Random Acts of Spontaneous Exercise

As I was sitting at my computer the other day, a nice looking couple walks by our house. Nothing too unusual. 5 minutes later, they walk back the other way - this time they stop and break out in a impromptu exercise session featuring the high tech workings of a hulahoop! One had the orange hoop, the other a jump rope. They went at it full volume for a few minutes, stopped and traded equipment, then resumed. Back and forth... back and forth. Then came the stretching. Oh, the slow, thorough stretching. With tenderness and care, they would help each other work out those quads and hammies, but they never overlooked the lower back, which got some special, special attention. 20 minutes this continued, and then they were gone. As you can see, the cat was fascinated.
