On our way to church this morning I was taking my usual nap when I was nudged by Seth to wake me up. I looked at him and he was like "Did you see that? Look behind you!" So I turned around and looked out the back window. By that time all I could see was a big ball rolling down the side of the road in the opposite direction. I said "What was that?" "I think it was a man with a dog and pushing a giant earth ball." I had to find out if anyone else had seen this and looked up "Walking earth ball missouri" into google search. This is what came up in the results... http://www.worldguy.org/ Erik Bendl is walking from Louisville, Kentucky to Kansas City (or farther) to raise awareness for diabetes. He is promoting exercise to help or prevent the disease.
On our way back from church we decided that if we saw him again we would stop and talk to him and take a picture. Sure enough right before we got into Sedalia he was stopped at a gas station. Seth asked him if he had eaten yet but the man told him he just ate a hamburger. So Seth insisted on buying something for him, he asked for a candy bar and a gatorade. While Seth went in to buy I petted the dog named "Nice." It was a sweet dog!
What a creative way to raise awareness huh? I thought so.
