Captain & Tannille

Make Your Move 1979


OUT & BOUT:

Yes, I have been "bout" these days and totally digging it. I mean how does one not experience ones own surroundings?? It is one of the many reasons I throughly enjoy reading all of YOUR updates and what nots. 


I am feeling much better these days and finally discovering my own rhythm as well. Hips are effortlessly rolling with each step, cardiovascular system to be devised soon, and overall attitude is rock solid. Bitchin


Water is the priority and mixing in a packet every other day of Emergen C for those just because minerals and electrolytes. Plus, I scored big time with my volunteer food pick up's the other day. Vitamin Cottage donated a ton of organic berries, mangos, and carrots. I also unearthed decent organic veggies and ORGANIC BROWN EGGS!!!  

DOGS:

Quick little treat drop off. Their humans are home but I saw fit that they needed a just because treat from Uncle T. Classic 



And the answer is always 42 as well. I just love puppy dog eyes. Those expressive eyes, eyebrows that speak a silent thought, and ears that happily be. Love It 

AUSSIE OPEN:

Robert picked up tix for the Open 2023 and I was stoked with daily WHATSapp photos. He was in attendance for the rain debacle and even sent me the " Why was the roof open?" with photos attached. 





The bottom photo made my day. He picks up a new huggie every year at the Open and at the F1 Grand Prix in Albert Park. You can always count on that. 

SUNSETS:

The high desert certainly offers up some gorgeous sunsets. A beautiful hike with clean cold air filling your lungs, Come On. Crunchy snow under your boots and 360 degrees of peacefulness. Game Changer 

ORTHO:

Jump back and kiss myself. One of my goals for the year was building up the practice and WoW. I have been working with a number of new clients. 


My Ortho clients are the best. It is just so refreshing to hold a session with zero judgment. Once I am in my own skin, they are sharing a story from something, and I have a soft focus, releases happen without hesitations. So Cool 


Working with necks are a perfect example of that. There is something so rewarding being able to feel the cervical bones lengthen while in both of your hands. 


A new client came to me as a referral. Their go to massage therapist couldn't see them and they sent those folks my way. Unfortunately , this client fell backwards while walking their dog. Slipped on some ice and biffed it good. 


They were obviously rather guarded and stiff overall. I did my best to accommodate and reassure them that I believe the client always directs the session. None of that NO PAIN NO GAIN horsey poo. 


They sat on my table and made mention how soft my table is compared to their "own" therapist. So I slipped in the opportunity to work with them seated upright. They confusingly asked me ," You mean I don't have to lay down?" Absolutely not my friend. They smiled from ear to ear and we shared the best session in a long time. As they were leaving, they peered over their shoulder and stated," I reached for the door knob without wincing!!"  Lovely 


DEATH:

This new category of mine totally blows. I am now entering that phase of my life were I am witness to the passing of my idols. Cindy's passing shocked me. I cherished those childhood memories of watching Mork & Mindy followed up with Laverne & Shirley & Squiggy.


COMET:

Get Outside My Friends!! My phone rings last night when I was almost committed to sleepy by. They coaxed me to come out and play and claimed that I was at fault for their interest in this comet. I smile as I type this and so thankful that I caved in. What A Night!! Yes, it WAS freezing cold as our sky was crystal clear. We anchored their spotting scope on the roof of their truck and laughed the night away. Good Times 


CYCLING: 

My cycling efforts are non existent even though I am on the commuter bike everyday. I pulled up my STRAVA January 2023, 2022, 2021, and 2020 and have yet to discover a more piss poor performance. Yes the roads have been icy at times. Yes the temps are below freezing. Yes I could think of two hundred more excuses with my eyes staring into the sun. Again, I still ride the commuter bike but nothing significant to mention here. But my step count ... over 200,000 last week !! On pace for 250,000 by this Sunday. Truly stepping into the future I am. 

GOALS:

  1. Dancing On The Docks
  2. Belly Laugh 
  3. Ride When I Can
  4. Catch Up On Sleep 
  5. Good Ol CPA Time - Yahooo0000

I leave you with this little video of mine. I recently flew down to Sunny San Diego to help my buddy Tim build his deck. So this video contains a variety of time lapse footage, happy belly rubbing dogs, and photos from the main project. Or I should say, Progress !?! Hell, call me bat Sh*t crazy but I love flying over our Mother Earth. I Really Do 

Cheers

The Wall 1979

ORTHO:

Thanx to all of those New Years Resolution folks, been wildly busy in the office. Working with clients and meeting them in their model of the world totally kicks A$$. And I am a rather skilled, numerous arrows in my quiver, and above adequate body worker. Gratifying  


I can't even begin to explain about how many of my recent clients believed that they are athletes and push themselves way too far during this resolution month. We are talking cloistered individuals that break out of their funk and over due it. Mistakes include a poor warm up, clearly not thinking exercises through, and lifting more than they should even attempt. Not present in general but determined by Junes focus.


