A taste of......something else.

Is this decadence?

Laziness has led me to get out of shape and overweight over the last decade. Breaking my shoulder last February made things worse. Both Elena and I are determined to improve the situation. I have been walking for some time but I never seem to be able to do it daily. The truth is I hate going out more that I hate the exercise so we got a treadmill for the garage. I have my opera, a fan, privacy, and I don't have to be exposed to the evil orb. We have both done our punishment every day and have done more than we did before. I simply can't come up with an excuse why I can't spend a half hour in the garage each day. Is this extreme?

That is a powered antenna and a DVD player hooked up to a VCR connected to a TV and an amplifier powering two speakers. That's Die Walkure on the screen. I did an extra half mile because a good part was coming up. We will see if I'm a fool or just nuts.

It's brilliant! And I will admit that my exercise machine is set up so I can watch the lovely collection of operas you sent to me last year. I also watch dance technique videos, that's some inspiration, right there. No question, it all makes motivation easier, Sir, and the required time just flies.

I can be lazy and brilliant, can't I? Join me...we've got cookies.

Cookies! But that's an extra half hour on the machine!

Now that's a fan! Texas sized!
