Until my nephew began wrestling for his high school (and later college) I’d never attended a wrestling match. But I started going to my nephew’s and found them interesting. Wrestling requires a good deal of dedication from its participants. The training is intensive and proper diet is essential. And then there is strategy. I have a lot of respect for guys who wrestle, plus certain guys look terrific in their singlets, which leave little to the imagination.
Do you find the young men in today’s photo posts as appealing as I do? 😉
I spent a delightful evening yesterday with my neighbors, sharing a tasty meal of white claim sauce over linguine and a freshly tossed salad. Wine was abundant and the conversation lively. What a great way to spend a few hours.
I slept in a little late this morning, finally rising at nine AM. I worked on a writing project for a while, and then I solved today’s L.A. Times crossword puzzle. I ran a load of laundry and read a chapter in a novel I’m immersed in titled The Zookeeper’s Wife, a really fine piece of writing. Now it’s close to eleven AM and in just a few minutes I’ll take a three-mile walk.
It’s a beautiful morning, here on the island, about 70 degrees F, sunny and still. After my walk, I’ll have a little lunch. Then I have a busy rest of the day: bank, post office to mail in my tax return, and a dentist appointment to have a new crown installed. (Ugh.) Tonight I’ll drive into the city to dine out with a friend, and then we’ll see a film at a theater complex in downtown St. Petersburg. It’s a ritual we observe a couple of times each month and I always enjoy myself.
All right, everyone, I need to get moving, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Tuesday, wherever you might be. And keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂
