BWahahaAH! - and Sad

That's right. I'm laughing at those Fajitas, all 4 of them. Why? Because I showed them who's boss. Today weigh-in was a mirror of yesterday's ultra low 254. How did I manage to do this after eating 4 fajitas for lunch? Well, by purging of course!

No, just kidding. Instead of purging I walked a total of 3 miles after lunch, and had a light dinner. Then I did some moderately strenuous activity when I got home (more moving things into storage). Go me!

On a different note, without further adieu I'd like to share with you a poem I wrote about my good friend with whom I parted ways with last night after quite some time: my 1980 Jeep CJ-7.

My Jeep CJ

7 long years, me and my jeep,
we tore up the road and the trail and my knuckles,
flat tires, no gas, bad brakes and wet feet,
I'd fix you again, my will never buckled

from the ground up I built you, everything needs replaced
I'd hammer and weld, 'til red in the face

time after time, you'd require much cash
I'd love you as mine, while others yelled, "trash!"

now the time has come, that we must part ways
a house near the road, will instead fill my days

I'll always remember you, for all that you were
the times that we had, passed like a blur

that time, I drove you into a tree?
new fenders, new hood, less money for me?

that time, I drove you into a street sign?
too many drinks, perhaps too much wine?

that time, I rolled you, onto your side?
couldn't see that hole, perhaps I was blind?

I remember it all, like it was today
I'd do it again, not put you away

but life is here, better senses prevail
plus you sit in the road, ignored without fail

your value is burning a hole in my pocket
I just bought a house, you must go now, so.....fark it

goodbye jeep

Nice on overcoming the 4 fajitas.
Sorry you had to say good-bye to your beloved but it sounds like a new one is on the horizon.

So sad to lose the old ride. :( But hey, you made the right choice. Congrats on telling those fajitas where to go too. That musta felt great.
