Hi Ruthinian, welcome to the micro story party. :) ~~ Nice take on the prompt. I've been there both ways.

In my younger days the 'mountain' was nothing, I've climbed a lot. Now with my knees like hers with a knee joint replacement in one, forget it!

So sorry for my tardiness in visiting. I was just preparing the new week's SY and saw your entry.

My joints related to you tale. Good one and a nice use of the week's word. Hope to see you again this week.
