    I figured most of it would be in the hands and forearms. At least, back in the days when I lived in Silicon Valley and went climbing with some friends, those were the parts of my body that were the most sore (followed by the lower back). I was probably not lean enough at the time (was about 10 lbs overweight). Weight is your worst enemy when it comes to gravity!

    Forearms are definitely affected. It's a full body workout and seriously addicting. The most common indoor climbing injuries come from overuse, because muscles gain strength far faster than tendons and people won't take the time off to fully recover.

    Our Shetland Sheepdog puppy, Max. He's eight weeks old and just came home with us today. If this photo doesn't make you smile you have no soul. ;)

    He'd cuddle you right back! Shelties can be nervous, but Max is very outgoing. So far he's settling in remarkably well. Our Golden Retriever, Marley, is very excited to have a little brother, but is backing away a bit because Max is so small. The cats can't stand Max, but the cats hate Marley, too, so it's nothing personal. ;)

    What did my grandma do for her 90th birthday?
    Oh, that's right, she learned how to play Bags.

    Bags? I've only heard "cornhole" for that game, and that was mostly in Cincinnati

    Probably just a regional thing. Same difference.

    It's called "Bag Toss" as far as I'm concerned.

    Whatever you want to call it, I thought it was hilarious that my 90-year old grandmother decided to play it on her birthday.

    Yes, I loved it! Definitely going to go again. Wish I had more pictures of me doing it. My 38th birthday activity showed I wasn't completely out if shape!

    I fell from about 13 feet at one point, near the end of the day. I was trying a harder difficulty path, and the handhold I wanted was a few inches out if reach, and with my legs shaking and tired...I leaped for it, and felt my fingers slide off as I dropped. Right on my derrière. Didn't hurt, but it was shocking! :lol:

    If this keeps up the name of the thread will need to be changed to Puppy Central.

    Not like that'd be a bad thing, though. :)
