My mother is 96 years old, just survived abdominal surgery, is home and doing great.
I have a friend who sold all of her belongings including her house and is a week into touring the world starting with walking the Camino de Santiago http://www.followthecamino.com/ trail in Spain.
I have two friends who breed, raise, and train Arabian horses.
I have one brother. He is retired from Ford Motor Company and travels in an RV from Michigan out west and to Florida.
I planted onions and shallots last week.
I am going to schedule a stem cell transplant soon and maybe I will be able to walk without pain again.
I have two best friends I have had for over 40 years. They are two men who have been partnered for 50+ years.
Movies are boring.
I always am reading a book.
Leaving a client's house in New Orleans
I rode motorcycles all my life and only stopped when walking got difficult.
My first car was a 1953 Mercury, red over black.
I first noticed my peripheral neuropathy in 1995. Thought I had a ping pong ball in my shoe. Boy, was I wrong.
Walking around on the Mt Rainier trail
I ran away from home for an entire year to climb mountains.
I have climbed 14 of the 14ers in Colorado, Mt Rainier, Half Dome and El Cap. Took me several years.
Skiing or I should say, falling in A Basin,
I was a skier mostly in Michigan where I grew up and then in Colorado. I wasn’t very good, but still loved it.
I left school in January 1969 in Chicago and drove straight south to New Orleans where it was warm. I had a drink while listening to a live jazz band on Easter Sunday morning in the French Quarter, found I could take my drink with me and walk around with it. I didn’t move until a couple of years ago.
Scootering in Rocky Mountain National Park
While I love my scooter because I can’t get anywhere without it, I hate the idea that I need it.
What about you?
