Hiking along the trails on the farm is one way that Vickie finds relief from stress after a busy day. She often takes one of the llamas with her for walking on the trails. They both benefit from walking for exercise, and at the same time enjoy each other’s company on the trail.
Vickie teaches you about llamas along the journey and describes the elements of nature that they encounter during the walk. Listen to the llama hum, the creek rushing by, the Sycamore leaves crunching under foot and other sounds from the walk.
There is a Pinterest board that Vickie maintains at www.pinterest.com/heartsongfit about hiking with llamas for exercise. Repinning a pin from that board to your own Pinterest account would be a fun way to share this episode with others!

Memory of Life in the 1940s by Lucille Maris – Saying Goodbye
Vickie has been interviewing her Mom, Lucille Maris, who is 91 ½ years, for the book she is working on about her parents’ life during WWII which stems from the memoirs her dad, Lt. Col., James R. Maris drafted about his 30 missions as a bomber pilot. There will be more about the book in later episodes. For now, please enjoy this delightful story that Lucille shares about the day she and her girlfriends ran to the top of the Hotel Jayhawk, Topeka, Kansas, to wave farewell to their husbands as the men buzzed the top of the building in their B-24 bombers and headed on their journey overseas. Future episodes of the podcast will close with additional short stories told by Lucille to Vickie.
