I’ve lived in Florida for almost 4 years. I still find it hard to believe that I moved here, for at heart I am an indoors person. Yet I am now living in an outdoors place, with an (almost) year round outdoor climate.

My fine dog Penne takes me out of doors at least five times a day. She loves to walk so I follow her lead, and walk with her, even if the temperature is 94F.'

As we walk I sweat a lot, but these daily walks totalling 5-6 miles, have helped me to lose more that 40 lbs in weight since January 2010.

I walk in a pleasant area. It is not one of those awful “gated communities”, but it is an area with little traffic, two ponds, and many good shade trees.

As I  adjusted to this more “out-of-doors” life, I did two things

1. I bought a gas grill on which to cook the manifest vegetables which nurture my body.
2. I “skinny-dipped” in the very private swimming pool at the home of my friend Ben.

You are welcome to eat from my grill.

You may not watch when  I “skinny-dip”

Jackie W from Fitchburg sent me this via Facebook.

A glow worm's never glum.
'Cos how can you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!”

Makes sense to me!


  1. There was a good man named John
    Who's birthday fell upon
    The 26th of May
    His friends heard him say
    I will enjoy this all day long!!

    Happy Birthday to you
    Squashed tomatoes & stew
    Stick your head up the chimney
    Happy Birthday to you.

    Bro M
