  1. Wousy Weekend

    by , 05-20-2007 at 06:38 PM (Greybeard's Brain Blog)
    It sounds like I have Elmer Fudd making this entry. But I like the alliteration.

    Anyhoo, I am up to 1,500 yards in the pool, which is cool. I do feel much better, but I have a ton of weight that I gained after the last surgery to lose. Medications and changes to metabolism have done that. But I digress.

    Yesterday we got home to the bathroom in our bedroom upstairs flooded. How did we know? It could have been the water streaming down the window in the dining room ...

  2. Not at all terrible

    by , 05-20-2007 at 04:10 PM
    The Sabre Khan is not over yet--the top four, the band, and the refreshments are later this evening--but I have finished. It was well attended and run efficiently. Matt and Zack Brown didn't come, and neither did Sandy Grillo and one or two other people, but it was well attended--7 pools of 6 and 7 double flighted in the first round. No A's, but an interesting mix ability levels.

    I went 4-1 in the pool with +17 indicators, losing only to Nick Loh because he was my last bout and ...

  3. Frustration at the Circle City Open

    How badly did I fence? So badly that I did one thing I never do and another thing I rarely do.

    I said DAMN IT! and then hoped no one heard me. This was during the DE that I should have won and gave away by doing stupid things after being reasonably ahead at the half.

    I also questioned a referee's call. That's rare for me and I knew even when I questioned it that I was in the wrong. My emotions ...

  4. Body Comp

    by , 05-19-2007 at 11:08 AM
    Before my knee injury, my body comp (taken at the local Wellness Center) was usually below 12% body fat. Last September, after knee surgery, it was up to 19.8. Because I knew it would freak me out to see it fly upward during the recovery period, I didn't have it taken again until yesterday, when it was 19.7%

    Well... at least it's no worse than it was last September.

    I note that when I had this done in September, the report said I was about 5 lbs. overweight (at 120 ...

  5. Friday at Last

    by , 05-18-2007 at 06:53 PM (Greybeard's Brain Blog)
    Wow, what a week. On one hand it has passed so quickly because I have been so busy. On the other hand,I am one week closer to my date with the surgeon.

    My wife and I have decided that this one really is the wake up call I needed to stop being such a type A. (hmm a Type A attorney?) Unfortunately in reviewing the period from my stroke and previous surgery I seem to have become a type A+. I can see that I was trying hard to prove I was OK and that the stroke etc had not affected me. ...
