You're probably already on your way Rick, and may not see this - sending best wishes across the miles to you and your wife for a safe travel. Please check in here when you get home.

This is my first time attempting to upload a photo on this site so I hope it works. This is me after shoveling two feet of snow a week ago!

You look like you're "happy smiling" after shoveling all that snow, NYBrit. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't look as happy. You would think by now I'd be use to snow up the ying-yang, too, after our snow dumps of last winter. It's your turn.

LOL> I think I was happy because for the first time I was able to shovel the snow without getting out of breath or having palpitations. I went on a health journey in 2015, losing over 30 lbs and I started running. I'm definitely much fitter than I used to be and it really showed when it came to clearing away the snow.

I noticed you mentioned those accomplishments in a different thread. Congrats to you! It isn't easy, getting healthy. Keep up the good work, and welcome back to DC.

Thank you. I'll be haunting the healthy food forums from now on getting ideas.
Getting healthy is not the easiest thing but it's definitely much easier when you see dramatic results.

Went to bed about 4-ish this morning - no snow. Got up around 11 - this is what greeted me! There is about a foot's worth on the round table (there really is an iron mesh table under there) and birds all over the feeders, ground, and trees. That puffball to the left of the male cardinal in the tree in the distance is a mourning dove. I've never seen one that fluffy!
