I'm a 70 year old married male who lives in New Hampshire.

BTW, "Boppy" is what my Grandson started calling me when he was 2 years old. He's now 13. He dubbed, my wife, Beth, "Mimi", about the same time. He still calls us by these names, today. And, so we shall both be known by the family ...

Pet peeves: censorship and wading through religious blather (pardon the redundancy) to get to any topic!

I had reached a goal weight of 180, had a succession of surgeries (shoulder/arm, abdominal wall, back), started weight lifting again, raised my goal weight to 185. Then I had new problems with my other shoulder/arm, and back, and had to stop weight lifting and some other exercises. I've lowered my goal weight again to 180, and am adjusting to the new required caorie budget reduction -- especially sinve much exercise is off the table, again.

    emoticon Fun Spring Holiday Workout emoticon

    1 Dye about 100 eggs, raw preferably, bright and bold colors. Eggs outdated by a few months or more work best. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    2 Go outside and bunny hop around the yard hiding the eggs. Squat to put each egg in place. emoticon

    3 Gather a few good natured friends or family members you don't particularly care for. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    4 On the count of 3, run to find the eggs. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    5 Upon reaching an egg, squat down to pick it up, stand, and pitch it at the closest opponent. Alternate arms to insure an equal work out on both sides. emoticon

    6 Repeat until all eggs are broken beyond re-throwing. emoticon

    7 Don't forget that cleaning (up) can be a workout in and of itself. emoticon

    And that is a wonderfully fit way to celebrate any spring holiday. Aren't you ready to hop to it?
