the gym. All those years that Jon was in the Air Force I took advantage
of the base gym. I always got to know the gym regulars and they knew me.
We would all look at the January newcomers and make wagers on who would

shouldn't be a surprise because we have no grocery store, no place to
buy gas and only one restaurant that opens only during the summer. We

My brother got me a week free membership at his gym while I
am in NC. Today I went to the gym. I got on the treadmill and could run
with ease because I am now at sea level from the 8000 ft. where I live.
I got off to lift weights. I loved being able to bench press. I loved

loved the estrogen fueled softer grunting as serious women did their
weight routines. I loved the smell of sweat!!! Yes there is nothing like
the sounds of a gym and the smell of sweat as people get in shape! Who
would of believed that I like the smell of sweat in the gym!
