Now the news you’ve REALLY been waiting for — did I lose any weight this week??

Hey, I know we're all excited about the presidential election, but if you can just keep your nail-biting to a minimum for a few minutes, let me give you the REALLY important news of the day: 198.2 Well, down a pound ... not quite what I was hoping for, but better than I expected, especially … Continue reading Now the news you’ve REALLY been waiting for — did I lose any weight this week??

Just a flesh wound!

Yeah, it's a teensy little gain: 198.0 But it could have been worse! Last week, in case you didn't notice, I took the week off and did one of my legendary "road trips" to beautiful Phoenix, Arizona, where it only got up to about 122 degrees Fahrenheit at, um, 9:00 AM. So not too bad, … Continue reading Just a flesh wound!

Back From the Brink!

Good morning, everyone! Sorry to be a little late. I'm been mixing my Trader Joe's Breakfast Blend (coarse grind) with some pre-Covid era decaf, in order to save on trips to the store, so I'm having a little trouble getting completely awake and alert! Hopefully that'll be remedied soon (hint hint), but meantime, I'm thrilled … Continue reading Back From the Brink!

My well of catchy blog titles is empty right now, sorry!

Yeah, it's Wednesday and it's Weigh-In Time, but for the life of me, I can't think of a catchy title today! Just can't seem to get those ... things ... you know, in my head ... working ... Yeah, well, guess I'm not the only one, huh? Anyhoo, let's do the weight first because it's … Continue reading My well of catchy blog titles is empty right now, sorry!

Wednesday Wildflower Walk Weigh-In!

Good morning, peeps! Great to see you! How are you holding up? Feel free to rant in the comments! First things first: the weigh-in! 197.4 Down a pound, which is nothing to sneeze at! And speaking of sneezing ... yours truly saw some lovely wildflowers on a hiking trail in an undisclosed location in the … Continue reading Wednesday Wildflower Walk Weigh-In!

Insert Humorous Blog Post Title Here (or, “What? It’s Wednesday Already?”)

Yeah, I wasn't really prepared for this, after sustaining a minor but very annoying injury on an otherwise enjoyable hike this past Monday when, in my best Peter Griffin imitation, I slipped and whacked my kneecap on a very hard, irritatingly unyielding rock! Contrary to all the concerned Facebook comments I got when I posted … Continue reading Insert Humorous Blog Post Title Here (or, “What? It’s Wednesday Already?”)

Hiking for Fun and (sometimes) Weight Loss!

First, let's get this out of the "weigh" (get it?): Oh, it's funny, all right! All humor at 50by60.com is guaranteed to make you laugh, or you get a full refund on your admission price! OK, okay*! Here ya go, my Offishul Way-In for the Weak: 195.4 There ya go, down a little from last … Continue reading Hiking for Fun and (sometimes) Weight Loss!

Another nice Chatsworth walk!

Yesterday's walk was on the Not really a "hike," per se. To me, a hike involves hills, gullies, backpacks, and of course, mud galore.  No, yesterday was definitely a gentle, peaceful walk! And it's someplace I've been before -- in fact, I blogged about it this past January: Brown's Creek Bike Path in Chatsworth, California! … Continue reading Another nice Chatsworth walk!

Better late than never! (Unusual Tuesday weigh-in)

Hey everyone, sorry for the one-day delay on the weigh! Had to sing at a liturgy yesterday morning -- usually the weekday liturgies are on Tuesday but for some reason this week was different. And since I'm the only cantor who doesn't have an actual job, It's always down to me! Oh well, afterwards I … Continue reading Better late than never! (Unusual Tuesday weigh-in)

Friday laziness: My Very First Reblog!

Following Penny Wilson's advice from a couple of weeks ago, I'm reblogging this post from Drew Robinson's "Trail To Peak." I really love all the photos -- looks like a fun hike. So ENJOY -- and I'll see you Monday for the weigh-in and an ORIGINAL post! Hiking Bane Ridge Trail in Chino Hills State … Continue reading Friday laziness: My Very First Reblog!
