After one week on my diet, I have lost one pound. Not as good as I had hoped, but better than gaining a pound, I guess. I also haven't been back to the gym. I'm waiting on that until after next weekend. I figure I'll need to be well-rested to get through my time on the weekend morning show. Yuk! But, I do have the next seven days off, so at least I have that to look forward to.
Last weekend was fun. On Saturday, I drove down to the Harrisburg area in the morning to meet my old racquetball friends. Only one of them knew I was coming, so the others were quite surprised when I showed up at the gym. We played for about 2 hours, then went to Madge's house for a picnic. It was good to catch up with everyone again.
After that, I met one of my friends from WHP for coffee. We talked a lot about the station and about the former ND/current chief photog. He has an inoperable brain tumor. Found out maybe a month ago, and is just starting therapy. It's unbelievable. He's only about four years older than I am. Doesn't smoke. It's just awful. He's having radiation, but I don't know if that will help. It may be too late. He's planning to go ahead with Rocktoberfest next month. I will try to make it down there.
In the news this week, Hurricane Katrina and the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist - and Bush still "in charge." Where is Bill Clinton when we need him!
