Crossing a stile on Usk Valley Walk, June 2011





My new bike--a Cruiser one-speed with coaster brakes. Old style for an oldie.

I'm a retired psychology professor. I've lost 50 pounds in the past several years. I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes 15 years ago but have tight control (HbA1C 5.7) using metformin, diet, and exercise. I either walk on a treadmill 30 minutes and ride an exercycle 30 minutes or walk outdoors 1 hour daily. I also have sleep apnea that was diagnosed 20 years ago, although I have had it most of my adult life. I use a BiPap every night. I have heart disease and had 3 stents placed in my right coronary artery in 2012. I also have occluded small coronary arteries which cause angina.

I have been married for 54 years (June 2014) and have two daughters, both happily married, and five grandchildren. Our middle grandson was killed in an auto accident eight years ago. He was 19.

We are both retired and love to travel. You can tell this from my photos. We usually take one month-long international trip and one month-long trip within the US every year, along with several brief road trips around Minnesota and South Dakota and down to Texas. In the last year our travel has been limited due to my heart problems and my husband's aftereffects of several small strokes.

I didn't have the time.
......but I made time.
I didn't have the knowledge.
......but I did what I knew.
I didn't have the support.
.....but I learned to support myself.
I didn't have the confidence,
.....but the confidence came with results.
I had a lot going against me,
.....but I had enough going for me.
I had plenty of excuses,
.....but I chose not to use any of them.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. The night before our flight home we stayed in a hotel 15 km from CDG. The breakfast for 8 Euros was so puny that we ate in the convenience store of the gas station where we filled up the rental car.
CDG is a maze alright. We messed up trying to return the car and turned the wrong way into a bus lane. From the look on the bus driver's face, I'm glad I don't understand French.

Thanks so much for your support on my blog! It was so much fun...I love kayaking, especially the views along the way (even if I have to give the geese their space!)

I hope you've had a great weekend too!