But it is NOT up to me to point out the obvious. My role is to simply listen and gradually put them back together. One client went tubbing with the family and accidentally became overzealous during their last run of the day. Claims the run was "very icy" and they over shot the strip. A happy little aspen tree brought the day to an abrupt end. OOF 


MEALS:

Been rockin the instant pot action. This one above was packed full of goodness with a hint of oh baby. Yams, green lintels, corn, okra, garbanzo beans, black beans, garlic, and an assortment of top drawer herbs for another easy delectable meal. Magnificent 


NEEDS:

So I have come to realize that I have truly let myself go during this winter break. No excuses here but I am feeling pathetic as all get out. Then, this little wake up call happens, I decided to step on the scale. A shocking visual of 203lbs / 92kg. Phuc  


Planning an updated photo at the end of February and I most likely targeting a healthy sub 190 Pounds / 86 Kilos. When my step count is 27,000+ steps by 3pm, my knees simply can't take the weight anymore. I am walking like a mad man but my overall cardio lacks big time. Hopefully this section of future blogs here wont be completely anticlimactic next month. Yikes 

DEATH:

Crosby passing at 81 wasn't all that astonishing because he should have passed at 71 years old. It is not that I have a jaded black heart but the guy was on borrowed time. He lived a legendary career and lifestyle. Crosby Stills And Nash will live on for sure. I am thankful that I comprehended and adored their creative ways and musical talents over the decades. 

The one that hurt was Lisa Presley. Now she has no Phuc-N idea who I am but I spent a week or so bringing her morning deliveries. I was a bellman in the late 80's at a five star golf and tennis resort. While she was a guest, she tipped me very well for my services. She was extremely polite during our brief encounters and she treated our entire bell staff with respect. You would never know that she was sitting on millions of dollars. Very Classy 

I guess that it is the fact that I wont remember where I was when I found out about Crosby. But I will remember when my buddy Bix sent me a text during my radio show regarding Lisa Marie Presley's passing. What Are Your Thoughts??  

DRIVING 101:

I drive to the airport gym around O Dark Hundred. The whole reason for this post today. I know that the three roundabout's ahead are slippy and rather treacherous when any form of moisture is involved. So this austere pick up truck immediately rides my A$$ up 12th street towards the first of three roundabouts. We received a VERY light dusting of snow last night and normally I would pass on mentioning such an insignificant occurrence. I hate tailgating under any road conditions and quickly made the conscious choice to pull over in a city bus stop pull out and allow them the satisfaction of douching the street in black thick exhaust. Trump Bumper Stickers Are So Cool 

Now I knew that the concrete poured roundabout wasn't far away but didn't think too much of it at the time.  Sure as can be, that rig missed the turn, drove through the roundabout with their front wheels cranked over to the right, up the center curb, and straight into the health living baby pine trees and boulder features. The truck was totally high centered and their break lights were still on as I entered the circle. Might as well try the emergency brake as well there dumbA$$. Classic

I really shouldn't have stooped so low but shamefully I did. As I creeped into the roundabout with my high beams on, gingerly scampered around the turn, carefully navigating myself safely through, with my window down and hand on the horn, I reached my left arm as far out as I could, and displayed the world wide gesture of finger language. The Bird

COMET:

Using my old iPhone and a spotting scope, here is my accomplishment for the morning. I captured this just after 4am Sunday morning from Little Park Road facing north. Apparently, Comet e3 is only going to become brighter and brighter over these next 7 days. Can't Wait 

DEEP:

The Grand Mesa received way more snow than I anticipated last week. Very little fell or even accumulated in the valley as the forecasts claimed 3 to 6 inches were on the way. Not So!! Denver apparently got slammed and the Continental Divide received plenty of the fresh Pow Pow. Heard that Wolf Creek And Telluride saw about a foot or so. So That's Cool 


I experienced a lovely snowshoe session beginning with complete isolation. Like nobody was around last Tuesday and I hip hopped my happy A$$ around the hillsides. Through the trees is always a must for hearing / witnessing those pillow sized powder balls clumsily falling between evergreen limbs. Beautiful 



The morning ski patrol was exactly pleased with my route decision making and politely asked me to stay in the trees, turn around, and stay off the groomed SKI RUNS. It was a first for me but I didn't make a fuss or even mention that I was only here for the Instagram Selfie. BTW I do not subscribe to Instagram. 

