I’ve FINALLY got a trail name too!

2011 March 22

Well it finally happened for me . . . I’ve got my very own trail name. It happened on a sunny spring day. John and I were eating lunch with Snickers and Ice Cream (those are trail names–we were eating peanut butter and bagels which are not trail names). Anyway. . . I was lamenting the fact that neither John nor I had been the recipient of trail magic yet. An example of trail magic is coming down into a gap and finding a couple guys grilling burgers and giving them to hikers for free or finding a cooler full of cold pops just inside the woods. There have been at least 4 or 5 times where we have arrived mere minutes after “the magic.” We hear all the great stories of Hardees sandwiches or homemade cookies, but not us. No magic for us.

That’s how I became known as . . . Muggle.

    HAHA!! I just looked up “muggle” – because, unlike the rest of the world, I haven’t read or seen anything Harry Potter! LOL For those of you “uninformed”, this is what I discovered 😉 …

    “A Muggle is a person who is born into a non-magical family and is incapable of magic.” That CRACKS me up! Great name for Lizard! :) LOL GOOD one! :) I hope you break that nickname and do NOT live up to it… ha! but alas… you still have your post office surpises awaiting you!!!!

    P.S. How long should it take for a flat rate box to arrive, do you think? I have one ready for Erwin, TN to go out tomorrow. BUT I have a friend of your’s wanting to include a treat! :) Hmmm… wondering if I should risk it and wait for it to arrive??? Or go ahead and mail this one to make sure you get it by April 1st… hmm… oh the DELIMA!!! Do I dare tell you it’s John’s friend from work wanting to send you GS cookies?!?!
