Last weekend was so hectic as I ended the holiday season with my daughter's wedding. This weekend, it was nice to relax.
And walked the beach, which I love to do, hearing the waves crashing and lapping at my ankles.
One of the benefits of living in Florida is that it's beach weather even in January. Wasn't hot. Kind of sweatshirt weather. But nice. And the crazy thing is that the beaches weren't crowded at all and no problem finding parking close to the beach.
It's like the natives want it steaming hot to come to the beach. To me a cool breeze is nice.
And had an interesting story yesterday. Some of the tennis players often get together on Saturday and we were having typical guy talk, mostly about sports. And somebody pointed to one of the guys I didn't know and said he probably wasn't interested in the conversation. I asked him what he was into. And he said stocks. Turns out he has a formula and said he averaged $28,000 a month last year. And he's 83 and says it's kind of a hobby to give him something to do. He lives a simple life. A 2300 square foot house which is the size of mine and a 16-year-old car.
He hasn't been to Europe in over a decade. I was telling him why aren't you at a bistro in Paris instead of at Panera's. LOL. And he and his wife, married 59 years, have no kids. I told him he could put the Florida Dom Foundation (well I used my real name) in his will. LOL.
Anyway, found it interesting to see a guy with a lot of money living an average middle class lifestyle.
And I had lost 2 1-2 pounds in the last week when I stepped on the scale this morning. I thought if I wrote about it, it would give me more incentive not to slack off. It will be hard to keep up that pace but it is a start.
We'll see if I can keep it up.
