Adventures in the Blue Zones

Over the noon hour today, I ventured into the Muscatine Blue Zone, walking from:

  • MCSA to El Olmito, where I met Dave Matthews and some other geographically challenged retired gym teachers for lunch. I say geographically challenged because they teased me about my hometown, Chariton, being in southwest Iowa. There is no way a town that is at least 25 miles east of Interstate 35 is in southwest Iowa. Chariton isn’t Corning no matter what Matthews says.
  • El Olmito to First National Bank. After leaving the bank, I ran into Jim Wester on the sidewalk and said hello.
  • The bank back to MCSA.

I’m not sure how far that was to walk. Maybe 10 blocks.

It’s nicer today outside — at least when you stick to walking on the sunny side of the street.
