      My inner voice has a bit of an ego. Probably why I'm no stranger to PT! :-) Thankfully your "override" switch works well and initiates a sensible inner voice. Good for you. Cheers to making good decisions!

      You know...if you start doing things based on voices in your head telling you what to do your next running jacket may be white with arms that tie in the back. Just saying...I'm glad you used some discretion. 146 days! Keep going Vern!! Hope you are feeling good today.
