Maybe he's onto something

The cure for everything is salt water - sweat, tears or the sea.”  
 Isak Dinesen.

The Sea
I haven't been able to be in the water for the last 3 months due to open wounds.

I've shed my share of these, but never found them to be a satisfactory cure.

I have been waiting to donate some of this for a long time, but until this week I have been told not to work out because an elevating my blood pressure could overwhelm the tissue making up my temporary thumb. 

Yesterday I made it up to the club and sat on a bike for a full hour.
I was not surprised at how good it felt to sweat, but was glad that I could pull it off without any pain in my hip.

Hopefully I will get to start doing this (and more) on a regular basis.

1st day back at the gym


  1. Now this I can relate too. I am now back in the gym for the first time in a year and I feel great about it. On things for sure, the older you get the less you gain and the longer it takes. Have fun with it and go slow!

    1. Happy to hear that you're recovering too.

  2. Woop woop!! Awesome John :) You look great! p.s. next time, Nancy, Flash!!! Light this guys face up so we can see it :) I know, only the photographer would criticize a perfectly good photograph.

    Love you guys.

  3. Do I see a beard growing? If so, I approve! If not, you should grow one! ;)

    1. I let it go until I can't stand my mom asking me "when are you going to shave?".
