I heard that chronic marijuana smoking damaged a brain function, but I can’t remember which one.

No wonder I can’t remember anything.

The only reason I would take up exercising is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

Exercising can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional five months in a nursing home at 7000 bucks per month.

My Grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. Now she is 97 years old and we don’t know where the heck she is.

If I do start exercising, I will have to do it in the morning before my brain figures out what I am doing.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

The advantage of exercise every day is that you die healthier.

LOL - No you didn't tell me that.

I was born in near Baltimore and raised in Indiana. I have been a Colt fan all my life. Even when we had Jeffy ‘boy’ George, I still routed for them.

I think we might have a decent chance this year to do it again. We are playing well. Tennessee rested their started last week. They have a bye this coming week too. So, they may get a little lethargic and/or rusty if we get to them. It isn't the best team that wins all the time. It is the team that is playing best that wins.

I was trying to think of my husband’s SS# yesterday and couldn’t remember it. I got the last six digits correct but couldn’t remember the first three. Then I tried to think of my own and couldn’t remember it at all. I’m only 41! My mom is soon to be 71 and has a terrific memory still. I definitely didn’t take after her.
