Finally made level 20, and not so much as a congrats, or WooHoo from Spark. <em>24</em> Wed, 28 Oct 2015 08:38:07 EST Motivation!! Took the wife to lunch at Golden Corral cafeteria today.

I LOVE Banana pudding, but have not had any since I started my fitness regimen 4 years ago. <em>4</em> <BR> <BR> Anyway, I was standing there, debating with myself, when a quarter ton of rude female just about knocked me over with her bedonk butt, and scooped up almost 1/2 of the tray of puddin...
