I think I will return to Weight Watchers. My weight, down early last year to almost too low,
shot up by early this year to much too high. Though I am now losing weight, I like the regimen of the weekly Weight Watchers meeting. I had resisted going back, as it curtails my Sunday afternoons a bit, but this Sunday or so is the right time to return.

I sign off now, though,to take Beatrice for a morning walk before the heat comes up.
