    Oh, so THAT’S why they’re both in such stellar physical shape! Who knew? snort!

    I’ve been doing it wrong! Wow! I’m going to pack dream bars for a snack and maybe stop for a Vente Mocha Frappacino on the way home.

    Will those outfits be advertised on the web page anytime soon?

    My head exploded! They did 20 minutes of exercise?

    No, no….

    they’re GONE for 20 minutes.


    Note Joy put the cake in the oven before they left….
    you don’t suppose she asked Patty to take it out in 28 minutes when the timer beeped?


    No, she knew she didn’t have to.


    6 minutes to get there,

    They’re already dressed for it…. one minute to sign in, one minute for Joy to lift a 2 pound dumbbell while Burl watches…. then reverse…. that leaves the other 5 minutes for the treadmill….
    including three minutes to change all the settings so they could keep up.

    that makes 8 minutes total at the gym…

    6 minutes home = 20 minutes.
    Voila!


    Home in plenty of time to “make” a can of fudge frosting for the cake.


    Usually Joy buys her baked goods, but she picked up a cake mix so Patty could have a real home made treat when she was visiting.

    I bet they all cheer when they leave..
    How much do they pay for the use of the dumbbells I wonder?
    I think they only go once a month if that often.
    They are the dumbbells anyway.

    I can’t believe this brainless, idiotic, stupid, never even slightly humorous piece of crap is still taking up space here. I read it to remind myself that stupid rules in America, and that there is always a down side to life!

    Sorry, Crabby…..but like they said ‘bout The Washington Post: "If ya don’t get it, ya DON’T GET IT!!"
    Most of the folks weighing in on this strip enjoy doing it. BTW, do you check out the BUNI strip sometimes?

    ….and as regards today’s rip-roarin’, high-falootin’ episode: ah well, at least they were dressed for it…..those are almost cool matched workout-fits!!

    No, but the rinsed out Odor-Eaters will be on there soon.

    No! No! This will never do! I know it’s not much, but even twenty minutes might somehow increase their lifetimes by some small fraction, and we just can’t have that.

    Who am I kidding? These sorts live forever, anyway.

    Can you imagine the pounding a treadmill would suffer in a 20 minute workout under those loads. The belt must be shredded, the motor smoking hot as no way they help by adding any of their own power. They need a treadmill made out of an upside down Caterpillar tractor tread.

    Oh, yes! Their diet and exercise regime are so good that they should advise the rest of us. Never mind that, while over 10 years younger, they look older because of added bodyfat and flab.

    Time to get into something so I can work out (I still prefer to do mine at home- cheaper, and I don’t need a crowd to be motivated).
