    still making progress!

    I'm starting to transition to a cane from walker and wheelchair after my strokes. PT can suck, but there's no denying that it's working for me.I still need the chair and/or for long days/Excursions, because as I fatigue, I lose coordination and risk a fall, but I am getting there at least!

    Progress is good! Keep at it.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    I'd ask for help shoveling my driveway but you're in luck, I think it's finally starting to warm up a bit here.

    Stay away from those Excursions. They suck on gas mileage.

    When you can raise that cane and yell "Get off my damned lawn you rotten kids", we'll know you're back.
