a funny meme via somewhere on the internet for all of us who might’ve overindulged during the holidays
Gramps subscribes to an excellent farm publication called Farm Show Magazine. The editor usually has some pithy observations and funny jokes along with many helpful articles. (One of the most interesting articles last issue was entitled, Clock Powered By Dead Flies, and one of the jokes went a little bit like this:
Farmer Guy 1: I just heard something scary…twenty-five percent of women in the US are being treated for mental illness.
Farmer Guy 2: Great. That means seventy-five percent of them are running around untreated.
Oh, ha, ha. That’s SO hilarious.)
Okay…wait. What was I wanting to talk about?
Oh, right…fat. (Which reminds me of something funny I heard a woman say one time as she rolled her eyes: “If that guy wanted to lose forty-pounds of ugly fat, he could just cut off his head.”)
Let’s see, now…Oh, yes. Fitness and Farm Show.
The Farm Show editor also made a few health and fitness observations last issue.
If walking were good for your health, the postman (or woman) would be immortal
A whale swims all day, only eats fish and drinks water, but is still fat.
A rabbit runs and hops all day long but only lives–at most–fifteen years.
A tortoise doesn’t run and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years.
Just something to think about while we map out New Year’s fitness resolutions. And while we’re at it, don’t forget this:

Until next time, God bless all y’all in your resolutions, and as you get back in the groove after the holidays, enjoy 4 Him singing Psalm 112 to help us kick off a new year.[youtube.com/watch?v=aceChBwbkzk]
