Usually I just do half that.
It was a little warmer today.
Like twenty degrees instead of zero or below zero.
So I dressed a little lighter.
Even with that, the longer I walked the hotter I got.
I had to shed my gloves first and then my hat and then my coat towards the last.
When I got home my hair was wet and my clothes too.
My hair quite a bit.
My clothes just some because I shed down.
Otherwise I would have been sweating like a pig.
It felt great!
I have a bad ankle and knee from a rollover car accident about twenty years ago.
Mayo Clinic welded my ankle.
Finally, the lighter I get the better I can get around.
I'm doing lots better and can't imagine what another hundred pounds taken off is going to feel like.
I had my twelve jumbo eggs fried in my hamburger grease this morning.
It was good.
Tomorrow I have two giant boneless ribeyes thawing with tons of fat on them.
Hog heaven here I come.
I'm looking good and feeling good.
My mind is clear and I am sleeping well.
I'm looking forward to spring.
Just around the corner.
There is three feet of ice on the lakes and six feet of frost on the ground.
Seven weeks from now there will be no frost and the ice will be off the lakes.
It happens pretty fast when it turns the corner.
Anytime you make the winter you can throw your hat in the air and holler yah hoo.
Winter can be hell if you don't have the necessities.
Not always easy to do.
Heat and food and cars that work.
Things to do and being able to get around.
The basics but without them you can be in trouble or worse.
This will be the first spring I haven't worked.
My truck is down and I'm going to leave it that way.
I'll be seventy years old in April.
I'm going into full retirement.
My life will be devoted to filming and this website and fishing and simply enjoying life.
Whatever I got left.
Could be years and it could be decades.
I'm hoping for the latter.
Whatever it is, it is.
I'll do everything I can to maintain and improve my health.
From there, whatever happens happens.
There are no guarantees in this modern world.
People in their fifties get struck down.
People who get old and still have their health are very fortunate.
I hope I am one of those.
I got lots to do.
This message and my grandchildren.
I would like to contribute heavily to both.
In the form of health and longevity and a spirit filled existence.
Enjoying life to it's fullest.
Drugs are pure shit.
Every one of them.
Nothing but pure shit.
Destroying lives by the millions.
More aptly, billions.
Billions of lost souls.
Ask me why I fight..
I'm going to do that same walk again in a little while.
Twice in one day.
