewhere.
At least I started my daily walking routine. All journey's begin with one step.
