Rosie returns.



What can be said, but last night the word was out.
In the bars and shops, in the cafes, and throughout our little land, the news that Rosie landed in Scotland on Wednesday, and was met by her family and welcomed by her friends, as she just kept running.

It`s really good to have someone like Rosie.
In a world that seeks to create heroes for our future, we owe her more than mere words could ever speak.
The illustrious "Times of London" has run an article, full of interesting "facts", including a reference to the time that Rosie sailed single-handed around the world, and a good part of that was done completely naked...(Ah, meanwhile, as the waves roll infinitely toward the shore..;)

The BBC have also run a good article, with several video clips, unfortunately, whilst they don`t charge to link, the videos seem not to be "embedable".


If you`d like to see and hear "Grandma Rosie", then Click `ere


Here`s the incredible woman herself, passing through the United States....


If you`d like to learn more, her website is in the links section, and she also has a "guest book"....

She is a looker and a local hero I see. What is her motivation anyway?

What is her motivation?

I think a better question is what is our motivation towards staying in one place and working, day after day after day........

Did you notice the gas station sign in the background of her pic?
The prices start with a 2 which would make that photo ancient history, at least a couple of months old...:-)

You are right and I did notice the gas station as that is my life long residence but I couldn't recognize it!

Hi Jim, thanks, I`m fine, but working overtime at present, so not much time for blogging.

As for what motivates Rosie, I guess it`s the same old thing that gets us all going, just that she seems to have a little bit more of it!!
