New Friendships

For past six months I have been participating in a walking challenge. It is a challenge on the Samsung Health app.

The goal is to have over 200,000 steps a month. It’s been fun doing the challenges. But an unexpected surprise is the new friends that I have meet on there.

We all have the same goals and when we challenge each other, we encourage each other to do our best.

I have chatted with these new friends on the app and some I have even chatted on our cell phones.

It amazes me how you can meet someone online and create a friendship. i feel so blessed that our paths crossed.

So this is a shout out to Tom. Thanks for being a friend. I’m looking forward to our challenges and conversations.


I decided that I will post random selfies here to remind me of what I looked like and where I was when I took the selfie.

This self was taken at Mission San José in San Antonio, Texas. I have been going to the church service there for the past couple of weeks. I have enjoyed going there and walking the grounds afterwards.

I Smell Cake*

Well they say that the stars go in three’s and here is a case of that being true. In the past couple of weeks three icons from my youth have past away.

All of them were stars in their time and provided their own brand of entertainment. Thank goodness that they will live on forever with their performances.

R.I.P and thank you for entertaining us.

“My Cake” is the sixth episode of Scrubs’ fourth season. J.D.’s father dies and he and his brother Dan have to cope with it.


Well, I finally got to see the musical Hamilton the other night at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio, Texas.

What an amazing show. I had no idea what it was about or any of the music. And I didn’t read anything about it before going to the theater. I wanted to experience for the first time there.

It was such a great show and I am so glad that i had the chance to see it.

Here are my pictures I took of a great night.

Samsung Health

This past November 2018, an old friend from high school introduced me the the Samsung Health Challenge.

Samsung Health provides core features to keep up your body fit and healthy. It will record and analyze your daily activities and habits to help maintain successful diet and lead healthy lifestyle.

The Challenge is to get 200,000 steps a month.

This was something that I thought I could never do. But with losing almost 200 pounds, having a friend push me and motivate me, I’ve beat the goal each month since.

Here is my record step count since I started.

I have see where I rank out of the over 1.3 million people who signed up for the challenge. But I’m pretty happy at my numbers for April.

Now for May. My goal is 450,000 steps. And I’m going to do it!

Special thanks to Rob C, you motivated me to give my best.

Make it a great day.

Concert Bucket List — Justin Timberlake

In January 19, 2019 I checked of another concert that was on my Concert Bucket List… Justin Timberlake.

I brought the ticket for the concert about 7 months ago when they first went on sale. I’m a JT fan, but I have to admit I don’t all of his songs. But I had read and heard that he gives an awesome concert. So I wanted to see him.

It was a sold out concert at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

And he did have an high performance concert of singing and dancing.

I had a great time.

Another ✔️ on my Concert Bucket List.
