Wifey B: This is the list I was talking about being really good at one...

Dog washing
Cloths Washing

Gaston posted that.

I'm like a pro at the "shopping" bit.

I have done housework, laundry and cooking.

I have never done gardening and dog washing.

After much thought, I decided that a few cab trips to and from stores would be cheaper than bicycles and would require no storage space or maintenance. That said, we haven't yet taken a cab. I did buy a folding grocery cart and it's been handy for grocery shopping and carrying laundry.

Many marinas are within a reasonable walking distance of a grocery store and the dollar stores have started carrying some food items.

Wifey B: you left off mousing round TF...

According to Mousotron, I've moused over 19 miles in the last 60 days... Not to mention 499985 keystrokes and 138640 mouse clicks.

I don't get out much

Sounds pretty exhausting. That's why I've always used a trackball since they first came out for the Mac and later PCs. First, it's always exactly where I left it. And second, it's comfortable and doesn't tire out one's wrist.

My Galley Wench and I do some bicycling, a fair amount of walking, swimming (though I do more floating with a cold drink).
