No Sweat


I received this from a friend today and I know she would only give

me information that would help me

Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong
life; is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it...
don't waste them on exercise. Everything wears out eventually.
Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like
saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster.
Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?
A: You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat?
Hay and corn. And what are these? Vegetables.
So a steak is nothing more than an efficientmechanism of
delivering vegetables to your system. Need grain? Eat chicken.
Beef is also a good source of field grass (green leafy vegetable). And
a pork chopcan give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance
of vegetable products.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled
wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get
even more of the goodness that way.
Beer is also made out of grain. Bottoms up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one.
If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a
regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single one, sorry.
My philosophy is: No Pain...Good !

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING!!!... Foods are fried these days
in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it. How could
getting more vegetables be bad for you?

Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a
little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger.
You should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: Are you crazy? HELLO.. Cocoa beans! Another vegetable!!!
It's the best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.

Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is a shape!

Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have
had about food and diets.
And remember:
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the
intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well
preserved body,
but rather to skid insideways -
Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other -
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out
and screaming
"WOO HOO, What a Ride!"
For those that may have had to many
chardonnay or beers-
this is NOT actual medical advice

ZEBRAS are fun

Look what Grandma & Grandpa bought for me !!!
My very own rocking zebra !! And guess what-- when I get
bigger-- the bottom comes off and it has WHEELS !!!!!
(Just so you know -- my area rug is not old & ratty-
all 3 dogs are shedding . It is an ongoing battle to keep the
"puppy seeds" cleaned up- Obviously, I am losing the battle)

My house is empty

Serena, Jack & John left this morning
Tom drove them to the airport- I stayed home , because I don't
know if I could have let go of them.
It was so good to have them here, and I don't know
when I have laughed so much. Not just at Jack, because there were times
that Serena and I were in tears laughing at one thing or another..
It was a good visit .
Jack may be all boy, but he is still a baby and needs
lots of love and hugs and careful handling.
He is so sweet, and I love that tender baby skin.
HE is doing so many things , but is still learning
to control his spine snd neck. Fun to watch , also sooo scary
knowing how fragile he still is .
So that is it for now ..........
Oh, one more thing
Keep your fingers crossed that their house sells soon.
The sooner it sells , the sooner they will be back.

We went to IHOP this morning and I was FLIRTING with the lady
in the next booth.. She had a lot to say, but not as much
as I did..She said I was tooo cute and Mom & Grandma agreed.
Then Grandpa came home and said it was time
for me to start farming!
Do you think that Grandma told him
I was flirting ???

Click on the picture to make us look bigger


I talk to my Dad on the phone everyday , but it

is time for me to talk to him in person.

Grandma & Grandpa said they will be very sad when I go home to Florida.

Later on Thursday

We went to Grandpa Tom's work,
and there was so much to see and sooo many people to meet!Here I am with Grandpa. The ladies in the office thought I
looked like a "real firefighter"so they gave me a hat and a badge !!
I'm ready to work now !

This is me and Grandpa in an antique fire truck.

Grandma's camera is acting funny so all of her

pictures did not turn out.

Mom said I can go back there again next time

we are in Arkansas, and I will be wearing my firetruck

shoes AND my firetruck shirt. Then everybody will know

that I am there to take charge !!!

Lunch Date

Today Mom, Grandma and I went to Ms. Bernice's house for lunch


Mom made Ms. Bernice an honorary Great Grandma.

I think it made her very happy and she give great hugs !!!!

Fun stuff ! ! !

Grandpa puts his hands behind my feet and then I push..

Mom & Grandma were cheering and laughing.
I guess Grandpa did something funny, but I missed it because I was learning to crawl.


I wish Grandpa would quit talking and help me
get over to the dogs . They are fun and I like
the way their fur feels on my feet ..
Come on Grandpa-- follow me !

Jack in Arkansas

Yep, This is me Jack
and my Grandpa Tom.
Today we worked on crawling .
Mom & Grandma said I did GREAT !!!! Later in the day, Grandma put
pillows behind me and I sat on the bed all by myself and played with some new
toys. I have had to entertain Grandma & Grandpa's friends since I got here..
It is a tough job, but somebody has to be the cute one .
Grandma will post more pictures tomorrow or maybe later tonight-- so watch
for all of the updates that will be showing up in your mailboxes !!!
