Looking forward to our Tucson visit!

Starting to look forward to our visit to Tucson and Emmy’s family!  Will be the first time in several years I been back there and I look forward to getting to know all of them again.  I also enjoy seeing Tucson.  I think it is very pretty landscape.  Emmy of course feels it is pretty to visit, but she would not want to live there. Which is ok, but I enjoy the barren landscape and beautiful sunsets framed by the mountains surrounding it.  I will have to try and get a picture to post while we are out there.

We are also planning a trip down to Mexico while we are there.  We have went down to Mexico everytime we been there and always have a good time.

We are actually going here in Mexico:

We will also try to go horse back riding in the desert and check out some of the sights.  Emmy has seen them all, and I have seen a lot of them several times, but Bleys is going for the first time.  Should be a lot of fun!

Weight loss and getting in shape.

So for the last 8 months I have been working out 3 times a week for about 2 hours per session. I have gotten in much better shape, but only lost about 10 lbs really. Well, in the last week, I have changed my diet up. I gave up most carbs and went to eating a lot more veggies and meat and I have lost 10lbs in a week. Pretty impressive considering I have not lost much in the last 8 months. I am thrilled to see it and hope I can keep up with the progress!

Farrah Fawcett dies

I am in total disbelief. One of the first women that ever made me stop and go “Woah!” as a child for her stunning good looks has died. Farrah Fawcett. It is a sad day. I grew up watching her in Charlie’s Angel’s and always watched for her in any movies that she was in just because of that initial impression she made on me as a child. I was disappointed when her and Lee Majors got divorced. I mean, come on, an Angel and the Six Million Dollar Man belong together! Today, I am even more disappointed. More for the loss of a childhood memory then who she might have been today, as I did not know her. Regardless of who she was, it is a sad day when we lose one of the Angels.

To have Michael Jackson die the same day was that much more of a shock!  The King of Pop and the Queen of the 70’s Pinup going in the same day.. Kinda a rough 1-2 combo to my generation..
