A milestone, of sorts

I turned 50 today. And all in all, it was pretty good.

My health's excellent. I've been working out every day for the past week; it's just a start, but it's a good start. I haven't been able to maintain a streak like this in a long time. The secret, if I have one, is that I'm now thinking of exercise as a prescription from my doctor - which it is - rather than as something "good" that I "should" be doing.

Sebastian and I went together to the YMCA the last two nights to work out. This should help him too, and he'll help me to keep it up.

As I was barbecuing in our snow-covered back yard tonight - it was a warm day, the first springlike day so far this year, and I was in my workout clothes including a t-shirt - I looked up and saw the moon, and the Big Dipper, and the North Star above our house. Other stars, too.

Fifty years isn't long enough. I'm looking forward to more.

Happy Half-Century. I thought you were much younger than me. You're looking pretty good for a half-century.

I'm glad you have decided to start working out, it'll be good for you to get healthy. It's suprizing what exercize can do for ones moods. And getting out of the house occasionally wont hurt either. Please don't let Teri talk you out of going. Keep it up!

I still can't find my BBQ grill, it's on the back porch which still has about 18 inches of snow on it despite temps in the 50's yesterday. I'm hoping some of the rain today helps melt some of this crap before we get the 2 to 5 we are supposed to get overnight tonight.

Glad things are starting to look better for you.
Happy Birthday.
