    I needed a little snack, so I cut up a cucumber, and I'm dipping it in a little rance dressing. I didn't even put any salt on it.

    (A bacon sammich sure would be good, about now.)

    The trouble with a b.s (bacon sammich) is, it tastes a lot better than it wears.
    But I wouldn't turn it down as part of my last meal.

    Went to see my doc in the AM about the knee. Nothing definitive yet - hopefully I can do away with the crutches in another couple of days.

    Went to the dentist in the PM for my third of six (?) visits for the root canal. Visit two took care of the pain in the tooth, now it's just a pain in the rear. I know, I know - if the dentist is off by that much, must be time to find another dentist.

    Or another Dr. altogether. Dr. Phil? He deals with that kind of pain on a daily basis.

    Well, the upside of a root canal is that tooth will never hurt again.

    That must have been one heck of a deep root! LOL

    If by what I have learned over the years, allow me to help one person to start to prepare. If all the mistakes I have made, let me give one person the wisdom that allows them to save their life or the life of a loved one in an emergency. Then I will truly know that all the work I have done will have been worth every minute.

    Ever since My accident at work and the on going problems with that, I have realized that I am getting older and I can't keep abusing my body like I have. Quitting smoking over a year ago helped. BUT not enough! So Over the last couple of weeks I have been cutting back on the pepsi, went from 4-5 litre bottles a day to 1-2 12 oz. bottles a day. Drinking a lot more water instead. Working everyday in the yard ( as much as I can with my injuries) walking at least 1/2 mile a day somedays over a mile. Trying to ( and it's harder than quitting smoking) cutting down on the burgers and fried foods. Cleaned up and got the bowflex machine ready to use when I can.

    Winnie, way to go girl!!!!
    Looking forward to having you around ahelluva lot longer!

    OS, you rock!!!
    You're attacking on all fronts--not easy, but I'm sure very gratifying. I imagine that Mrs. OS is over the moon.

    I, on the other hand, am trying to give up that second glass of wine at dinner and eating bread (in restaurants) before meals.
    The wine is harder than bread.

    I'll be joining you on the walking front soon OS! Good luck with everything else. I made the change from fizz and dilute juice to water many years ago. My only real vice NOW is Tea(far too much!), the odd pint of Guinness and butter.

    I know it ain't easy, but it is doable! I haven't had a smoke, in over 10 months. If I can do it....anyone can. You hang in there, and just yell when you need some support. We'll be here, for ya!

    I went for a bike ride, this morning.

    The other end of the bike path, that I like to ride on, comes out at the rest area. Today, when I got there, I made the loop around the rest area....adding about 1/2 a mile to the ride. (Making it about 6.5 miles.)

    (Crash shamed me into a longer ride.) LOL