GOALS:

  1. Bumping Up The Cardio
  2. Smaller Portions Washed Down With H2o
  3. Shuck And Jive
  4. Books Rooms In April  
  5. Clean Out Old CD's And Clothes For Good Will 
  6. Keep Looking Up
  7. Reframe From Giving The Bird For The Rest Of 2023 

  

February Is Just Around The Corner, Make These Next Few Days Count, And Remind Yourself Just Far You Have Come In Life. 

Cheers

The Magic Carpet Ride 2023

I Think I Am Going Mad And It Is Making Me Sad     It's A Yearning For My Old Back Door    I Realize Maybe I Was Born To Lead      Better Swallow My Silly Country Pride   Going Home Running Home Down The Gasoline Alley Where I Was Born      When The Weather Is Better And The Rails Unfreeze   And The Wind Wont Whistle Round My Knees     I'll Put On My Weather Suit And Catch You In The Rain   I'll Be Home Before The Milk's Upon The Floor 


Rod Stewart

1970 Gasoline Alley 

RADIO SHOW:

HERE ( click that "here" for the link ) is the link for my latest and first 2023 radio show. The show starts off with about a minute of the pervious show's song. The Magic Carpet Ride begins with Wide Spread Panic covering Steppenwolf's MCR. I do a quick thank you acknowledgment to pervious shows DJ's and then we get bizarre. 


This version of the Magic Carpet Ride kicks A$$ on a number of fronts. The biggest difference maker would be the fact that I knew this would NOT be a perfect show. Was going in rusty and totally looking forward to simply jammin on out. 


I featured Kung Fu clips from the 1972 televised series, offered up 4 trivia questions, and this wasn't no nostalgia show there grasshopper. The King Lives 


I executed an entertaining show, matched clips with musical cuts, and littered the airwaves with remixed and mash up tracks. Turn It Up 


There was something so freeing to the fact that I arrived completely stress free. I used to way over think my shows. Sometimes I would arrive with about 6 hours of music for an intended 2 hour time slot. This show was all about enjoying the moment and riding the magic carpet. 


Even when I played Led Zeppelin by mistake, No Worries. I kept my composure and didn't allow that mistake to ruin my night. So what if I hit play on CD 1 when I clearly meant to air CD 2. Whatever 


My only complaint was that the high energy beats and my enthusiasm allowed the clock to fly by way too quickly. When I realized I only had a half hour left of the show, kinda bummed me out for a second. But the music picked me right back up and I finished the show so strong. Loved It 

And what also rocked my world were the trivia playing callers attempting to correctly answering questions genuinely expressed how they have missed me. I am some touching moments for sure. I wasn't prepared for those conversations at all but those voices of reason were welcoming and very humbling. A few of them were very out spoken about how awful STAFF at the station are. I just listened because I was hosting a show and that wasn't the proper time to engage. But in my mind, I wanted to bluntly ask them why I am the only Mother Phuc at the Board Meeting as Joe Q Public. 

But I just steady the ship and moved forward in my musical world of make believe. I really hope that you have a listen because the KISS remix is worthy of a listen. You gotta check out the Glenn Campbell jam for sure. Its unreal!!! Hopefully you get a kick out of Master and Grasshopper prominences as well. Be Like A Running Brook 

And then the best was this photo above. Can you believe that the Program Director sent this to me?? I forwarded to everyone. I added my two cents with something like this would be the new protocol when a volunteer enters KAFM. Doesn't Everyone Receive An Email Like This?? Harassment 101

GOALS:

  1. Shovel Because It Just Has To Snow Soon 
  2. Call The Graphic Designer AGAIN 
  3. Book A New Client
  4. Stretch With Intention 
  5. Check In With / On Friends 

Comet E3 is now visible and will be until early Feb. Grab a pair of binoculars and look towards the Little Dipper in the northern sky. Under a super dark unpolluted night sky, the naked eye will do just fine. But with your favorite pair of binoculars in hand, that greenish ball of light is mind boggling. 

Keep Looking Up,

Cheers
