Sunday, June 17, 2012      9 comments

Two things happened yesterday that I feel pretty good about. The first is that I was "scheduled" to do walking for the 5K Your Way walking plan I'm working on. It was hot. It was humid. I was tired. I didn't want to do it. But...I did do it an... Read more

Wednesday, June 13, 2012      10 comments

Over the past several weeks on the Over 60++ Team we've had some discussions about potatoes (among other things)! Several teammates (including me) love potatoes! So much so they've threatened to steal mine from the garden. But, I did promise to ... Read more

Last Weekend's Project

Thursday, April 19, 2012      12 comments

Some of my team mates know that I live in an old farm house. It was built in 1900 and ever since we bought it (almost 5 years ago), we've worked on one project after another. We do most of the work ourselves, but we know when to call someone els... Read more

Slip, Slidin' Away

Tuesday, February 28, 2012      16 comments

Remember that song? The chorus goes something like this: Slip, slidin' away. Slip, slidin' away. You know the nearer your destination, the more you're slip, slidin' away. This last month or so I've felt like I was slip, sliding... Read more

Sunday, January 15, 2012      12 comments

Yes, you can stay on track and eat healthy and even get some exercise when on the road! I remember reading SP blogs about this, but figured it didn't apply to me. Since we just finished a 5 day road trip, here's a few things I learned, and a lo... Read more

These Shoes Are Made for Walkin'

Monday, December 26, 2011      12 comments

How many of you remember that old song by Nancy Sinatra? It was pretty popular some time around the winter of '65, but I think it really was "These Boots are Made for Walkin." I've been thinking a lot about shoes lately. My Mom has a lot of t... Read more

Shopping When You're in Between...the Good and the Not-So-Good

Thursday, December 01, 2011      8 comments

Having shed 48# since last May, I'm at a point where my clothes are mostly all too big. I've taken some slacks in, but now they only have a pocket opening big enough for my thumb to fit. I've discarded and sent clothes to Goodwill and the shel... Read more

Oh, My...How the Times have Changed (A Funny--to me--Birthday Story)

Wednesday, November 16, 2011      9 comments

Yesterday I celebrated my 68th birthday (for you doing the math, that means I was born in 1943)! For some reason, each year my Mom calls me to tell me my birthday story, which typically has amounted to a weather report for the day I was born. S... Read more
