Yeah, PAWPAW-DON is my dad, but he would inspire me even if he weren't. If ever a Spark Member DESERVED to be nominated as a motivational Spark member, it is him. He doesn't post much except for when he sits beside me and I type in what he wants... Read more

In the late 70s I danced with the wild abandon of the youth I possessed. In the 80s I shook my booty a couple times a week at local clubs and discos as most 20 something year-olds did in those days. I wasn't a good dancer, but I made up for the ... Read more

Those were the words I almost said to Dr. White today. Wonderful man. Wonderful Rheumatologist. Lousy news, for the most part. When I got my resting heart rate of 60 I was very happy. It used to run about 90. Yay for exercise! I also had i... Read more

I've been at this "getting fit" journey for a while now. Many people have passed me up along the way, stopping to wave briefly before soaring on down their path. It's all good. I'm the slowest loser, but I'm also the little engine who could. I t... Read more
