I have been on a ferocious fitness regime.
Bebo has inducted me into an exclusive workout club. All members are older, funny, live around here and are obsessive about muscle definition.
Three times a week we meet up early in the morning for yomping around Stow Lake in The Golden Gate Park.
Those of us who survive the warm up, set off at a gentle pace and look at the ducks. The weather has been perfect with clear skies and ideal walking temperatures. First time I have been walking for a year or so when sweat stains have not besmirched my T-shirt as soon as I set off. Very pleasant.
The guys are all retired, all gracious, have had full lives and have many excellent stories. The best company.
Some might say that it is a pity that immediately after the walk, we go to a diner for a huge breakfast.
This tends to undo the benefits of the previous hour but the pleasure is intense.
Anyway, thanks guys for letting me join!
The great event of the week is the arrival of my 2022 parking ticket. This allows me to park the truck in front of the house. Difficult to explain how much looking for a parking spot misery and pain this little rectangle of yellow plastic cures.
