back in the saddle

It’s time to dust off the old boots, tie on a kerchief and once again hit the trail. This week, after almost two months recovering from a knock on the noggin,  I’m returning to my Wednesday and Friday Weight Watchers meetings in America’s Heartland, aka the state of Kansas.

I mean to tell you, it’s been lonesome here at the homestead without all my WW pardners. No raucous chatter, no festive music, no counting WW points (and at Christmas time, that’s got to be close to a mortal sin!) and just flat-out no fun.

But all that’s going to change starting December 17. I hope you can make it to either our Wednesday or Friday meetings, because we’re going to make up for lost time.

Yee Haw!

Longtime Friends

Why I Am Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Hungry Poodle has been offline this last month because, well, I’ve had a headache. No kidding. I’ve had a headache since I clobbered my head (really hard) on the concrete floor of our garage. It literally hurts to think. But let’s get to the important stuff — carbs. Not complex, fiber-filled […]
