Dob Frog,

A GREAT workout that will make the healing more enjoyable is a two and a half step program that can be done in one evening.

Step 1/2 is better off done near sundown and is normally only done once. Then you can then do several "sets" of Steps 1 and 2.

Step 1/2 Finder adjustment curls
Step 1 Gross body movements to make Altitude and Azimuth adjustments
Step 2 Focuser curls

Step 2 can involve varying weights of eyepieces for a really good "burn".

Steps 1 and 2 are obviously more fun after dark.

I got the green light for a summer Ohio stargazing trip.

Get well soon!

Ed

Marge and I have discussed your discomfort Di, and feel strongly that in order for you to meet your goals you must first go to DQ for a large Dark Chocolate Blizzard and immediately afterwords an eight hour shopping trip with all of Scott's credit cards! We do want pictures if you don't mind.

Sincerely:
Mr. and Mrs. Spoonie

Hey Di, I went climbing in the Red River Gorge once. It's been a long time ago. Hmmmm, I would guess about 75lbs ago.
Glad you are doing so well......and congrats to Nikki.

Ed, Great workout! :)

Mr. and Mrs. Spoonie, I've not had the dark chocolate blizzard. It's a must! No credit card action for me, however....maybe just this once for therapeutic purposes. :ubetcha:

Gary, Jason has been to RRG a lot and it's one of his favorite spots. I've seen the photos from his adventures. Beautiful place! thank you for the congrats to Nikki. She loves golf and is missing not playing now. Spring won't come soon enough for her.

Nine days with no posts! A record, perhaps? We need posts, or I'll have to drone on about how cute Casey and Nelson are acting, the excitement of straightening up the workshop, and a rivet-by-rivet narrative of maintenance on StaRV II...:grin:

The World ended for a palmetto bug in my foyer today. I wonder if she was who the Mayans had in mind...
