Sharing other 50+ interests
Over the years, it has been enjoyable to me to read about and write about other interests of 50+'rs in addition to bicycling. I know that at least one fellow 50+'r has been motivated to follow an interest based upon my sharing a similar interest.
So, 50+'rs, what are you doing in life in addition to your bicycling? I am always amazed at the very great variety of interests of this group. It proves the axiom that busy people are busy people - or whatever that saying is. We have a lot of new folks since we last had this opporunity. Tell us about your interests.
OK, here is what I am doing. (You never could have guessed that I might share, right )
My Xy Zingers gospel group is going great guns. We are being invited to sing around the state. Last week, we sang in Grand Junction, CO. Tomorrow we will sing in Colorado Springs. A few weeks back, we sang in Limon, on the eastern plains. We are singing at several churches in Parker. In Grand Junction, we passed the plate and got $432.16. So, our bank account now has enough for us to do a real CD, if we want. Yesterday, I got a call for a XMAS program in December. And, I have been doing more solo work.
This has been great fun, because I started the group a little over 3 years ago, just for fun. We are currently at 8 guys, ages 65-80 years old.

Also, I am still heavily involved in the national group I started, National Organization to End the Waitlist (for individuals with developmental disabilities). I started a petition in May, and we now have over 7,000 signatures. You can learn more at http://www.noewait.net
And, I continue my activities in Colorado supporting parents of individuals with disabilities, and advocating for better services. You can learn more at: http://www.ourwebs.info/indexpad.htm
I also continue my weight lifting (into a new program), swimming, walking, stretching. I am also working on becoming a certified personal trainer through AFAA.
So, what are the rest of you up to?
