From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 09/23/19, 5:27 AM - "GOOD MORNING ON A MONDAY, MONDAY!":
word for today is MOVE. If you have to go to work
today: MOVE. If you don't have to go to work
anymore: MOVE anyway. Young or old, fat or thin or
just perfect, keep that body moving. As long as you
can MOVE, you'll be able to MOVE. When you stop,
however, it's over. So, get up and do something.
Take in a beautiful sunrise and smell the morning
air. Be it on the coast, in the mountains, in the
city or the forest or even in the Florida swamps,
it's always fresher in the morning. Do something
with your day to keep going. Take a hike, ride a
bike, go for a swim-whatever. It's only going to be
a great day if you make it so in your head and with
And, as an added aid, open up your heart and let out all that extra Spirit that you stored up from yesterday and spread the SONSHINE around. Now, get up little doggies and move. You'll feel better and the world will look better. Heaven's blessings to you all.
Thank you, Jimmy!

From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/22/19:
As I pulled into the gas station, I noticed a woman trying to push her
car toward the pump. Having always considered myself a Good Samaritan, I
parked and joined her in pushing her car.
"What are you doing?" she asked.
"I'm giving you a hand," I said. "What are you doing?"
"I'm stretching before my run."
