Today is ...

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

... D-Day.

... our Dr Dani & Big David's 14th anniversary. They said it wouldn't last.

Our children have so far picked historically easy-to-remember dates to get married. Dave & Carolyn are 11 September 2010. (9/11)



5 June1968

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

Those of us here who remember that date probably remember it because of the events at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles California. It was the night that Senator Robert F Kennedy was assassinated after claiming victory in the California Democrat Party Presidential Primary. It was the second major political assassination in 1968; Dr Martin Luther King was murdered in April. It was a bizarre year:the Tet Offensive in Viet Nam, LBJ withdrawing from the race for president 1968, King's assassination and the riots that followed, RFK's assassination, the riots at the Democrat National Convention in Chicago, the nearly annual urban riots in several cities across the country, the election of Richard Nixon because of the wildcard George Wallace, and the year ending on an up note with Apollo 8 circling the Moon.

I was in ninth and tenth grade that year. It was near the end of the school year in ninth grade and I broke all the school rules (I was in a Catholic High School) by walking around school all day with a transistor radio with the earphone stuck in my ear. Even Father Warner, the principal, asked me for news of the day.

I look back at that day as the one that turned me into a news junkie. After MLK, which got my attention, and RFK which held my attention, I started to follow the news and even at one point in my life considered a career in journalism.

How my trainer is working out

Sunday, June 03, 2012

He's apparently working out just fine several times every day with several different clients.

Actually, he's working out just fine for the both of us. For me, I can now lift my left arm vertically, almost straight up, to about 5 degrees from vertical, with little more than some discomfort. I still slightly wince. A couple of months ago, I couldn't even get to horizontal, about 15 degrees short and then it was painful. I still cannot reach behind me satisfactorily, My reach is still not 100%.

I am adding weight to my modified strength training ... no lifting over my head, no push ups or pull ups, only modified planks. I am using most of the machines and I am starting to add weights to challenge myself. 150 pound short armed row, 150 pound leg press. But those were just showing off.

AND She(WMBO) shocked me by lifting a cinder block with relative ease, so David's workouts are working for her too. In fact she picked it up with such confidence that she surprised even herself. And I am still being very careful about picking up such weights. And when I do, it doesn't take long for my shoulder to tire. She is doing even better than I am. I'm so happy for her.

The trainer is definitely working for both of us. And he is my sister-in-law's husband. And he is one year younger than me. So I could look like that someday.
