Hey @grasshopper we've got 81 according to my phone and right now it matches the thermometer outside. Dusk right now. 

It was warm and humid with everything being wet and the sunshine changing that to gas. Took my shirt off outside for the first time in probably 20 years, know I shocked the neighbors with my lack of a 40 yr old physique and a tan! Tomorrow the sit-ups and pushups start along with at least walking a mile or so. Can't stand it, thinking about that Alan Parsons song when he's talking about his ex or something "Your jeans are tight but your hide is slack"

 

June the First Resolution: Make me able to cut the yard in a max 1.5 hrs again It's 1/4 acre of lawn, when I was a teen I could do it in an hour and there wasn't a rock-lot or more natural areas.

I got over having any kind of physique a loooooong time ago. The most I have ever weighed was 140lb. On a 6'2" frame there isn't much phys and a lot of eek.

 

When I was on Kauai, I had people ask me how I stood in the surf to fish.

I barely float

Well....I'm only 5'9" and 155 solid as a rock for years. Then 20 years not working, yea painters are strong when doing commercial work for a while. Ladders, buckets, spray rigs, pressure washers. six stories up in new construction or just spraying all day long.

Found an old book says about ten minutes a day remember she used to do these back in the 70s. Calisthenics.

I was a hoddie for a summer. Funny as. When I would get home from work, I couldn't get my arms to relax from the bulldog position.  Mind you, I still only weighed 130lb.  I have always been fit and active.  Swam competitively when I was a kid.  You can't tell by looking.  I think about it... the games we used to play, you had to be in shape. Ditch 'em on bicycles, football, volleyball... Our "sled" was a car hood, from something big.... in the mid 60's everything was big... Get that puppy back up the hill....

Wow and I'm imagining Uncle Bills duece and a quarter a 1970 I think, that Buick was one of the biggest cars I've ever ridden in!

And the oven y'all were talking about earlier? An always Turtle waxed `72 Great White Buffalo (Impala) that we fried an egg on one day when I was a kid... it slid right off but no one would eat it!

I always thought a good marrying of things would be

 Go a gym... where people pay good $$ to work out

  I have lots of good hard exercise around here... Cutting, raking, fencing .... and I will gladly take $$ from people who want to work out.

 

...in the meanwhile, I do it and try to keep in shape

I spent part of my youth living in the desert. Can’t believe that it would be well over 100 degrees and we’d be out playing baseball for hours. Our bodies were young enough to endure that. never wore sunscreen either ... i’ve got an olive complexion thanks to being predominantly Azorean, so in the sun, i get very dark.

I've got that Scottish clan then English heritage so I've always got burned to a crisp until ten years in FL had a decent tan for the first time ever. And sunscreen always. Know what you're talking about with the Mediterranean kind of complexion with all the Greeks and Italians I've known.

Cool here today and I think I hit the yard w/a bit too much fertilizer.  Hit it w/the crabgrass preventer/fert the first part of May then followed up w/the weed n feed a couple weeks later.  Mowed Thursday and have to hit it again today.  Then a trip around w/the lawn sweeper for the clippings with no where to put it.  Trimming the bushes on both ends of the house next week so have to save the xtra garbage cans for that.  How the heck can bushes grow 2 feet since last summer?  Yea, quite a bit of rain but this is nuts!  May as well get it started before the temps start going up again.  Yea, it's true fat people sweat a lot.  Sucks to be me!  Time to git er done!  :)

First time  I visited Georgia  , The weather was 100 outside  and it felt like 110 , it was like living in a sauna , but ,  happily , the ice cream they make  was way better than the ice cream back East -

My wife's Jeep says it was 98 yesterday.  Humidity at 43%.  Felt like a steam bath.
