Aw crap, looks like it’s cancer, dagnabit! (a less-than-inspirational post title, but then again, it’s a less-than-inspirational disease, ain’t it?)

Hi everyone! Well, if you're in my circle of family and Facebook friends, you've already heard the bad news. Now it's time to let you, my faithful 50by60.com blog followers, know as well.

Dreams, prayers, raccoons, and Andrew Lloyd Webber, all on the same blog just for you!

Are we ... awake? So I had this weird dream (and yeah, I'm going to make you read about it!). I was in this big hall where people were singing what sounded more or less like hymns, happy ones, and lots of children running around, so it was probably my semi-annual visit to Heaven for … Continue reading Dreams, prayers, raccoons, and Andrew Lloyd Webber, all on the same blog just for you!

This was unexpected, sorta like a rabbit in the front yard!

Welp, I was all set to apologize for yet another weight gain, but my scales surprised me this morning! 207.4 Actually down a bit since last week, so that was a pleasant surprise. Sorta like the rabbit that popped up in our front yard this past week! No, no, this one's not quite as bad … Continue reading This was unexpected, sorta like a rabbit in the front yard!

To boldly go where no weight loss blog has gone before!

Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today!! Nope, no worries, your calendar is correct (assuming it says October 13th)! However, I'm taking yet another break, so I thought I'd just mess with your head a little! However, it is definitely cold out there today!

Don’t worry, blog’s not broken, even though I keep taking breaks!

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. It was unexpected, and I took a trip back home to visit my parents and sister for a few days. Three Boomer siblings in the '60s If you're … Continue reading Don’t worry, blog’s not broken, even though I keep taking breaks!

My brain is not cooperating!

Well, hey, everyone! I'm sorry to say my weight has gone up yet again this week, a whopping 209.0 and to be honest, I'm kinda wondering if my brain is just not processing the orders I'm giving it correctly. I mean, several times in the past few weeks, I've told it that I want to … Continue reading My brain is not cooperating!

Pumpkin spice time again!?

Hey, everyone! First, the weight - it's up a tad: 206.2 but I'm actually okay with that, as it was MUCH higher earlier in the week.

Cats are driving me crazy, and it’s a short trip!

Well, howdy, pardners! First of all, let me give you the EXCELLENT news that Pumpkin Spice, who last week we were convinced was lost forever, decided to pop back into existence from that rip in the time/space portal she'd disappeared into the previous week! So we're happy about that! Only she had a humungous horrible … Continue reading Cats are driving me crazy, and it’s a short trip!

I know I say this every week, but…

Hey, everyone! I know I say this every week, but I really do have to keep this short 'n sweet (like me, hee hee)! Reason being I have a doctor's appointment this morning, so I don't wanna get all caught up in the adrenaline of writing a killer blog post and wind up being late … Continue reading I know I say this every week, but…

It’s “House”! (Well, maybe!)

Okay, first things first -- I *think* I've picked my new binge watch, and (drum roll please), I *think* it's gonna be this guy: Yup, it was a toss-up between Gregory House, M.D. and the American version of Betty, la Fea. However, since Mr. 50by60 and I have been enjoying her newer series, Superstore, together, … Continue reading It’s “House”! (Well, maybe!)
