I was debating just copying & pasting yesterday's post, to see if you'd get the joke. But I decided, nahh, that's way too esoteric. Anyway, Day 6's walk is done. And in spite of the rain, it was very nice, although about 20 minutes into it, we saw what was *almost* a nasty car-vs-bike accident … Continue reading Day 6 — It’s Groundhog Day (Again)
Happy Friday, everyone! (**UPDATE: Day 5 walk DONE! see photos at end!)

Happy Monday, everyone! Well, last night I indulged in a special treat -- prime rib (well done) with mashed potatoes and gravy and Yorkshire pudding, mmm! So it's really not that much of a surprise that this morning's weigh-in is: 181.6 Grr! Ya know what? I've been hangin' out in the '80s too long!
