Geezer X - Day 7: Our Last Day

September 23

Since John and Greg were leaving today, we were all up around 8:00.  They didn’t end up leaving until around 10:00 so we had time for some final talk before they had to go.  It is always sad to see them go as it means this year’s Geezer Gathering is coming to an end.

We didn’t do much for the rest of the day.  Since the puzzle wasn’t going to be finished, there wasn’t much incentive to work further on it so we mostly sat around and talked.  We also started getting things packed up so we didn’t have to do it all in the morning.

When we were in Hawaii, our friend Ev introduced me to a game called Wordbrain which can be played on smart phones and tablets.  I became addicted and have been playing it ever since so this afternoon I got Jack and Steph playing.  I don’t know whether they will play it as much as I have, but they did play it for most of the afternoon and evening, and I did pry Jack away long enough to take a walk.

The only real place to walk is on the roads so we developed a route that is probably about a two-mile round trip.  Since we are in the mountains the roads are either going up or going down, nothing is flat ,which means half of our route is easy and half is quite strenuous. The last section was especially strenuous.  When you add the 7000-foot altitude, Jack and I were panting by the time we reached the house.  It seems like it has not gotten any easier over the week, and actually seems to have gotten harder (maybe that has to do with our snack table).  Anyway, we certainly felt like we had gotten our exercise for the day.

Dinner tonight was eating leftovers from our previous dinners.  With so many good meals this week it was hard to choose so we made multiple choices.  We spent the rest of the evening talking and then called in an early evening.  Tomorrow we go our separate ways.
