Tales from the trail: Meet Gloria, 88 years young!

One of the things I love about my daily morning trysts on the Seminole Wekiva Trail are the amazing and inspirational people I encounter. They come in all shapes sizes and ages, and most move their assets on a daily basis. Meet the fantastically fit and fabulous Gloria Newberger who I’ve known for years and is truly beautiful inside and out:

Gloria 88 years young!

Pause, pace, and absorb the fact that this lovely Ohio native and transplant to Florida is 88 years young! Wait, WHAT? Yes you heard me right! She is sharper than a tack, has more zest and joy for life than almost anyone I know and she moves her assets daily, of course. Oh and her daily glass of wine probably helps to bring out her inner asset queen as well! Thank you Gloria for showing us that we can be asset-moving youngsters in our 80s rather than asset-plotzing oldsters in our 40s! Hmm, which would YOU rather be? The choice is yours and you are welcome to join our asset-moving queendom (or kingdom) at any time.

Where (in the world) is The Asset Queen?

I know you’ve missed my perky little quips and tasty little tips since I’ve been MIA for a while. Or maybe you’ve enjoyed the break from me and my asset-moving antics…Aww shucks, really? 🙁

That’s OK because I’m back, better than ever and ready to tell some tales and inspire you to move those fine, young assets of yours like never before. Believe it or not, The AQ (that’s moi’) is gonna be kinda quiet with this one and catch you up on my latest and greatest trek through Montreal with pictures, rather than my blabbermouth. Hey, they say a picture is worth a gazillion words, or something like that right? Well here goes:

I took my niece Alyssa (21) and my stepdaughter Talia (24) on a (surprise) girls trip to Montreal. Of course, I made it clear that this was an asset-moving tour and we’d rarely be plotzed on our tuchuses. Except maybe for the plane ride…

…and maybe for a few meals. Yes it’s ok to plotz whilst partaking in great food!…

And I think you are well aware that The Asset Queen (moi’) loves to partake in great food! You will never catch moi’ throwing shrubs and twigs into a blender and calling it a meal…G-d forbid! Eeww!…

Me with food of course

Alyssa and Talia were real troopers because we walked everywhere, and I mean everywhere! And Talia was even sporting this lovely boot on her left foot…

We move our assets for an average of 10 miles daily. Through MacGill University campus…

…through Old Montreal, the Latin Quarter, The Village, downtown, yada yada yada. We cheated and took an Uber to the top of Mount Royal. Talia’s foot needed a break…

Mount Royal

We took a three-hour drive to Quebec City so we could spend a day walking there too. Uh, no we did not walk up this hill; I am not that meshuga! We took the funicular of course!…

We did not walk up here

The girls wore me out! I came home exhausted and they are raring to go again.

Even I (The AQ) need to recharge my asset-moving battery, every so often, which is why you haven’t heard from me in decades, uh days. But I’m here to let you know I’m back!

“My mission is NOT to make you an Olympic athlete;  it is to PREVENT you from being the star of the ‘I’ve fallen and I can’t get up commercial!’ Stick with me so there will be no slow-moving motorized scooters, no grab bars installed by your toilette’, and no deprivation diets ever again… in YOUR future!”—Luv, The Asset Queen
