1955 was a very good year!

So, I like to have fun...I was born June 22, 1955. I'm 55 today. A once in a lifetime event, huh? 55 born in '55. I decided to take the day off! Kinda like a personal day. Even though it's killer heat outside I went to the golf course and played 27 holes!! I couldn't make the 55, Bill! I carried the bag so that made for an excellent workout!! I will forgo the run today but I will get my 150 minutes in this week!
Tonight Sandy, Krystal (my precious, wonderful, daughter-in-law) and me will go out to eat. We are going to a place called "Lamberts; the home of the throwed rolls". A real tourist trap but you get to eat free on your BD. Yikes! I'm not only getting old I'm getting cheap!
The food is really good! They will throw these hot, fresh, greasy rolls at you and they are delicious!! Fried okra, macaroni and tomatoes, all sorts of goodies!!
One note; this morning at the local cafe' the waitress couldn't believe I was 55! Believe it or not but the years of running have kept me looking young! (maybe genetics, too) I pass for early forties easy when I have my hat on!!:) Another of the many benefits of running! Peace!
