Coffee Drinker and Collie Update

21 Jun

OK now that I have your attention. I’ve been trying to get back into some kind of normal routine here in Florida. The medical opinion is in-operable means in-operable so no gama knife, surgery or radiation. My left eye might clear if I’m good, if not I’ll be a one eyed triathlete (hey maybe I’ll change my blog title to One-Eyed Oldman) So learn to deal with it and get use to dizzy. For those that asked no I haven’t seen Tony since I returned. He has been in Buenos Aires for 3 weeks but we plan to ride Friday morning.

My Chilean neighbor, not having seen me in 3 months, greeted me by saying “You look like you’ve gain some weight in you tummy!”. So, I’ve been riding in the mornings 25 miles M-W-F and 15 miles on T-Th then at lunch time I ride my bike to the pool and swimming 3,500 yards and in the evenings I run M-W-F 5 miles and T-Th 7 miles on a dreadmill , in the evening due to the thunderstorms (we get a storm everyday around 5 pm in the summer months). Saturday I think I’ll go to the beach, Doc’s Beach House, in the morning to do a long ow swim and then run hopefully 12 miles. Sunday will be around the island with Tony for 60 miles.

This morning on my mornings bike I saw them, yup Coffee Drinker and Collie. Not a kind word or glance was exchanged between us. No I think that dog really likes to get his master mad at me, I can see it in his eyes. Collie’s leash was attached to a tree and Coffee Drinker was washing some metal bar stools. I could just tell Collie wanted to get free and spill the coffee…he tried to get one of the stools to fall over but Coffee Drinker was there to catch it. Hey did I do that? Kewl!

OK now back to looking for a job…. any one need an old broken down triathlete to work for them?

    ‘One-Eyed Old Man’ might get some NAMBLA folks to stop by or some of the pervs that haven’t been caught on Datelines latest foray into catching kid stalkers from My Space.Other than that I love reading your training log

    I think you’re having far too much fun being unemployed to even think about getting a job. I think you should be Pirate Oldman.

    Hmmm…be careful if you are getting dizzy with all that bike riding you do!I guess maybe your body will adapt in time.You have a great attitude and can always register as a challenged athlete if you DO have to change your name to “One eye”. Hope not. Keep your chin up and keep your good eye on that dog and the coffee guy!
