Training: Day off today – often do this after a vac because re-entry is always difficult for me and I feel so much Bertrand eh as stressed-out if I ease instead of catapult into my usual, frenetic, over scheduled routine. There is always so much to catch up on, all the time, but specially after […]

We are home again!  Got home a few hours ago.  The ride seemed long today for some reason but there was no Memorial Day Traffic.  Celebration of Mom’s 87th birthday was not totally relaxing, of course, because each time I see her, she is in a further state of decline.  She is at the point […]

Postscript to FaceTime post: I was regaled with the following tale: my four yittoo mice were shopping at Macy’s in the White Plains Galleria ( the lesser mall) yesterday. Cb, Woody and Max were shoe-shopping. They thought it was time since they had noticed a few days before that their only ( respective) pairs of […]

Julia and Madie (mbeezoo’s BFF from childhood) paid us a visit a few weeks ago. Julia is one of my BFFs, and my initial inspiration for triathloning. She has done quite a few, including I believe at least one full, “Olympic” triathlon. We plan to participate together, which will be my first attempt, near Ligonier […]

The bunnies, Elsa and Damian, are beloved creatures, and by that, I mean having bunnies as pets didn’t turn out exactly as I had imagined, but then again, what does? Bunnies, at least these two bunnies, are not easy bunnies. But we knew from the moment we adopted first, Elsa, and then, months later, Damian, […]

In short, it’s better, so even if you saw earlier unedited post, you may still benefit by checking out this version. It’s called “facing” […]

It happened. I finally did it! This morning, at about 6:35 a.m., I said to Molly G., my personal trainer, “Let’s start with the pullups today.”. I was ready, for the first time, to try an unassisted pullup at the gym. I had done a few unassisteds at home, but these start with my feet […]

Actually, there are no, and I mean zero, spelling errors in a single one of my previous blogs. The reader should be made aware of my gift for spelling — and a prodigious gift it is, one which makes me feel “blessed,” as in, “Have a Blessed Day,” an expression with which the reader may […]
