Walking is Good For You, if You’re Able

Walking for Your Health
Watch this short video about a man who is almost 81 years old who is walking for his health. His name is Harry Lee McGinnis. He walking around the world. He started in 1992 and is now preparing for the final stage of an 80,000 mile around-the-world walk. It’s amazing!

Here I am at 70 years of age and have trouble walking to do my shopping in Wal-Mart. I admire those who are able to maintain such excellent health in their senior years. I’ve lost lost lots of my health… bad knees, bad back, bad heart, and maybe more… but I’m still kicking and I will keep on kicking as long as I can. How about you?

Joke of the Day

Wilson went to visit his favorite neighborhood bar, sat down at his usual place, and yelled to the bartender "How 'bout a cold one Charlie?".

The bartender brought Wilson his beer, and setting it down on the bar said, " Haven't seen you around Wilson, where you been?"

"Oh, been traveling with my friend George, he's a cripple ya' know", replied Wilson.

"Yea I remember" said the bartender. "Where did you guys go?" asked Charlie.

"Aw, we went around the world, saw the pyramids in Egypt, but we couldn't climb dem, George is a cripple ya' know".

"Yea I know, so where else did you go?" asked Charlie.

"Well" answered Wilson, "then we went to London, saw da' tower of London, but we couldn't go in, 'cause George is a cripple ya' know".

"But den, we went to Rome", continued Wilson, "and went to da' Vatican, and would ja' believe it Charlie, we got and audience with da' Pope". Wilson went on, "Charlie, just a soon as da' Pope saw George standin' dere on his crutches, he walked over to 'em, put his hand on George's forehead, and took his right crutch, and true it on da ground". "Den, da Pope reached over, took George's left crutch and true it on da ground, I looked at George and he had tears in his eyes".

The bartender said " Well tell me, did George walk?", Wilson replied,

"Naw, George fell flat on his rear, George is a cripple ya' know".
