Gettin’ things done and makin’ plans!

Well, hey howdy y'all! How the heck are ya? I'm just relaxing after a semi-busy week. Had my PAP smear yesterday, which went fine. The doctor was in and out in less than 5 minutes.

Yeah, I had to take a break last week, due to a sad situation in the 50by60 family -- my younger brother, Michael, passed away from COVID-19.

Good morning, and welcome back, everyone! Hope y'all had a wonderful [insert Springtime religious/secular holiday name of choice]!

So what are you doing for Hallowe’en this year?

Well, the weight isn't changing much -- up a little, down a little, up a little -- basically holding steady at: 197.8 No complaints from me, though, as long as it stays under the dreaded 200!

Just a flesh wound!

Yeah, it's a teensy little gain: 198.0 But it could have been worse!

So not too bad, … Continue reading Just a flesh wound!
