That's why I take transit into the city. I have my cane which in itself gets me a seat, and if it doesn't it can accidentally fall in someone whose seat I would like..

We have to drive 6+ hours. No transit. We almost had a major accident when we were stopped behind a semi and a car behind us was flying and almost caused a pileup if they crashed into us. Their tires were smoking when they pulled into the other lane, narrowly avoiding us.

It's why we moved out of Denver so many years ago...that and being held a gunpoint by a shoplifter.

To be independent and do it on my own, as well as knowing during the activities when my body had enough but to adapt by sitting down and still participating felt so good. Seeing everyone was awesome and we were combined with another group so sharing and comparing was great.

Today I am working on a couple of hats I have to finish and get sent off and that's good because I can do that in my recliner with various heat and ice packs as needed. I can also have my netbook beside me so I am in touch with my DC family! I got a new Classical CD in the mail yesterday so it will be nice to listen to that!

But that is all after I make DH's dinner and his lunch to take to work.
You sound so Upbeat. It makes me just smile to hear you this way. Keep it up honey. You will make it.

I'm so sorry PF you need to come live here and breath some of our nice clean smogg Really try to stay out of the smoke as much as you can. I hate to think of two of my girls having headaches.

I have the fans and a humidifier going in the apartment with all the windows closed. Home is a good place, so is work. But, it's heck having to go outside. Thanks, Ma and LP.

I only drive up to Denver if I have to. The Colorado Springs area is nice, although it has really grown in the 30+ years we have lived here.

I'm listening to the owl on the roof of the house. It is a great horned owl. He visits almost nightly and talks to another one close by. They have beautiful voices.
