    Excersize Plan!

    Thought I would share this email I received from friend.........

    Exercise for Older Adults:

    Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty
    of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato sack in each hand, extend
    your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as
    you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day, you'll
    find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

    After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks.
    Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to
    where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms
    straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level)

    After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of
    the sacks.

    I've read this before, so I started laughing even before I got to the punch line.

    Thanks for the chuckle!

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    Before I got to the punch line, wondering what you were going to do with all those spuds?
