Mike on Friday, October 13, 2006 in Phenix City, Alabama. Divine Day!

This is a new routine that I create with an unused bridge off the main trail. You can see the leaves which indicates not much travel. Here I am stretching my body about 50 inches across these two handrails. My arms caught the most pain. After a few times I was able to go across the bridge twice at a time.  I attempted to do with one arm but immediately realized "not" yet.

Really nice workout here walking with legs split across this wood bridge. Causing immediate pain to some dormant  muscles. I created this routine on October 28, 2006

Mike has only one time duck walked this estimated 270 feet bridge without getting up from the squatted position.
This is the most painful exercise to get started Mike has ever done.
The first time across the bridge requires Mike to get up about six times.
The second time from three to four times.
The third trip requires only  2 to 1 time.

The fourth time Mike duck walks this bridge backwards.

Encountering two types of dogs
For those who design and construct public trails for fitness, please consider a trail for friendly dogs and a separate trail for unfriendly dogs.

I base this suggestion on my attempt to stay "firm not fat" at age 53, while trail biking, walking, jogging, running, rollerblading, and wheelchairing on public trails.

Two different kinds
of public trails needed

For those who design and construct public trails for fitness please consider:
1. A trail for friendly dogs.
2. A trail for unfriendly dogs.

Topic: Rush's Morning Updates

Rush's Morning Update, Wednesday 7/8/1998

KFI AM640 Los Angeles
7/8/98 Rush Limbaugh
Hey, here's something for you diehard baseball fans to chew on: a new twist on little league play out of Kentucky. Two teams -- one for 11-year-olds, the other for 12-year-olds -- both have the same unusual name: Smoking Kills. That's right, the anti-smoking hysteria has now reached a point where little league teams are wearing uniforms with the team name Smoking Kills. If it were me, I would be more than a little embarrassed to see my kid being used like this as an ideological pawn, but Mike Sawyer who organized the teams and registered them in the Amateur Athletic Union tourneys defends the name as a creative way to fight youth smoking.

I can imagine the emotional response this will generate among those of you who agree -- who feel -- that this is a good way to drive the point home. But what's the old saying? If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Why should a bunch of holier-than-thou Liberals get away with this stuff uncontested? I think the Smoking Kills team should face teams with creative, ideological names, too. It would be great competition. Some team ought to name themselves Tax Increases Suck in honor of the big tobacco bill that failed. Or here's one that would really fly: Freedom Rules. Wouldn't you like to see your kid wearing that uniform in a game he was playing? Smoking Kills vs. Freedom Rules. Smoking Kills vs. Tax Increases Suck. Ha! There's no question in my mind as to whose butts would get kicked.
