WELCOME to WEDNESDAY APRIL 27, 2022
I found this exercise on line, suggested for ‘seniors’, to build muscle strength in the
arms and shoulders. It seems so easy, so I thought I’d pass it on to some of my
friends and family. The article suggested doing it three days a week.
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface where you have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5lb potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and
hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, then relax.
Each day, you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple
of weeks, move up to 10lb potato sacks. Then 50lb potato sacks and then eventually try
to get to where you can lift a 100lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms
straight for more than a full minute. (As I write this I have to admit that I’m at this level)
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY! people,
stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
While I was watching the back-to-back football games the other night, my wife and I
got into a silly conversation about life and death, and the need for living wills.
During the course of the conversation, I told her that I never wanted to exist in
a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and taking fluids from a bottle.
She got up, unplugged the TV and threw out all my beer. 😳

Wednesday’s Quizzler is…….
A wizard left each of his three sons a gift before he died. The eldest received a mirror, through which he could see anyone in the world. The second, a horse which could ride to any place in the world in one day. The third, a magic apple which would never rot, and when eaten would cure any disease.
One day the brothers heard about a princess in a faraway land who was dying of an unknown disease. Rumour had it the king would let the man who saved his daughter marry her. The brothers sprung into action. The first looked in his mirror and saw the ill princess and the land she lived in. All three jumped on the second brother’s horse, and they rode so fast they got to the princess’ land the next morning. Then the third son took his apple to the princess, who ate it and recovered full health instantly.
The king was grateful, and indeed intended to let one of them marry the princess. But it had taken the co-operation of all three brothers to save her. Which one did the king decide should marry his daughter?
