Any movement with your wife?

I’m heartbroken in your behalf.

Thanks. I’m still interested in reconciliation, but the idea of divorce doesn’t bother me now. No idea yet of what she’s thinking.

You’re certainly patient! I’d have had to blow the entire thing up just to stop the uncertainty.

Patience is my middle name. Need that for negotiations.

Belt squat 4 x 10 up to 658 (machine weight 68)
hack squat 4 x 10 up to 530 (machine weight 90)
Leg curl 4 x 10 170 - 225
leg press calf raise 4 x 20 630- 748 (machine weight 118)
seated calf raise 4 x 20 90 - 140

Some weight increase for leg work. Finally wore glasses to see the machine amount of weight added to exercises, just been guessing before. I like Crippler’s doing belt squat and hack squat in same workout. About the only thing I can do to “sort of mimic” his workouts. If I can just get handstand pushups back into workouts…

76 today. Feel as good as yesterday.

No response from my invitation to wife for drinks this pm at classy neighborhood bar. I’ll go and wait half an hour for her to show up. If she’s a no show then I’ll start dating. Either way is an advantage but I’d really rather not throw away what I thought were 13 good years with her.

Today is your birthday? And no response?

Oh, but it’s still early morning. Ok.

Because I’m starting to hate her.

And now it seems odd to say happy birthday. :grimacing:
