Me and Alzheimer's
Saying for the day: People who are over weight at mid life have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's than those who aren’t.
If I suddenly stop blogging its because I won’t be able to remember where the computer is.
I was very definitely over weight at mid life and early life too.
Now a group of scientists have proven that this makes it much more likely that I will develop Alzheimer’s . What a horrible thing to tell me.
I can’t go back and get un-fat in midlife. I can’t back diet. I am doomed.
I should have listened to Betty and gone on a diet when it counted.
I should have eaten less cake.
I should have eaten less ice cream.
I should have eaten less candy.
I should have eaten less.
The only good news comes from those same scientists.
Because I was fat at midlife I have a much higher chance of dying of heart disease or stroke. You see I may not get Alzheimer’s because I will die first.
It is a race and no matter which wins I lose.
Ah!!! I have decided that until one or the other catches me I’m just going to live.
Now if I could only remember what I was going to do next.
8400 spins without a prize. Another losing morning for Old Hapless. He doesn't feel bad though because he saw a real winner last night on "Deal or no Deal". The guy not only checked his greed in time to go home with $300,000 but he proposed to the love of his life on national television. She said yes. He won twice. Hapless thinks the love was more important than the money.
Well Uncle Wiggly lovers if Old Hapless doesn't get so carried away that he decides to post more of his romances before tuesday and thus destroy forever the intended nature of this blog. We will be back tomorrow with another adventure of " As the World Spins"
Because of yesterday's post I am more aware of dreams. Last night I dreamed Betty and I were at a concert (not likely since I tend to hate most music) and I left my seat. Some guy with a funny hat came and took it and Betty let him. That's all I remember. But I was ticked. Another day , another link. I love the pictures of W. J. St. Christopher and todays mad cows.
Betty's late birthday gifts came. The one's from Walthers ( house kits for the HO layout) she expected because she picked them out. The other was a complete suprise. I got her a new 19" LCD monitor. She doesn't see as well as she used to and the old monitor was too big to be moved forward given the nature of her desk.This one is flat and two inches bigger and she loves it. See! Sometimes I do something right. I also put the arch together that will go over the sidewalk and carry the flower vines. Betty and I went to the Maunday Thursday Communion service. One could feel the very Presence of God. It was good to be in the house of the Lord. Well I need a breathing treatment.
