My message to you is; Be courageous! Be as brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward.
--- Thomas Edison 1847-1931

Spring was here for a minute in Michigan and Harley came by to take me for an adventuresome ride ***** it wasnít as bad as I had anticipated. ***** But, as I predicted, winter is back and we all bundled up again ***** hopefully, all our spring flowers wonít freeze to death. Well, I guess Iíll just go off to Florida until Michigan makes up its mind.

--- I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated , jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.
