Fulfill a personal goal...That is the theme for my Longest Day, June 21st 2017 activity.   I've seen and witnessed how Alzheimer's disease is not just for seniors, not just for the old.  There are several residents at Maple View Memory Care that are younger than 65, and possibly younger than 60.  "Why wait?".

Personally, I like to focus on a physical activity because physical fitness is so important to me and for overall health. But, I encourage you to fulfill any type of goal, it does not have to be a physical activity.  

 My plans have changed since I am in Minot, North Dakota taking care of my dad.  I am planning to walk at sunrise  in Oak Park with some Minot friends. I'm hoping to get 2.4 miles in to represent 24 hours in a day.  I'll continue my own personal goal on the 21st and swim 24 laps.  My evening celebration to toast health, achievements, memories, family, friends, life and love is postponed to a later date.

I NEED PHOTOS...please send me your photos on June 21st, 2017, sharing your Longest Day activity and personal goal.  I am hoping to put together a video.

I want to share a quote from a line in the movie Easy A.   As Stanley Tucci is knocking off movies to watch on his bucket list, he says "Then lets bucket list this bitch".  While working on our own "bucket list", we are taking care of ourselves, honoring those fighting this disease and helping raise funds to support caregivers and research.   Eventually we will find a cure, let's "bucket list" this disease.
