I just went for a nice walk around the neighborhood to finish up my steps for the day, and to take some pictures for this post. I laughed at the one on the right, which has the phrase I've seen a few times in my life: "Hey guys, watch this!" I think those two skeleton feet sticking out in front of it are related, don't you? I also wondered who the heck "Pat Riarchy" is, until I put the two names together. Funny!

I walk by these two guys every time I go into my apartment. Although they are not socially distanced, they are probably pretty safe from Covid. And the Masked One brings a smile every time.
Some of you may remember that I bought myself an Apple Watch a few weeks ago. I have gotten used to it now, and have even taken a few phone calls from my wrist. It doesn't seem possible to make private calls, unless I already have earphones in, which of course I usually don't. I really like the fact that the exercise rings are not super easy to close, but I manage most days. Just getting in 10,000 steps is not enough to reliably close the "Move" ring, which measures the number of calories you have burned. And I've gotten the watch face close to what I like to see at a glance: my exercise status, the time and date, the weather, battery level, how much sleep I got last night, and record a new workout. Take a look:

The number of watch faces I can choose from is enormous, and what I want to put up front is also enormous. Hundreds of "complications" are available, and I've fiddled with them often, but I've used this combination for a week now. Sometimes I get a little annoyed when my watch tells me that it's time to stand up and move, and those three rings (upper left) are blank every morning, and make me want to fill them up.
At first I called the watch "the bully on my wrist," but I've changed it to "the cheerleader on my wrist," because she wants nothing more than to please me and help me get strong and fit. And it's fun, too. We need all the smiles and fun we can get right now, don't you think?
