Its time to stop thinking about doing something and doing something.  Ah you may ask where this new-found motivation came from. Well today my better half convinced me I needed new swim trunks. She was right of course because when I put two pair on last year the elastic was shot. Good thing they had stout strings.

Anyway, I found a suit, my better half insisted I try on 3. So off I go. Well of course I like the first one I picked. But none would hide the fact I’m a bit overweight. Not bad but I’ve looked better. I’d say for 2/3 of my 60 years I’ve been in good shape. The last 20, I’ve had no disapline and it shows.

And its to the point where just cutting back on sodas wouldn’t do enough. Yep I’m going to have to get my behind up and exercising. Also on a regular basis. So off I go to the treadmill.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Finding your significant other is one of the most important things in the world. You both having your health to enjoy it is second.

Missing and thinking of an old friend whose birthday was yesterday. I used to touch base with him that day always to remind him the Yankees were going to beat the O’s, regardless of what year it was and who was doing better. We could both take it as well as give it.  Well Big Pete, it looks like its going to be my year. Wishing you were here to punish and joke with. RIP Bob.

OK, I promise to pick up the camara today. And the Dremel tool. And I promise to write more.

I’ve scheduled a day of vacation for this coming week. Life is GOOD when you have vacation time.
