    Oh Lord, I will remember that last one for a LONG time! But you left out one key element – after filling our gullets with all that stuff, we hit the batting cages, remember?

    It was only dumb luck that mine stayed down while yours didn’t…

    I don’t think it was the batting cages. The problem with vacations is that you think, “it’s okay, I’ll live it up,” not remembering that it’s been 11 years since you ate that much or were that active swinging a bat.

    Again, I say it: Thank the heavens for bowling, of all things. I have about twice as much stamina and energy as I did five years ago. Not any better looking, but with more oomph. 😉
