The Sixties, 1966
No word about the T.V. job.
The only achievement for me has been at the gym. The Air Force book rates the standard for forty-five to fortynine years as twenty-three reps for exercise 2. I do thirty. Thirty-three reps for exercise 3. I do fifty-five. Twenty reps for exercise 4. I do twenty — though only just. Yesterday I weighed between 147 and 148. I still keep up the low-fat diet.
