Chattanooga Choo Choo

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Winding up 3 days in Chattanooga. I will have to say that I have really enjoyed it. The food is rather overwhelming - what with Sticky Fingers Ribs; City Cafe desserts; Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger; Mallow Mushroom - you name it. But the opportunities for walking it off are numerous too. There is the wonderful downtown with the Bijou theater, the Pedestrian Bridge; the Hunter Art Museum, all located on streets that remind you of Streets of San Francisco. Lovely town. Lovely People. Even free electric trams if you are not inclined to walk about.

  Don't know where is Chattanooga :p lol but I'm so glad you enjoyed the trip. And I'm even more happy that you walked around the city because that's the only way to get to know a city, and walking counts as doing exercise so good for you!!!!

Today might not have been the calendar beginning of summer, but it was in Tennessee. For breakfast, we had a little frost, followed by sunshine all day and a sweater cool evening.
NO RAIN. Herself has gone to the gym, while I remain here in my recliner with a slightly bum knee. Have a great night, ya'll

    Last Friday it felt like winter and the last couple days it's been in the mid-80's. Then just 3 hours north they were planting the garden with snow around the edges. Crazy weather......

I'm hanging out in the basement today ~ laundry is the excuse ~ but coolness is my reward!

Time does Fly When You're Having Fun

Thursday, March 26, 2009

It's probably a function of getting older, but time increasingly seems to flit by. I was working in the yard this weekend when I struck up a conversation with one of the neighbor guys. He was digging away in his flowerbeds, planting stuff. He stopped for a few minutes to chat and said," You realize this is all YOUR fault." I must have looked mystified, which I was, and he grinned," My wife said, look at that guy out there working away and young as you are you're sitting here watching basketball. TIVO it and get out there. And you know, it feels pretty good."

Well, that made my day. Of course, now I have to be out there a lot more don't I?

I'll blame MOB08/2009

Spring is Here?

Sunday, March 15, 2009

It seems that the days just fly by. I was just noticing the last blog I had was a MONTH ago? So much has happened since then. Lost some dear friends to cancer, celebrated my grandson's birthday, and a birthday myself that I almost missed. What sort of price can you put on being able to be alive and with those you love? Take care and God Bless Us All, Everyone.

Thirty Valentine's Days, but whose counting?

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Who would have thought? MOB and I have been together 30 Valentine's now. This one almost didn't come due to that little heart attack thing in January, still here we are. If anything it has helped us to focus more on staying as healthy, fit and active as we can in order to hope for many more Valentine's to come. Who would have thought? It has been a long road and often a really rough one, but here we are. Love you, MOB.

    Glad you are still here to celebrate that 30 yrs. Hopefully you will still be together another 30. Keep up the hard work, for no one promised us that it would be easy. Friends and loved ones helps us through those hard times.
So I am telling you as a friend , get up, dust yourself off, and continue on the path to a healthier you.! God bless you and MOB.
