Here I am, sitting at the keyboard, having just set up a doctor’s appointment for a prostate exam. I’m at the age where a prostate exam is a life saver, and a digital rectal exam is a small price to pay.  We shall see what’s in store. The primary care physician will also set up the referral for an endoscopy, since it’s been 10 years since my last one of those. Somebody said people retire so they can go to their doctors and the funerals of their friends.

Moving along, I have been active in the pool all week. I enjoy the water for exercise more than walking or running, especially in the summer when the temperatures hit the 90’s. Usually the pool is the only option unless I want to exercise shortly after dawn.
