On whales and working out


I finally joined a gym. I had to do it, you see. I’ve withered away to a mere 165 lbs in the last year. The gym is small, but it has everything I need and is never crowded. It feels great to be lifting weights again.

After my workout this morning I sat for a while and read the latest issue of National Geographic. There was a terrific article on the Evolution of Whales. Sadly the entire story is not on line; you’ll have to subscribe if you want to read the whole thing. But the excerpt at the site has an extraordinary close-up photo of a whale’s eye that I just had to link. Check it out!
