    Happy Sunday all - 38 this morning and rainy - feels like a curl up in a blanket and drink hot tea kind of day.

    Hey there, all you crazy people! Haven't checked into this thread for several days. Good to see y'all are still rockin' and rollin'!

    It's good to be busy, but this is ridiculous! Working the weekend, too. Did get a hike with the dog yesterday and I will take her out later today, too. Have an awesome week!
  • Hi everyone. I'll be 42 early next year, I've been in this site 8 years ago but I stopped after sometime and now I just recently came back here. The cliche "life begins at 40" rings true to me.

    Feel free to add me.

    Had a nice day on the river with some people who like to PADDLE not float. We covered 20 miles in just under four hours, and 48 minutes of that time was a lunch stop.

    My boat is pretty fast, and some of this group is, well let's just say they are older than middle aged. I still struggled to keep up much of the time. I give myself slack, though. One boat was a tandem. Two engines! Another was a Clipper Sea-1. That's almost 18' long semi-decked canoe that the paddler had built specifically for him to run the Yukon race. He's entered nine times and finished six. Holy cats. The other fellow has been racing canoes for 50 years. So it's not like I am slow. Just ~relatively~ slow.

    Nice day. I just wish the sun had come out sooner than 25 minutes after we got off the water. Oh well.

    Hi all!
    Great start to the week so far
    I'm recovering from gallbladder surgery ( I've already lost 52 pounds so the huge surge sent my gallbladder into overdrive and it quit on me)
    I'm finally able to start moving more. Going for a walk after dinner (it's been close to 100* every day for over a week)
    I'm looking forward to finally moving toward the end goal (another 35ish pounds) and taking advantage of being able to have an ACTIVE healthy life! Happy Monday

    Happy Monday everyone!
    @calichick1978 I hope you feel better! Recovering from gall bladder surgery is no fun! The upside will be no more gall bladder pain!

    I feel your pain. Almost had surgery for that about 20 years ago, but tried a nstural remedy instead. Olive oil and lemon juice to pass the gall stones out, the Blackroot tablets as a herbal treatment for restoration.

    Didn't really believe in it, but there's a big difference between $100.00 and maybe $10,000.00 at that time.
