Some of you may remember that I'm dieting and exercising some. The belly
has shrunk two full inches although I've only lost 18 lbs so far. I'm
back into my size 42 slacks, shooting for the 40's next month and the
38's the month after that.

The beauty of all this is that I have more energy to spend in the garden
and don't fall asleep every other hour. Of course by 10 pm the pup and I
are both yawning so it's off to bed for us.

Actually got up before dawn this morning and went off to the local race
track to do a safety meeting for one of my clients who is building some
facilities there. It was cool, crisp and beautiful at daylight. The
trainers were exercising the thorough breds and the sight of beautiful
animals doing sprints was a nice sight too. I hung around after the
meeting and shmoozed with some of the trainers I knew. Went on from
there to visit 4 other clients, my computer guru (gonna get a Read/Write
CD) and then to the medical clinic to check the records on an injured
employee of a client.

Miz Anne and I went out for a salad and a baked chicken breast half and
enjoyed our time together. Home again to be greeted by Sleepy Dawg, who
is now napping. I'm out to hook up the soaker hoses as it still turrible
dry here.

Life is good.
