Harder To Wake Up

image

It occurred to me this morning that it is getting harder and harder to wake up. Yesterday I skipped my exercises and slept an extra 45 minutes. Last night, went to sleep around 9:30, slept good, but still had to wrench myself out of bed with a crowbar. No problems once I’m up, it’s just the act of getting up that seems harder.
Why? Tell me why!

Have a gooood day!

The Ballerina

image

……there was a very drunk regular sitting on his usual stool in a very crowded bar. He was very drunk, leaning on the bar with his head down.

The place was packed, and this woman came up behind him to try to get a drink, waving at the bartender and calling.  She had very hairy armpits. She accidently  bumped into the drunk and he turned around on his stool, and caught an eyeful of her hairy armpit, turned back around and called to the bartender, “HEY BARTENDER! BRING THE BALLERINA A DRINK!”

The bartender came down, took the woman’s drink order, gave her her drink and she took off, into the crowd.

A little while later, the same woman comes up to the same spot at the bar to get another drink. Waving to get the bartenders attention, she accidently bumps the drunk again, he turns around and gets another shot in the eye of her hairy armpit, turns to the bartender and calls “HEY BARTENDER! BRING THE BALLERINA ANOTHER DRINK!” The bartender gives her her drink and off she goes into the crowd.

The bartender says to the drunk, “You come in here all the time, I’ve never seen that woman before, and I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen her before either.  What makes you think she’s a ballerina?

The drunk replied, “Anybody who can lift their leg that high HAS to be a ballerina!”

Ha ha. Get it? Have a good day.

New Casio G-Shock Watch

I got a new watch, a Casio G-Shock. My old watch, which I got in 1982 (for $40, which was outrageously expensive to me) is not a G-Shock, but I’m sure I recall the first G-Shocks were identical to my watch

My Casio has been a very good watch. I’ve been through several high end, dive watch/computers that have all failed, and the Casio has always been there, my faithful backup.

Now, even with a new battery, sometimes the display goes blank and I push a button and it comes back to life, but needs to be reset. So I got a new one.

Lets see, 1982 to 2014, that’s 32 years. So if I get the same performance with this one, I should be good, watchwise, till the year 2046!

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!!!

Thursday Thoughts

Today the best I could get was 14 jumps.
The dogs are out in the yard and I am posting before my shower.
I have nothing in mind to post about so I’m just rambling
After I posted day-before-yesterday, I downloaded Wunderground. It seems by far the best weather app.
Glad it’s almost the weekend
That is all for today.
Over and out!

Jumping Rope

Day before yesterday, in the afternoon, I made a jump rope. I read an article about how good it was for you and thought I’d give it a whirl.

Yesterday morning I did 12 jumps without tripping up. Today was  23. I try  to go about 5 minutes.

I never jumped rope in my life till yesterday, but it got my heart pumping good.

Also yesterday, I stopped after work and swam. First time in a long time.

Try it! you’ll like it!

I could tell I was in a better mood last night and I slept relatively well.

Have a good day!
