Mrs. Racer 2.0 took me out for my birthday dinner today.

Sushi.

And plenty of it.

With sake.

Just the right amount of it, not too much, of course. Never want to have too much sake. Oh no. A sake hangover sucks worse than any hangover. Don't ask me how I know.

I also had a yellowtail (Japanese amberjack) collar. Very tasty!

looked something like this (internet photo):



Then we went for a drive by the airport and the Big Shed, then along the waterfront, I shot a few photos here and there, and we meandered our way back home to Paradise by the River.

A good day, to be sure.

Sounds like a properly good day, it does. I mean, no bacon and still no querulous carping - that says something about what kind of a day it was. Awesome.

Well, I was busy with... you know... stuff. It was Saturday, remember. Saturday Saturday for you non-civilians. Had to catch up with life so that I can relax on Sunday before being slapped in the face by yet another work week

What ever happened to my plan to become independently wealthy?

We get an extra day on this side of the pond this weekend, paid.

Something about labor.

Not sure if they are talking about work or childbirth.

Since May of 2016, my week goes like this:

Sunday - Saturday - Saturday - Saturday - Saturday - Saturday - Saturday. Then repeat. I much prefer it to life before May 2016. The only problem is that my 28 year old body could take a lot more advantage of my current weekly lifestyle than my 68 year old body can.

Same year Mrs Bob retired, and you're the same age.

The Cards took both games yesterday, 10-6 the first, and 3-2 the second with a walk off run in the 9th. They're still holding on to first place in the NL Central.

Here's a little something to whet your appetites:

I sometimes have a similar problem. My 21 year old body frequently forgets it is inside a 63 year old body.

But.

I have found the Fountain of Youth.

Really.

Partly it is the result of eating well (look up foods with anti inflammatory properties, and eat them everyday), and exercise which includes stretching (lots of stretching).

The other part is in my pea head.

The mind is a powerful thing. Keeping a youthful attitude goes a long way towards feeling young as we age.Sure, our bodies get worn and broken. But using the power trapped in out tiny brains we can overcome the pain and discomfort of aging.

Attitude is everything.

Never let go of your youth. Once you do you will grow old, and be forced to endure all that goes with being old.

Time to go out and play some today.

Careful Racer, or you might come across as old and wise!

Just about the only good thing about work (apart from pay day) is that we eat well - the lunches are good and varies every day. Variation is good.

I don't exercise as much as I should; I lift some weights a couple of times a week, and I usually walk to work (which is about 55 minutes now after we moved). If I don't walk a decently long walk every day my back starts acting up. And while I'm quite good at ignoring aches there's no way I can function when my back locks up. So, I walk.

May 17 Constitution day
May 30 Ascention day
June 10 Second day of Pentecost
Dec 25 Christmas day
Dec 26 Boxing day

...and most places also
Dec 24 Christmas eve
Dec 31 Newyear's eve

...and where I work we also have Dec 27-30 off.

Happy labour day!

I once read an analysis of the perfect race car.

The perfect race car is completely consumed at the race end, as the winning driver crosses the finish line, taking the checkers, the chassis, body, engine, tires, all that was the race car at the race start now little more than the support cocoon of seat and cage to protect the driver and take him (or her) to victory lane.

It is my goal that when I take my final checkers I have used up all that I was given, leaving a used up shell of what was once me for others to grieve over.

Not, I wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea.

Do you pack a lunch, or is there a cafeteria at your employer?

If a cafeteria, do you have to pay for the food, or is it part of the employment package?

Me too.

I found that after many months of convalescence for the feet I am weak. Spending a day at a car show, kneeling, or getting up and down from sitting on the pavement several hundred times during the day results in very sore muscles in my legs and buttocks, so sore that I can hardly walk for a few days.

And the long period of inactivity has resulted in an increase in low and mid back pain, some of which results in debilitating pain. But some stretching and exercise get things back to a tolerable level pretty quick.
