5 lbs of cherries

I love cherries… I allow myself cherries and oysters (raw; half-shell; not fried!  no remoulade sauce!) in unlimited quantities as my treats.

The cherry season is winding down, and I see I’m up 4 lbs.  Damn!  That happened last year, too, but the lbs went away once the cherries disappeared from the store shelves 🙂

The other day, I bought 5 lbs of cherries.  Because of my bad neck, rather than carry them, I strapped the bag around my waist with my fanny pack, and walked home.

Interestingly… I noticed the difference walking with an additional 5 lb load – I was a little slower.  Think how much 125 extra lbs slowed me down!  I’m thankful for the lighter load I have these days.

PS:  Tip for the day… If you can, walk to the grocery store; remember push carts?
