It is that time of year, annual doc checkups and such. My first was GP to check health and just my luck, doc has been on a health kick. So my BP is high under ' new standards'. My weight now makes me obese and I can fix both by getting rid of ten pounds. Otherwise I was OK, so some good news I suppose. I have been staying at 235 pounds in order to fly helicopters and that was not so hard to do, but it was work to make 229 last summer. I dread what it will require to get back to 225 and be able to maintain it long term. I do not like to eat like a rabbit like wifey.

I do not have a smart phone and still have my water proof sport phone I got about ten years ago. These pics were taken with it and are very low quality, but I was taking a long walk and wanted to be light.
Other than movies and walks and picnics and book reading, just normal life around here. We had considered going to the airshow and were up early and dressed and had keys in hand, when wifey asked me if I really wanted to deal with traffic to see planes. I thought a moment and put keys back on hook. I enjoyed the Blue Angels flying over our house and an estimated 122,000 cars of people enjoyed the show at the base. Very glad I stayed home. I did not even know there were that many cars in Alaska. If I did not go to a lot of airshows, I would have gone also.
It is 55 degrees and overcast on this fine Tuesday.
We watched a great, yet strange ( stop motion ) movie on library DVD, called Anomalisa. It is very well made and worth watching.
