I Think I Hurt Myself

Last evening, Charles and Gaye had dinner with Joe and me at our house. Knowing that I am gearing up for a change in lifestyle (quitting smoking, losing weight, treating my sleep apnea), Joe suggested we all go for a walk after we finished eating. With our two Scotties leashed and ready to go along...we headed out. From our home on Quapaw, we were to make a round trip with midpoint being here.

Slight drizzle began to fall as we turned the corner from Prospect onto Central, but we kept a steady and fairly quick pace. Especially considering all three of us guys are smokers(but soon to be ex-smokers). When we made it up Central to The_Aristocrat, the large metal grate which I most always step around, happened to end up under my feet...then suddenly, I ended up slamming my whole body against it.

I am quite sore today.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again...exercise is BAD for you.

Quitting smoking?? No one likes a quitter.

I'm sorry you got hurt...good thing you're married to a nurse.

Be careful out there...

Want to lose weight? Try the South Beach Diet. I have been on it for a month along with walking I have lost 15 lbs.
I go to the school down the road and walk on their track. Its flat with nice curves. If I could just figure out how to get out of the truck without hurting myself!

i looked at the photos and was all set to say "at least you crashed into a grand structure," then i continued down and oh. my. stars. what a hideous thing! and in hot springs?? gracious.

having dodge city roots, i remember when "urban renewal" swept the city, doing away with the genuine Front Street of Marshall Dillon fame and making way for fresh! new! hideously ugly! buildings much like your aristocrat. aristocrat indeed.

hope you're on the mend.
