Not even when that seems to be your "sport" of choice, and your hubby has left branches & logs, dropped from 40 feet in the air, on your path? He was kind enough to cut it out of my walking trail.
So yesterday I spent cleaning out my 5-drawer ... Read more

... Thank you Ozzy.
Those 10 pounds I gained overnight. I lost them overnight too.

Walking the Halls of Health?
Wy father is having heart ablation surgery today to hopefully stop his "fight" against his pacemaker. We both have screwy heart-wiring so I'm taking notes in what NOT to do when I get older!
