When I was young we used to go "skinny dipping"; now we just "chunky dunk"

“The value of doing something does not lie in the ease or difficulty, the probability or improbability of its achievement, but in the vision, the plan, the determination and the perseverance, the effort and the struggle which go into the project. Life is enriched by aspiration and effort, rather than by acquisition and accumulation.”

― Helen Nearing, The Good Life

I love this! I make it a lot and it is good either cold or hot. Yummy recipe cat lover!
We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Don't get your knickers in a knot It makes you walk funny!
