Podcast Recap

I’m back down to the podcast rock as it’s confirmed, I have a pretty crumby case of Plantar Fasciitis which means no hiking for now. But today’s show will be all about finding the bright side. I let go of success and embrace experience. We greet our newest BC, Patty O., who posted on Daily Adventure Tales. Thanks Amazon shoppers and BC Mary S. for the virtual coffee. I read a blog post inspired by Dawny’s comment then I’ll BRAVELY share the tough love BC Dave gave me after. Comments by Josephine and BC Jo from the UK. Get your holiday greetings in by midnight of Dec. 18, 2017 to be included in this year’s holiday show.

Old Green Ford Ranger

Our old workhorse. This truck has seen us through so many adventures, it is really tough to let it go.


Silver Honda Ridgeline

Mark’s new baby! It’s a great truck, just need some time to bond with it I guess. Sometimes even good change is hard to process.

I’m feeling great in this moment on the mountain. A last minute decision results in a bonus hike and a bonus episode.

I thank our Veterans for their service then muse about the unexpected benefits of mindfulness.

Happy Halloween everyone! In honor of the day I wrestle with letting go of some of my personal ghosts and turn my most dreaded body part into my new super power. We meet our three newest brave companions, Maria S, Sunny from Taiwan and new BC Kathy C. BC Dave shares his and his wife, BC Kathleen’s experiences with Disc Golf on the BC Bravery Sports report.

Things are looking up as I’m back on the podcast rock, feeling great and ready to step back into my life after recovering from a skin cancer procedure.

Podcast Recap

Back on the podcast rock after recovery from my skin cancer procedure, I ponder the value of an aging body and what it has to teach us. Dawny checks in with a life update and some much needed support for me after my last emotionally draining show. Thanks to BCs Mary S and Cynthia from the Netherlands for their support via Instagram. Dawny’s latest Foolish Fun in honor of the Fall season.

Laurie smiles in front of the Disney Animation Building

Another fun night at a preview of the new season of Star Wars Rebels at the Disney Animation building. Such a cool part of belonging to Women in Animation. I was Sooooo glad to get out of my house finally.

You can see my bandage on my temple, but I was a happy camper at Disney Animation.
