great new weight loss plan. I call it "storm-fit". First cut up and drag debris across yard all day. (Compliments of Irma) then Take ice cold shower in the evening (because we have no power.) shivering Burns lots of calories. then lay in dark hot house all night sweating (because you have no power.) Repeat daily. I have lost 7 lb in less than 3 days. See their is good in everything if you look hard enough :-)Posted a photoPosted a photoWhat better way to spend a Friday night1-1-182.6 mile hike.

Happy timeTook tazzie for a walk at the park today. We made it a few steps and then she met a young male dog and they sniffed and then she strutted away like she was a young pup again. As soon as we got back in the truck she was sound asleep. I'm pretty sure she had a smile on her face. LOL. Priceless!!Nice brisk day. Brilliant Blue Skies and 60°A cold start to the morning here in Central Florida. had frost on the roof. It is supposed to warm up into the 70s this afternoon.
