“DOCTOR DOCTOR, GIVE ME THE NEWS…”

Hi Everyone,

Not sure, but you're probably boned.

Not sure, but you’re probably boned.

My trip to the podiatrist on Monday turned out to be all good news. No problems with my feet, just an issue with my new orthotics that will be corrected in a week or so. Cool.

Yesterday, I had parts two and three of my medical trifecta… annual physical and a visit to the eye doctor.

So, let’s pull a “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” and unnecessarily split these results over two days of posts. Everyone loves a cliffhanger, right? Read the rest of this entry

CHECKING UNDER MY HOOD…

Every 5,000 miles I change the oil in my SUV (okay, I pay Jiffy Lube to do it). At 7,500 miles I get my tires rotated.

Open up your hood and say "Ah."

Whenever the “check engine” light goes on, my car is in the shop ASAP to make sure she’s firing on all cylinders and doesn’t need any TLC.

Well, Timehop showed me some pictures of what I was up to this week back in 2011. It made me smile, a tad nostalgic and I wanted to share the story with you… serial style (over the next few days).

Don’t worry, it’s not an overly mushy experience. In fact it’s quite funny and you get to read about me getting smashed in the face repeatedly, plunged into freezing water and flung head over heels into a giant mud puddle. Interested?

You see, I was a contestant on the gameshow “Wipeout.”

Yes, that Wipeout.
