Maybe It Is Time To Get Serious?

I don't want to spend another summer just setting around waiting on the 'fat fairy' to rescue me. So I decided I am gonna put in my request. The boys always ask me what I would really like to have. Well here it is. I used to have one about 15 years ago. Used it too. Then due to a home fire I didn't have it anymore. I tried walking, I stumble and fall. I tried a Tony Little Gazelle, nice if you can stand on your legs a long time. Hmmm...

Maybe this summer will be my turn for a change. Now I am hunting around for those videos you can watch while you ride or walk.

Anyone else use a bike? How did it work for you?
I would sure like to hear your exercise and diet story.

Titles Of Sock Patterns

It was suggested to me, by the kids, that instead of the names I have been giving the patterns I should call them names like Altenator for the Truck, Engine Gasket for the Car, or Van Transmission. It doesn't exactly describe the lace used but maybe it is a more accurate description of the patterns. My grandson wants to know if I can title one New Fishing Pole. I think he has designs of his own!! I think I finally got me a fishing buddy.

Looks like summer is here. I am glad to see the peonies coming up and all the new leaves on the rose bushes. Lawn needs mowing already.

Monday night I was setting in the back yard in the rain watching son Harold finish getting the van running so he could go to work Tuesday morning. He told me he was gonna go try it out, be right back. It took me over half an hour setting there in the rain like a dummy to figure out he didn't mean 'right back' like I thought he did. I finally came in the house and called him. He was fixing the tail pipe over at his friend's house. Wonder how long I would have set out there in the back yard if it hadn't been raining? I was not the brightest light bulb in that pack for sure.

Anyone have any suggestions for new patterns you would like to see? Yarn? Color?
