I need to lose 50lbs so that I can have hip surgery and to enjoy the rest of my life.
I enjoy the country life style,books(own10,000 plus)recently downsized. so my books and I now reside in a 10x50 ft mobile home in the high desert of California. I recently retired from the Probation Department after 26 years of working with troubled teens. I love Pine Trees,Books, animals,Books, movies,bingo,books, Indian Casinos,books and more books1I have so many books i had to start selling them on line to support my book habit. My dream is to see a real live moose!,I went to yellow stone in June and all the moose hid from me!
I had double Hip-Replacement surgery .The fright hip April 1st and the second June 3rd.I regained 20 plus pounds staying at my sister's house.I spent most of the time lying on my bed reading.
I had to use a walker and had a lot of trouble getting around.
By October,I was able to walk without a walker or cane.
I started hiking on the local Rez and BLM land.Dirt roads and hills. Last week I walked 3 miles in the Calif.heat.I wanted to vomit and my hips hurt but I did it anyway.Of course I complain the whole time,but I'm proud of myself when the torture is over.
My goal is 6 miles then we will see what to conquer.

    Thank you for your comments on my Spark page. We have a lot in common. Do you sell your books on eBay? May I ask the name you use on eBay?

    When was the last time you were in Dublin? I'm sure you know that it now has around 43,000 residents and has expanded tremendously to the east. We live off of Dougherty which I used to consider sort of the "end" of Dublin (well it still is in the sense that Dougherty leads to San Ramon but I mean in terms of Dublin Blvd).

    We moved to Dublin in l989 when the population was around 12,000. Two of our children went to Wells Middle School and Dublin High (graduated in 1966)--they are twins.

    I, too, would like to wear jeans that are not a size 20. In fact, I am on my way back up to a 22 if I don't get my act together.

    I look forward to more communication with you.
