Summer vacation out in the sea
Cruising the Gulf on the Jubilee.

My daughter insists that we致e got to work out
So we値l be in shape while we池e floating about.

的t値l be worth it, you値l look FINE
You work yours and I値l work mine.

Do your breathing, feet off the floor
Work those abs - just 5 minutes more."

Push ups, sit ups, fun it ain稚
Let me go home, I知 gonna faint.

This will be fun, I値l be glad that I tried
I値l conquer that bike tho I値l think that I致e died.

I need more water, please let me rest
I知 feeling this pounding deep in my chest.

But, for the trip I値l continue to train
I値l try to endure my aches and my pains.

And the lesson I値l learn, and you know that it痴 true
This hype about exercise - it痴 all bad for you!

Barbara, enjoyed your poem. Very funny stuff. I know what you mean. We stretch and strain muscles we never knew we had. That is the price we pay for keeping all the ( oids ) of our body in shape.

Barbara, thanks for the laugh, but don't give no matter what you do. Be here tomorrow and then I can come back and laugh some more. Bill

Thanks for the chuckle, Barbara.
I just started a new exercise program. I now try to sit upright while I watch TV. It's tough, but I'm hanging in there!

In 4 weeks you will be in such good shape you won't believe it. Of course, during those four weeks you will think you are dying. [grin] Well done.
