Re: Dave Draper Passing Away

Dave was my fave bodybuilder in the old Weider magazine 1960's, I was excited when 'Don't Make Waves" movie came out, starring Dave Draper, Tony Curtis and Sharon Tate. Dave also appeared on TV series "The Beverly Hillbilly's" and "The Monkees".

Re: Staying Healthy

I took care of my health and nutrition a long long time ago, now friends telling me that if they thought they'd live this long they would have made much better choices. I remember when I was around 21 trying to get my mother who was 47 to do some Yoga exercise, she'd say "it's to late for that" but ...

Re: beer

I quit drinking a long long time ago, and smoking non-filter cigarettes. I think when the kids were young and we had a mortgage, it phased out.

I eat what I like but then it's moderation.

My wife did aqua-fit with a group of ladies in our building, we have an indoor pool.

Re: Positive thoughts

Just me on this side so started to cross when the walk light came on and all of them came straight cross all spread-out. As the older fellow was walkin...

Re: Positive thoughts

Always be polite in situations, keeps you from creating negative scenarios in your mind. If you encounter a nitwit, you don't have to respond. Sometimes walking down a street and see a couple walking towards me and my wife, often they keep walking not moving aside so us two seniors have to step of t...

Walking down a street in my neighbourhood the other day was an old fellow sitting on the front step to a small 3 floor apartment building. He was saying something and at first thought he was just saying hi but then realized he was sitting on the step but couldn't get up to open the front door. It wa...
