Weights

There are lots of things in life I want to do more of like read, write and delight over more fettuccine alfredo. That last item is a no, no, but I'll leave it here just to 'stir the pot' this frigid morning. It's 2 above zero F outside our back door. As a matter of fact, a full plate of fettuccine would probably go a long ways towards keeping me toasty today. That sounds good to me, but around Elenka that's going to ring hollow, so I better move to another of my favorite topics. Exercise. She likes it. I don't. She does it. I don't. Well, I do it, but it's only in my mind and that, of course, only brings intense laughter and broad smiles to most around me. I know it's important. I know I should do it, but... Oh well, these arm weights will have to wait, because I've got lots to do today, like walking and other things. And besides, tonight might be just a great night to take in some place like the Corner Room and their wonderfully entertaining Italain cuisine. 
Buona salute!

  2. Much more relaxing to photograph them. Use the heavy camera.

  3. I do my best around here.
    Birdman actually gets a little mad when I give him the dirty eyeball whenever he orders high fat items aka alfredo.
    He hasn't ordered it lately, but it comes up in snarky conversations now and then.
    The above is a perfect example.
    (I'm good at the dirty eyeball.....ask my kids at school.)

  4. oh, 20 pounds is a lot. i use 7 pounds in each hand and can just barely get through my reps. and surely, E, you can make a low fat alfredo for the bird...there's nothing you can't do.

  14. Doc won't let me do 20# weights anymore. Use to miss it, times have changed. I'd rather lift a fork with good food...pasta being one of them.
