Treadmill Tuesday Time

Leave a comment

I’ve decided to start each day on the treadmill or taking a walk from now on. Got to get my energy levels up so I can live longer and accomplish some more each day. I’m looking forward to when it warms up a bit and I can walk comfortably outside. And I hope it results in some more images. I need to get out and about more and get those cameras in my hands.

Yep, got to make exercise more a part of my life again. I broke out some light weights yesterday. Going to use one of my best friends for help because he is a workout fiend. I’m sure he is an expert at technique. I’m too old to hurt myself. But there is one risk I will take. And that is playing some basketball when it warms up again. So neighbors, get ready for the bouncing ball in the driveway again.

Finding some common ground.

I see we have some weather headed our way this coming morning. Grab some real estate and hang on. actually we haven’t had too much snow this year so far which is fine with me as someone who puts in some miles behind the wheel. Please be careful out there. Seems like an awful lot of us have trouble driving on dry pavement so you know what this will bring.

I see I missed posting this on a Tuesday despite the title. Such is life. Looks like I’ll have two post today. Think I’ll try a few weather shots later, unless it’s a coat of ice. And then we will do more a local approach. One that doesn’t include landing on my behind and maybe cameras in the air.


Random Thoughts of the Day

Help if you can, if you see someone or something that needs help.

I miss the purr of a cat. It’s very soothing.

I had a wonderful dinner with my daughter this evening. She lifts my spirits. She makes me proud. She is a wonderful person. I’m one lucky father. I’m so glad that her and my Son have such good judgement and caring natures.

I see Daffy Donald wants to throw a military parade. I guess he hasn’t heard of the phrase “speak softly but carry a big stick.” Yeah I gave him a nickname. He’s so in favor of calling people “little” or some other belittling reference. Hell I could have gone with Carrot Top but I do have some respect for the office even though he lacks it. And it’s not like the streets of DC need tanks driving on them, they have enough holes and ruts already. And you know he is going to demand tanks because we are the biggest and baddest and boldest and hugeist and humungust of anything anywhere in any world.

Ok, now I feel better to get that out of my system.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
