Finally we got the walls completed and the door up on the chicken coop.  That’s it for the heavy lifting.

Friday night’s karate classes were cancelled, as I found out when I got there, so I got my new gi today. Having finished my first 6 months (actually 7) and signed on for more I’m now considered a BBC (Black Belt Champions) student and get a black gi with the BBC logo on the back, replacing the dingy formerly-white logo-less gi I started with. The style of the gi also is different, and I like the look better, though the fabric’s stiffer than that of the white one. What’s really cool though is the red gi you get with the black belt. Eventually.

  1. What are toes? I believe I saw them in 1983, but I’ve forgotten where they were.

    Congratulations, Doctroid-san: wax on, wax off.


  2. Chris, you should start coming to my dojo, so I won’t be the oldest one in the class.

    There was a 63 year old woman who’d lost something like 250 lb before starting with us. I liked her. But unfortunately she apparently dropped out pretty quickly.

    There may be (in fact I think there are) some older people in the advanced class but in the basic class, I think I have 10 years on anyone else.

    Still, one should not confuse numerical age with being old. Not long before I started this I remember seeing a news story about a guy who was making his ballet stage debut at age 88. I wasn’t about to let him make me look like a wuss.

    And I can indeed reach my toes. One of the benefits of having long arms, you know.
