Chris Mundy and Kate House try to make art while navigating the crap life throws at them.

Thanks Marty

Marty sez:

"I'm not sure which is more beneficial, blogging or exercise. One helps the body, the other the mind. They both go about the same time anyway, don't they?"

Good one. I guess it's true.

There is a certain type of woman out there, I see them, 50 years old, rail thin, eating lettuce and water sandwiches, running like their lives depended on it wearing tiny little running pants that cling to their scarecrow butts. I kinda doubt they will live any longer than I will.

I've been on so many diets in my life, I just can't be bothered any more. At the same time, I want to be able to move around, so here is my latest eating strategy. I've quit eating cheese and I've quit drinking alcohol. (That is, until Memorial Day Weekend. If you think I'm giving up white wine on the deck this summer, you are crazy.) I am losing a little. I'm pleased. And, it was 21 degrees this morning, so I didn't walk again.

That's it.

Hi, Chris, just caught up with this blog. I gave up shopping at my favorite (most convenient) grocery store in deference to Walmart prices. That way I can still afford my glass of wine 'bout sundown each day. Probably should give it up, but not today.

As I sit here in my "exercise clothes" catching up on my blogging before going downstairs to exercise with Gilad, I read your post and laughed so hard, "I don't want to be rail thin I just want to be able to move around!) lol lol lol - my sentiments EXACTLY! Sounds like you have the right idea!

Yes indeed. You don't want to end up as a fat load, no sir. I want to live long enough to make a lot of art. But I don't expect or need the same butt I had at 15. You go, grown-up girls!
