    TALK ABOUT A SITE FOR SORE….FEET 

    Friends, if you neglected to take advantage of TAKE A WALK IN THE PARK DAY on March 30 (not to mention WALK AROUND THINGS DAY on April 4), you can still take steps to walk the walk today, which happens to be NATIONAL WALK TO WORK DAY (if you’ve already gone to work via a conveyance other than your feet, you have my permission to walk home FROM work. Why let a technicality stand in the way of exercising your rights….and lefts.

    Obviously, those of us who are retired can’t walk to work, and those who work from home should have spent the night elsewhere in order to walk to work this morning, but it’s too late to do anything about that now (just don’t let it happen again).

    Now, perhaps you think that three days dedicated to walking within a span of six days is going a bit too far, but let’s face it — without something that reminds you to get off your butt, you would probably just sit there all day working or (if you’re retired) blogging, neither of which is good for your heart. So do as I do:

    OK, guess I’d better quit while I’m ahead, before we get the….

        You must be equipped with a pedometer, equipsblog. I’d get one too, but I don’t know if they count up to 999,999,999,999,999 & 1/2. 😦

      I live in one state, pass through another and work in a third state. I won’t be walking.

        I know an anteater who lived where Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah meet. He not only walked to work in four states every day, but to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks (which, come to think of it, were his work).

        I remember that song, Elizabeth (there are many songs with the words WALK or WALKING in the title, but I can’t use them all, and “These Boots….” was one that didn’t quite fit what I had in mind for this post. Thanks for the comment.

        It counts, but not as much as my walking to my computer in my basement pad. However, there are steps you can take to make it count more, such as putting your computer in the attic. 🙂

      I might walk down to the liquor store this evening and get some ale. I drink maybe three times a year, but spring has finally arrived. It would be nice to celebrate.

        Thanks, AOC. The first video is Johnny Cash’s I WALK THE LINE, of which there are many clips available, including this one:

        The second clip is Eric Clapton’s WALKIN’ BLUES, which may take a little longer to come up with an alternative. I shall return!

    DO YOU HAVE PANTY/WAIST PROBLEMS? 

    As you know, July 27 is one of the biggest holidays of the year: it’s TAKE YOUR PANTS FOR A WALK DAY. Now, those of us who take our pants (or panties) for a walk every day may wonder why there’s one special day set aside to celebrate such a normal, mundane activity. The answer, by way of analogy, is that most of us are mothers or fathers every day, but we still have single Mother’s and Father’s Days to honor what we do every day….unless, of course, we can afford to delegate the care of our offspring to a ritzy boarding school in France, or however parents who are wealthy get their darling little monster(s) out of their better-things-to-do lives for extended periods.

    Anyway, far be it from me not to take this walk day — and its health benefits — seriously. And yet, it seems to me that the idea of exercising your pants/panties is a red herringbone. Sure, your pants may be getting a tad tight around the middle, but is that your pants’ fault? Let’s face it — if your pants no longer fit, you’re getting fat, and a walk around the block isn’t going to do much for either you or your pants. You need to address the real problem — and luckily for you, I have the solution:

    THE WAGES OF THIN

    Overweight? Not to worry —
    You can lose it in a hurry!
    Here is all you knead to know:
    Inhibit your intake of dough.

    When, of dough, you indulges —
    Like your wallet, you get bulges.
    Don’t be all that you can be —
    Send half of all you make to me!

      Don’t laugh guys. No wait laugh. It’s a funny poem but if you’re up late at night or early in the morning there are a plethora of people out there telling you just that. You can lose weight without dieting or exercising. Just buy the pills or the powder that you sprinkle on your food. It’s all for 29.99. Or you if you want to look like some Olympic styled athlete, buy the DVDs for… you guessed it fans $29.99. I’d rather read Muse.

      No wait! That’s an idea read funny poems, read satirical articles by Don and Richard and laugh. Laugh so much you forget to eat and then of course, lose weight! And, all of this for just…. $29.99. Seems to be the magic number.

      Readers can send my $29.99 directly to Richard as a tax-deductible contribution to his Presidential election campaign….at least, I think it’s tax deductible. On second thought, better send it to me so I can check it out. Better yet, send cash and I won’t have to check it out. What Richard doesn’t know can’t hurt him.

      Many thanks for the info. This is entirely within my mission of having a blog to go to for the real poop, if you’ll pardon my English.
