We are a month past winter solstice and the days are getting longer. Signs of Spring are starting to appear.
Even the cats are coming outdoors.
Other good news....
"Benign Holter Monitor with rare PVCs and PACs and no complex ventricular ectopy noted. He did have one 6-beat run of SVT at 21:00. He tends to bradycardic during sleeping hours with a low of 39 bpm at 02:08:10."
This morning, after my eight laps ( EIGHT LAPS!! Four Hundred yards!! Count them!!! Yeah!!) I walked from the lap pool over to the other pool and checked it out. This is where the kids play I'm told and also where water exercise and water therapy classes take place. I'm an early morning guy and all is quiet at this end when I'm here. It'snot always that way!!
This is looking out the windows west down Maple Street straight towards Soldier's Bay.
Note the daylight at 7:15 AM!! The days are getting longer. :-)
You may remember this photo I took during the coast walk on the mill site property. This is from Soldier's Bay looking up Maple Street at the pool!! Those windows you see across the bottom of the pool, by the white car, are the windows in the previous photo!
I joined this pool in the middle of December. I started swimming two laps each day that first week and progressed to three the next week. Four the next and so on up to eight this week. I'm feeling really good about getting back into swimming.
As for my PVC.s and that Holter Monitor business, I have yet to learn the results, maybe today. I have not had any more "events". Knock wood.
Well peeps, my seven hundredth blog!! This is my first one posted October 6th, 2006.
I've come a long way baby but I'm still here. There have been times I thought I had done everything there is to do in Fort Bragg; nothing left to walk and gawk but the other evening I was walking home from the crab feed and saw a whole different version of Fort Bragg that I never see during my wee morning meanders. I realize I have hardly scratched the surface of this town. There is so much more to learn and see.
Also, because of blogging, I have met a great bunch of folks in the blogging world who I have never met! They are over there in the side bar. They help keep me going, inspire me and a special thanks to "Anonymous". You know who you are and thanks for all the comments! :-)
I recently discovered a site called Blog2Print. They will convert my blog into a book. I decided to give it a try. I had my blogs from October 6th to December 31st, 2006 put into book form. Above and below are the results. I'm impressed. They do a nice job. The down side is they are very expensive. It will cost me over $350.00 to print out the seven books it will take to cover 700 blogs!
Our lament about lack of rain has come to an end. The way it has been going this past week we will be back to our "normal" rain totals post haste.
I am always amazed at how slow the seasons change here. The dry season goes on and on and I forget all about what it was like sitting in the dark during power outages and raging storms. Yet, every year, this cycle comes round. The MCLandLopers outing was cancelled, due to rain and wind. This morning I got soaked walking home from the pool!!
There, that's more like it! A newer style monitor on an older style body!! (I can explain about my little boobies. They ain't from smoking dope. I got them from taking estrogen while fighting off prostate cancer several years ago.)
By the way, the power returned at 2:00 PM in my section of Fort Bragg. More storms are on the way.
I'll find out what the monitor recorded in a few days.
