The Frenzls

I love this family!!  Bill Frenzl, Keith, Bob, Linda, Kathy, Roy and Connie.
Sadly, missing are mother Mary Ann Hickle Frenzl and Brian who would be between Kathy and Roy.
I spent many summers visiting my Grandma Mary Hammer in Claflin, KS.  The Frenzls lived next door in a great big house!
When I visited we'd play, ride bikes, go hiking, catch fireflies, make home made ice cream and have a wonderful funderful time.  A time in my life..that I look back on with great fondness!
Thanks to Facebook I have found and reconnected with them.  So so happy for technology!
This was at the wedding of Linda's daughter.
Years may go by..but memories hold dear!!

Sunday in Central Park

What a great day.  Got up, went to Marble Collegiate Church with Jeri, then went to the Vitamin Shoppe to restock, went to the gym to do back exercises and crunches, then bought some nasal stuff at the drug store, which WORKED..no more clogged ear, then got a HAIR CUT.  And it went so well and easy.
Then I went up to meet Adam and Lane and Rocco in Central Park.  What a glorious weather day we had.
Very happy!!

Then I walked up to Lincoln Center and walked around.

Finally Fire Island

Thanks to my friend Phil I went to Fire Island for the first time ever.  Nice.  Not as bad or scary as I thought.  Of course it was Tues/Wed during the week so much less busy.  Which was fine by me.
High prices for food, cute deer but aggressive and covered with ticks and odd growths were about the only drawbacks.  But two days was enough.

One More Time...This Time to Stay

I have been up and down weight wise my whole life, 53 years.  Up down up down up down.  For various "reasons".  This past Christmas & New Years Eve I got up to 220.  I saw the pics and said..enough is enough.
So, I put down the ice cream and cookies and chips and bread and candy and picked up salad and the gym.  With the assistance of Garcinia Cambogia, which helped to burn the belly fat, in tandem with diet and exercise, this morning I was 156.  I want to get down to 150, then fluctuate between 150-155.
I put together this collage from pics.
This time...for real!!
