Sitting Still

Because of my knee, you can say I've been wasting time sitting still for the past month and a half. I haven't done a whole lot other than sit on my bum and watch TV. Hence, there hasn't been much in the way of new posts. I hope to change that. I went for a short hike around Harriman Lake today. Actually, I went around the lake twice for a total of 2.8 miles. It is the longest I've walked since the surgery. I have a little bit of an inflammation issue that has kept me from pushing myself as much as I would like; I just have to pace myself until it gets better. Other than that, the knee is fine.

Anyway, I am looking forward hiking again as well as the big soccer event on February the 11th

It has been a while since I have done a post. That's mainly because I haven't had anything to showcase. While my knee is getting better, I'm not ready to go off hiking. It is shame too. The weather has been nice. We have had a few 6o degree-days recently. Hopefully, I will be back in action soon.

Since I don't have any new pictures to share, I will share a You Tube clip of David Letterman's Farewell Tribute to "Great Moments in Presidential Speeches".

While I have no intention of making this a political blog, I'll just say that I hope the new Administration makes comedy writers do a little more work.

New Year's Day

All is quiet today. No kids, airplanes, lions, elephants, motorbikes, etc. Just beer, pizza, and football. (Go Dawgs!) I got back home yesterday after spending a week visiting family in North Carolina. It was a week of eating, hanging out with family, and playing with Carter & Cara. In other words, it was a good Christmas. I hope everyone else had a good one. Thanks to those who sent me Christmas cards. I got quite a few that had their kids on them. I don't have kids so here are a couple of pictures of my nephew and niece on Christmas to substitute for that.



Happy New Year,
