    Finally an exercise program for the rest of us!

    Physical exercise is good for you. I know that I should do it daily,
    but my body doesn't want me to do too much,
    so I have worked out this program:

    Beating around the bush.
    Jumping to conclusions.
    Climbing the walls.
    Swallowing my pride.

    Dragging my heels.
    Pushing my luck.
    Making mountains out of mole hills.
    Hitting the nail on the head.
    Wading through paperwork.

    Bending over backwards.
    Jumping on the band wagon.
    Balancing the books.
    Running around in circles.

    Tooting my own horn.
    Climbing the ladder of success.
    Pulling out the stops.
    Adding fuel to the fire.

    Opening a can of worms.
    Putting my foot in my mouth.
    Starting the ball rolling.
    Going over the edge.

    Senior exercise:
    For those of us getting along in years, here is a little secret for building your arm and shoulder muscles. You might want to adopt this regimen. Three days a week works well.

    Begin by standing outside behind the house, with a 5-LB. potato sack in each hand. Extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can-try to reach a full minute. Relax.
    After a few weeks, move up to 10-LB. potato sacks, and then 50-LB potato sacks, and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-LB. potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight out for more than a full minute.

    After you feel confident at that level, start putting a couple of potatoes in each of the sacks, but be careful not to overdo it.
