Walking for exercise

Walking can add minutes to your life.
This enables you at 85 years old
to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing
home at $7000 per month. 

My grandpa started walking
five miles a day when he was 60.
Now he's 97 years old
and we don't know where he is.

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

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

I have to walk early in the morning,
before my brain figures out what I'm doing..

I joined a health club last year,
spent about 400 bucks.
Haven't lost a pound.
Apparently you have to go there.

Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise',
I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

The advantage of exercising every day
is so when you die, they'll say,
'Well, she looks good doesn't she.'

If you are going to try cross-country skiing,
start with a small country.

I know I got a lot of exercise
the last few years,......
just getting over the hill.

We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.


Every time I start thinking too much
about how I look,
I just find a Happy Hour
and by the time I leave,
I look just fine.

You could run this over to your friends
But just e-mail it to them


  1. This ties in great with my 2 mile a day walk. There's 6 inches of new snow on the road this morning. It's as good an excuse for not going I can think of. In fact I'll think about it while I'm shoveling out the damn driveway!

    1. Well shoveling snow is a lot harder work than your walk. I say you should be excused from todays walk without a doubt!

  2. My wife started a walking regimen a couple of weeks ago, she was proud of her progress until she invited a friend to go with her yesterday. My wife was huffing and puffing when she got back and her friend didn't even break a sweat. I printed this out for her and left it on her computer keyboard...hope she doesn't hit me :)
    Nice blog BTW

    1. @Grampy Well please keep me updated on your wife's thoughts. I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. It feels good to know that somebody has actually read what I have written. And of course the compliment always scores a couple extra brownie points! : )
      Hope to see you back here.
