    Don't give in. I hike, bicycle, ski, take daily walks, and stay as active as I can. I watch what I eat but reward myself with ice cream, donuts, etc. Do what you can within the physical limitations you have for your age. Never give in and live life to the fullest. It is never too late to get into shape.

    I figure it's time to start skipping breakfast. You see a lot more skinny old people than you do fat ones.

    If you outlive most of your friends, there will be fewer of them around to carry your heavy casket, so it would be helpful if you lost a lot of weight.

    Worst thing I'm discovering is there is no simple injury or health incident anymore. Last Sunday I tweaked my back a bit carrying a box down the stairs, thoracic area. I felt the pinch, then the muscle tightness, was careful for the next day not to exacerbate, all good. Or would have been 15 years ago. But compensating for the minor sprain in the middle of my back must've involved some unnatural motion for the lumbar, because now I'm sore there. I'm just talking minor temporary soreness here, nothing to take me out of the game. But it's just interesting, if discouraging, that the healing process seems to radiate through the body now, not just resolve itself locally.

    I knew you had my back. See you around 11 AM when my stomach is trying to eat itself.

    I know. Jane Curtin always introduced her and the first thing she always said was, "Thank you, Jane."

    When Garrett Morris did Chico Escuela (Baseball been a berry berry good, to me.), he would say, "Thank you, Hane."
