No doubt there are exceptions, booots, but getting up and taking a walk isn't only to try and prevent getting fat- it's a great form of exercise.<quoted text>
I am an exception to that ass thing, as though I spend almost all of my day sitting on a chair, my wife, mother and other family members think I am ill, because I am very thin and have lost weight in the past year.
My wife and I did go for a 20 minute, or so, walk before lunch today, but cut it at that as it is not pleasant outdoors today. I think our long hot summer has ended.
Suffice to say that how kids prefer to amuse themselves today has changed drastically from when I was a kid which was well before computers, the internet and video games.
Sorry to hear that your long, hot summer has ended- unless you're glad it has- I know I am glad that Florida's long, hot summer has ended and in the 17 years I've lived here, this is the first REAL Florida fall I can remember. While this much cooler weather we're enjoying is lovely, I also suspect we're going to have a much colder winter than is usual for us. Frankly, I don't even mind that- or wouldn't- were it not for having to cover all the in-ground plants when the temps dip below 40 degrees or so!
