    Since I was last here I've turned 55 and a lot has happened in life. One being this stupid pandemic. However, I have found that I'm ok staying in and not being out in the crowds and I'm actually calmer this way. I'm pretty introverted with age so I actually did ok during the lockdowns. LOL!

    Had to buy another used car today. The van I have is pretty much on it's last legs. I got a Ford Escort. It will do till next time.

    I broke a rib about 4 months ago coughing due to COPD and asthma. It still hurts a little off and on. I was out for 6 wks from work.

    I've been keeping entertained with video games so that helps. Have a great night.

    Going from a large van to a Ford Escort is a big change, but the Escorts are great little cars, and I think that it should be a good reliable little vehicle for you, as well as cheaper on fuel now that prices are going back up again.
    It seems like many of us here are introverts, and didn’t miss social activities a lot, either. I know that Bobby and I didn’t notice much change. The main thing for us was when they closed the fitness center and we could not go there, which is something that we do most days as long as the weather and our schedule permits that.
    Our little dogs qualify for our social life, I guess.

    I have exercise DVDs that are referred to as in-home walking workouts. My fave is Jessica Smith's videos cuz they modify for us older folks.

    I have a bunch of Leslie Sansone's videos. I'm not doing much exercising these days, though. :p

    Hey, Marci, you're not necessarily part of the "older folks", since I'm 72 and my wife is 73. You're actually one of the only younger members on here. In 18 years from now, tell us how you are doing. Only kidding.

    Haha. She is annoying. I just mute it because after you've heard the exact same crap 2,000 times it just gets old.

    I really like Jessica Smith cuz her mom who's in her 60s works out with them. She does all the modifiers.

    Got the early shift at work so if I'm not on for a couple days don't panic. I'm getting tired and I got a lot going on here so not chatting much. See you guys soon!

    Morning all. Sorry for not being on much. Working a lot and pretty tired. :confused:
    It's been so hot here that it's draining the life out of me.

    Hope you have a great day!

    Good morning to you, Marci. That 95 andd 96 degree temperature down here in Oklahoma
    is also stifling. Hope you can pace yourself today and not work too hard. But as we say down
    south, TGIF. You have a good one, too.
