Good for you PDS! I slept through your final moments of work. I am proud of you and congratulate you on your new found freedom!

The last thing that made me smile was today on my way home from physio. I shared my HandyDart (our local bus service for people with disabilities) both there and back with a lady who lives close by me. She had a stroke in April which affected her speach and her right side. She uses a walker but is doing remarkably well on all counts. We had some time to talk while waiting for our driver to show up at the hospital for the return trip and she was telling me how before this happened she was the type of person who would race past a person with a disability and had really never had to deal with any long term health issues for herself or anyone she knew. She said that she is much better off than a lot of people and the stroke has changed her perspective of others.

WOW!!! Here is a woman who finds talking, walking and using her hand difficult for every day things and she is happy because it has helped her to see the light when it comes to others. I was complaining because I have felt so rotten this last year and I have the opportunity of getting better!

We chatted the whole way to my place and then told each other how nice it was to meet, take care, have a good weekend and see you next Friday (and both meant all of it).

Oh, my, I really am looking forward to seeing this lady again because she has really made me think.....and smile!

I picked up Sammy (my grandson, 7 yo) from school yesterday, as I do everyday.

As we drove away, he asked me "Grandpa-what are you eating under there?"

Of course my response was, Under where? Of course, to a 7 year old my response was "underwear", and he laughed and laughed, and so did I

That is so funny! I will have to tell my grandson so he can pull it on his mom and stepdad!
