The Importance of Walking
Walking can add minutes to your life.
This enables you at 85 years old
to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing
home at $2000 per month.

My grandpa started walking
five miles a day when he was 60.
Now he’s 97 years old
and we don’t know where the hell he is.

I like long walks,
especially when they are taken
by people who annoy me.

The only reason I would take up walking
is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

I have to walk early in the morning,
before my brain figures out what I’m doing..

I joined a health club last year,
spent about $1200.
Haven’t lost a pound.
Apparently you have to go there..

Every time I hear the dirty word ‘exercise’,
I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

I do have flabby thighs,
but fortunately my stomach covers them.

The advantage of exercising every day
is so when you die, they’ll say,
‘Well, she looks good doesn’t she.’

If you are going to try cross-country skiing,
start with a small country.

I know I got a lot of exercise
the last few years,.......
just getting over the hill.

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.


Every time I start thinking too much
about how I look,
I just find a Happy Hour have a few drinks
and by the time I leave,
I look just fine.

You could run this over to your friends
But just e-mail it to them!

I tried jogging, but I had to quit.

The wind kept putting out my cigarette.

I started running at 40, and didn’t stop smoking until I was 41.

There was a LOT of wheezing that year! :-)

Walking? Is this something new I haven’t heard about yet?
