The Importance of Walking

Walking can add minutes to your life.
   This enables you at 85 years old
   to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing
   home at $7000 per month.  

   My grandpa started walking
    five miles a day when he was 60.
    Now he's 97 years  old
    and we don't know where he is.
   I like long walks,
    especially when they are taken
    by people who annoy me.
The only reason I would take up walking
    is so that I could hear heavy breathing again
    I have to walk early in the morning,
    before my brain figures out what I'm doing.
I joined a health club last year,
    spent about 400 bucks.
    Haven't lost a pound.
    Apparently you have to go there.

Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise',
    I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

The advantage of exercising every day
    is so when you die, they'll say,
    'Well, she looks good doesn't she.'

   If you are going to try cross-country skiing,
  start with a small country.
   I know I got a lot of exercise
    the last few years,......
    just getting over the hill.

  We all get heavier as we get older,
    because there's a lot more information in our heads.
    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

   Every time I start thinking too much
     about how I look,
    I just find a Happy Hour
and by the  time I leave,
    I look just fine.
   You could run this over to your friends
   but, what the heck, just e-mail it to them

If you don't forward this to some of your friends within the next 5 minutes your belly button will unscrew and 
                    your butt will fall off.  Really.... It's true!

NOT funny, I don't think.
Tomorrow morning I have to go do the doctor's, as my hip and knee are making funny crunchy noises.
I am terrified that I shall have to curtail my 5 - 8 miles a day.
Wish me luck.
Actually, these bits are very funny. I will take them with me tomorrow.

I forwarded this before commenting -- I didn't want to run the risk of being over my five minutes.
Thanks for the chuckles. This helps make walking fun.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
