Well, there IS, but "no sex threads". :-)

2. Morning wood.
I love to wake up first thing in the morning and go chop some logs. It's great exercise, and it really helps me connect with nature.

4. I wish I could get into that kind of manly, strenuous exercise more.
But, well....no.

9. Yeah. Nothing beats whacking away at a big piece of wood in the AM.

It really makes one feel fulfilled.

13. I hope you remember to wear safety goggles.

You wouldn't want to get hit in the eye with anything as a result of so much wood whacking.

17. Also, here's a tip for working in the Winter.
Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 11:18 AM by XNASA
Chapstick. I can't stress this point enough. Apply a liberal amount of chapstick, especially if you're outdoors.

Funny word "chapstick".

24. Be careful in the summer, too. You could sweat too much and get dehydrated

10. Back when I used to.....you know.......
:smoke: .....I would sit out on the patio on a summer morning with a cup of coffee, and take a hit. Then I might have a cigarette. I really enjoyed that.

But all the fun has been sucked out of life since I started "minding my physical health".

I'm not sure this getting healthy business is really all that good for me.

14. Getting healthy isn't all that it's cracked up to be.
Coffee is truly one of life's pleasures. And the taking a hit part is pretty nice, also. :-)

I'm leaning towards the "just enjoy life while you can" mentality. If I paid attention to what I should eat or deink stuff that's coming out every day, and adhered to the warnings, life would be pretty damn dull.

16. As did I for many, many years....
And moderation is certainly the key.

But these days, with two teenage boys in the house, I find I must set a proper example. At least until they turn 18.

Then I plan on doing whatever I damn well please.

You never know, you might get loved up and turned into a toad.

23. Coffee and Eggs & Bacon or Sausage and Cheese-Grits and Buttered Toast...
... with strawberry jam (or orange marmelade). A slice of apple, and some grapes on the side.

-- Allen

Did I say "bacon or sausage"? I meant to say "bacon AND sausage".

27. Hey there!
I won't be able to make it to the Super Bowl party this year :( I am in a show and the last performance is from 2-4:30 that day which doesn't leave me any time to drive (or even fly) down there very fast.

26. Every morning I get a cup of coffee at PDQ and take my dog for a long
walk in the woods. Trudging through the snow with a hot cup of coffee in hand. Nothing beats it as a way to start the day! :donut: :bounce:
