    Okay…. I haven't done this—yet. But I am averaging 30-45 push-ups AND 30 dips AND 3 sets of presses (barbell, dumbbell, etc.) at each and every trainer workout. Finally, Mel, the fitness bug has bit me in the ass. A long way to go…but feet firmly planted on the road. Miss you! Looking forward to living vicariously through you as you visit eastern Europe next month. (And you can live vicariously through me as I visit It'ly and the U.K. in October.) XO

    Richard! That's awesome. Rock on with your bad self.

    Where are you going in Italy? My parents spent a month in Vicenza this summer and fell in love with it. OX.

    We were insanely young. Happy memories. Will depart for VCE on 10/14; then to LON on 10/26. A month in Italy would be a lifetime too short. As is, I'll have to treasure each and every one of my ten canal-kissed days.
