June 20, 2011


 Got any number of my routine physicals stuff out of the way this week.  It would be nice to be able to check in to one place and have it scheduled so that one moves from room to room where they can poke, prod, squeeze and look in rude places all in one day – instead of these series of trips for one of this and one of that.  The main thing is though, that all the results are good, which, knock on wood, to date they are.  Except for the fact that I am getting older and crankier and I hear there is no cure for that…

We dropped in on the New York Sports Club in West Nyack. Place looks to be a house of torture.   However, they are opening a big one near us this summer and we have the blessings of our quack to join. It should be very helpful if they don’t kill us in the process.  I walk an average of three miles a day, so that’s good.  But I need work on my balance, on my stamina, and the unwanted extra inches around my waist.  It ain’t fair.  Most of my life I couldn’t gain weight on a bet.  I married at 36 and was 5’6” and weighted 110 lbs – soaking wet.

(Above is Virginia, at that weight, about that age and soaking wet - Warner)
 Then a year later I stopped working (physically demanding job), stopped smoking (3-4 packs a day) and learned how to cook.  Bam! I gained 60 lbs.

A lot of that has come off.   Just not all.  And it is annoying as all  hell.  Especially now as I get older and things well….they shift. 

(I've no idea where she thinks that extra weight is, that dress doesn't cover enough to hide it. And she already knew how to cook. -Warner)

 I weigh less than I did when I retired 9 years ago, but I can’t wear any of the wardrobe I had build up in those days. Sometimes life just isn’t fair….
