Walking is the best possible exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far.
Thomas Jefferson (1743 - 1826)

The next time someone tells you that they want you to give 100% - do one better and give 103%! Here's how.....

We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100%. Here's to achieving 103%. Here's a little math that might prove helpful in the future!


1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26



8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98 % Only


11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96 % Only



1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100 %


B U L L - - - - (BS)

2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%

Good morning everyboomie. welcome

You know after 61 years your mind starts to evaporate to heck in a handbag. smirk

Every time you get less than 8 hours sleep a night you lose 2% of your brain's capacity. eek

Any time you get up at 3:30am you actually lose 3% of your brains. shocked

Did you know that every day that you do not spend at least 4 hours hunting arrowheads 5 cubic centimeters of your brain dies? crazy

That's really pretty bad.

That's like watching Dr Phill. rolleyes

That's like having to listen to my sister tell me about her day. hardwall

My brain's on it's last cerebral leg.

Visitation will be this coming Wednesday.

Bring beer.

I heard that beer is like a fountain of youth elixir on the brain. dance

Have a happy day all.

Good Morning Boomers

Joe, You're too funny to lose brain power.

Darlene, enjoy your time off.

Ana, clening house is like putting a puzzle together anyway.

Haroula, happy day wished.

Cailyn, horrible weather for campers this weekend. My daughter is attempting it.

Gerry, enjoy the day.

Venus, easy day at work is wished for you.

Looks like a not so good weekend for weather around here. Not sure what plans will develop.

Fantastic Friday ya'll puppy

Hubby and I popped up bright and early to get the monkeys walking. While we were in the kitchen leashing up the dogs, Cully came popping around the door and yelled "Surprise."

So, Soot told the Cully to go back to bed and we'd get him when we got back. <roll eyes> Yeah, right, as soon as we left he went down to get his dad up and tell him "Mama L4L told me to come down and get you up."

Big Soot is at work and son is at work. The boys are running around being boys. In one second I'm going to go feed them and then we are going to the park. It is a beautiful day out there.

Tonight we are going to a ball game, so today will be busy.

Ooops, a second is up. wave

Good morning everybody. wave

This morning I HAVE to mow the lawn, good Lord willing, and the creek don't rise.

oops I forgot. The creek has risen and it's raining now, so there go those plans. snicker

I went to Walmart for essentials, and I have put those up.

Now what to do? What to do? think

I'm going to the creek after the rain, make no mistake. I won't be doing anything but observing the depth of the water though. frown

The wait is definitely worth it though. I've been praying for a flood event like this to wash the creek out and get rid of leaves, limbs and grass. yes

For now I may have to do a little gaming. I've been playing BIA again. bravo

I hope you all have a super day. rah

No I'm not just getting up. lol Been up a long time. Me and Sassy took a nice long, over a mile, walk. Then home and got ready for a doc appointment. Finished that and off to Menards, Target, and Walgreens!! Home now to relax before heading out with the taxi and on to work the fish fry!!

Joe thanks for the chuckles. Sorry about the rain and the creek so high. Soon though you will be finding all kinds of lovely arrowheads.

Ana, Ana, Ana sounds like you are going to be busy, busy, busy! lol At least there seems to be some fun things too.

Darlene nice!! Enjoy the extra long weekend!! Never been a wine drinker but maybe I should try one of those and see if I like it. I know a red wine is good for the heart and appetite.

Haroula have a lovely day!

Cailyn sorry about the rain for the long week end campers. 50's??? We are just now today making it that warm. Was 28 out there this morning.

Gerry have a lovely day!

venus another day?? WooHoo!! May work fly and go well.

Gail sounds like a gaming day??? Good luck to daughter!!

Connie have a lovely day!

Connie have a fun day. Thanks for the danish!!

L4l glad you were able to get the run in while it wasn't too warm. have a lovely day! Have fun at the ball game!!

Prayers for the Band of Angels around all of you that will be traveling this holiday weekend. May it be a fun and safe time!!

Howdy-hoo. Been dealing with freezing temps, rain and high winds most of this week.
Looks like now I'm stuck in front of the computer..

May it be a safe and great holiday weekend for all.
