No joke, my son's PT told of how her husband was sitting in a living room chair on 10th St. and someone shot 6 inches of where his head was, through the chair into the wall. Just a "join the gang" drive by.

  • Andre Thompson, day teacher, Lawrencewhat's a "day teacher?" do you teach the calendarily impaired?eat high fat, high protein diet, minimize simple carbs...oh that is year round! [yes I know "round" is a shape, it also describes a trip through the calendar!]walk daily for most of an hour, do that every day too, except when heavy snow/rain. push-ups and sit-ups every other day. that's year 'round' too. today I was nearly sunburnt, does that count for summer? sunny-sue, glad you clarified, you had me worried.

Vicoden 10s...& Whiskey...lots of Vicoden...It gives you wings! And even the crappiest whiskey taste better than red bull...thats some nasty crap! However ..mixing in some Jaeger in your bull isn`t bad! And more Vicoden...Makes you feel like superman on steroids!

I try to walk when I play golf. Walk outside more. Even sometimes trying jogging (harder each year). I do like the summer heat over the winter. I go to they gym off and on year round.

The same thing I do to stay in shape in the winter: nothing.Well, that may not be entirely true; I do ski in the winter. So I guess I do less in the summer.

Lift bigger slabs of ribs up to the BBQ grill and pour larger beers. It really helps keep me ripped.....oh, and setting up the lounge chair.

lol.Buy extra beer to carry in, and then practice peeling labels off in one piece.Leaping up from my tanning chair to replace the beach towels hanging on the railing for privacy. Curls with the squirt bottle to cool myself.Other than that it's pretty much the same old tying cherry stems with my tongue.In my youth, I would string pull tabs for extra dexterity.I had about 40 ft of chain in my closet.
